New Nordic thriller coming our way
As Nordic drama slowly progresses to deeply political war-motivated topics (see: Nobel and Occupied), Danish production companies Nordisk Film and Red Arrow International have teamed up to develop Embassy Down, a new thriller series.
Written by Danish award-winning scriptwriter Anders Frithiof August, the son of Danish director Bille August, Embassy Down takes place when a party for the opening of the United States’ new embassy in Copenhagen becomes a war zone as terrorists storm the building and take staff and guests hostage. August has also written Applause, The Model, and television series The Legacy and Follow the Money.
Embassy Down will be released on the Nordic streaming service Viaplay in 2018.
