Swedish Dicks (2016– )
The six-part English language series will also star Johan Glans (“Swedish Dicks”) and John Noble (“Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”). “Home Invasion” will premiere across the Nordics in 2020 exclusively on Nent Group’s
ambitious streaming service, “Viaplay.”
Don Bitters (“House of Cards”) will direct and create the visual effects for “Home Invasion.” It’s executive produced by Melanie Dipietro at Brain Academy.
“Home Invasion” will center on a normal family made up of aliens sent to invade Earth. The series tells the story of two burglars who breaks into a house who find themselves face to face with an absurd close encounter.
“Nent Group has a unique ability to bring together talent from all over the world to tell fascinating stories with a Nordic twist.

Based on the series of novels by Pekka Hiltunen, the drama is billed as the biggest yet out of Finland and will bow on the Viaplay streaming service in Scandinavia. With a cast from all over Europe and a shoot spanning Belgium, Finland, Ireland, and the U.K., “Cold Courage” is international in scope and ambition.
That was part of the appeal for Simm, a familiar face on British TV, playing The Master in “Doctor Who” and starring in a host of other shows for British networks. “There was a point I was on BBC and ITV at the same time and that was a bit much,” he told Variety. “I thought it would be nice to step away from that for a little bit and do something I haven’t done,
The 10-part show was created for Nordic Entertainment Group’s Viaplay streaming service and has been picked up in key territories, including in the U.S. by Hulu and in Australia by Sbs. Co-writer, director and star Rafael Edholm is on board to help develop the U.S. adaptation.
The remake is also being developed by Fredrik Lundberg for HandsUp Sthlm, together with Kim Magnusson (“I Kill Giants”) and Madwood Studios’ Michael Flutie (“Westside”), for both the U.S. and international markets.
Nordic Entertainment (Nent) Group has a longstanding relationship with Lionsgate Television, as the U.S. company is handling the worldwide sales of Nent Group’s original productions “Swedish Dicks,
The joint venture will operate under the FilmNation brand and is currently assembling its creative team. As both companies boast a deep knowledge of the global content marketplace and have successful track records, the new banner will work with a wide variety of U.K. studios, talents and co-financiers.
An independent film powerhouse founded by Basner 10 years ago, FilmNation has recently started focusing more on content creation, with B.O. hits such as “Arrival” and “The Big Sick,” and has a flurry of high-profile TV projects in the pipeline, notably “I Know This Much Is True” (currently in pre-production) starring Mark Ruffalo for HBO, and “Feminist Fight Club” and “The House of the Spirits” for Hulu.
Mtg is also still looking to sell its 95% stake in Bulgarian commercial media group Nova and is currently in talks with several buyers. Mtg had previously made an agreement to sell Nova to Ppf Group, but the deal was not approved by Bulgaria’s anti-trust board.
Mtg will be splitting off its TV operations, including Mtg Studios and Splay Networks, into a separate entity, Nent Group (Nordic Entertainment Group), in March. Nent Group will also be listed on the stock market. The banner encompasses the TV channel TV3, the satellite TV platform Viasat and the streaming service Viaplay, as well as the production outfit Nice Entertainment and the distribution banner Drg. The banner’s original drama credits include “Veni Vidi Vici,” “Black Lake,” “Swedish Dicks” and, most recently, the fantasy thriller “Hidden.

Refinery29’s Channel29 is set to launch in the fourth quarter of 2018, as a live and on-demand video destination available on connected-tv devices, smart TVs and the company’s existing digital platforms. It’s designed as a new vehicle to reach engaged audiences with an expanded lineup of original news, entertainment and lifestyle programming — and shopping opportunities.
The company didn’t share many details of Channel29 except that it will be free to watch and ad-supported, and will feature commerce components. R29 also called out its major site redesign last month, intended to put the focus on “consumer action” — to discover and watch content, as well as shop through its ecommerce portal.
The new website design is intended to better “integrate our editorial and shopping experiences,” said Sarah Personette,
The cable network, owned jointly by CBS Corp and Lionsgate, aims for young adults and tends to compete with networks such as Bravo, E! and Lifetime. Pop was once better known as the TV Guide Channel, and showed TV favorites alongside a scrolling grid of programming on the set-top box. Since 2015, however, it has curated a group of original series and older favorites that celebrate fandom.
“We are heading into this year’s upfront with an ever-growing linear television audience, a premium slate of original content with A-list talent, and carriage across all major distributors and almost every over-the-top service,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Pop. “Building on this momentum, we’re introducing more premium scripted content than ever before.”
Pop’s new series include “Clique,” a

Here’s the synopsis: “Neuro-scientist William Foster (Reeves) is on the verge of successfully transferring human consciousness into a computer when his family is tragically killed in a car crash. Desperate to resurrect them, William recruits fellow scientist Ed Whittle (Middleditch) to help him secretly clone their bodies and create replicas. But he soon faces a
In an exclusive sneak peek at Wednesday’s Swedish Dicks, the actor makes his first appearance as Tex, the late best friend of Ingmar (Peter Stormare), who blames himself for his former partner’s death during a stunt gone wrong.
“Careful or you’ll end up like me,” Reeves, 52, warns Stormare in the clip as he prepares to throw himself off the roof of a Los Angeles building.
Ingmar presses Tex for what really happened on the day of his death before realizing that his ghostly pal is no longer by his side.
Stormare plays Ingmar, a broke ex-Hollywood stuntman who opens up an unusually affordable detective agency. Working out of a nondescript downtown L.A. office, one particular job brings fellow Swedish ex-pat Axel (Johan Glans) into his professional orbit. After the two narrowly escape the clutches of a particularly twisty gig, they go into business together. Operating under an agency with the same name as the show’s title, these two Swedes handle their client’s unconventional requests wherever in the city they might lead.

“What Would Diplo Do?” (August 3, Viceland)
James Van Der Beek takes the role of a lifetime as Diplo, the world-famous DJ (who may or may not have spoiled West Coast viewers on the “Breaking Bad” Season 4 finale back in 2011). As Van Der Beek told IndieWire’s Liz Shannon Miller, it’s a series that fulfills a career-long dream, in a way. How well does he pull off the beanie look and channel an internationally recognized producer? We’re eager to find out.
