Netflix Lines Up Swedish Romantic Dramedy


Netflix has re-teamed with FLX, the production company behind Quicksand, for the Swedish romantic dramedy Love & Anarchy.

The eight-part series features Sofie, a career-driven consultant and married mother of two. When Sofie gets an assignment to modernize an old publishing house she meets young IT tech Max, and an unexpected flirting game begins. Love & Anarchy is created by Lisa Langseth, whose credits include feature films like Euphoria, Hotell and Pure. Langseth also serves as the head writer together with Alex Haridi (Quicksand, Blue Eyes, Real Humans).

Tesha Crawford, director of international originals for Netflix Northern Europe, said: “We instantly fell in love with this female-led project. Not only does the story follows a strong female character, but we are also happy to team up with the talented Lisa Langseth and continue the great collaboration with FLX. We are looking forward to bringing this show to life with this amazing team.”

Frida Asp and Fatima Varhos, producers Love & Anarchy, added: “To continue our great collaboration with Netflix, with a project like Love & Anarchy, and having the honor to work with Lisa Langseth, one of Sweden’s most interesting and talented directors, is a dream come true. We are so happy that Netflix has the guts and faith to work with us on an original idea and we’re going to have so much fun.”
