Casper Christensen to star in new Nordic mockumentary series

A new Nordic mockumentary series has been picked up by the streaming service Viaplay.

Titled Casper Conquers Norway, the series follows Danish comedian Casper Christensen as he moves to Norway after he offends too many people in his home country of Denmark.

Jakob Mejlhede Andersen, NENT Group’s exec VP and head of content, described the show as “an ideal format for this vibrant talent who blends anarchy, embarrassment and hilarity like nobody else in Denmark (or Norway).”

Casper Christensen is most famous for his leading role in the Klown franchise.

The eight-part series will premiere in autumn 2019 exclusively on Viaplay. No international release date has been announced.
