The Art of Living, a six-part documentary series from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), is slated to premiere exclusively on Viaplay on January 3.
Co-created by top Swedish chef Niklas Ekstedt, The Art of Living sees him travel to the regions around the world that have unusually high numbers of people reach an advanced age in a quest to find the hidden recipe for a long and healthy life. The English-language show is produced by Mastiff and developed by Banijay Factory in co-operation with Niklas Ekstedt.
NENT Group’s other upcoming original documentaries include The Last Journey of the Vikings and two seasons of American Runestone, created by Peter Stormare (The Blacklist, Prison Break). The original docs Swedish Sin, Couple Thinkers, Superswede and Manson’s Bloodline have already premiered on Viaplay.
Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group’s chief content officer, said: “NENT Group’s original documentaries continue to tear up the script, and there’s no better way for our factual slate to reach double figures than by asking one of the biggest questions of all—how can we live longer and better? Through a personal journey that takes Viaplay viewers from the forests of southern Sweden to Japan’s Okinawa islands, charismatic chef Niklas Ekstedt reveals new ways of living and eating that will both surprise and inspire. What an appetizing way to start the new year!”
