New Swedish thriller series begins shooting this month

A new thriller series from Sweden will begin shooting this month in Göteborg.

Titled ALEX, the series stars Easy Money‘s Dragomir ‘Gago’ Mrsic and is based on his original idea. He plays the ruthless and corrupt police officer Alex who has decided to come to terms with his dubious past and become clean. But the dark forces he has collaborated with earlier refuse to let him off the hook, putting both Alex and his family’s lives at great danger. At the same time, Alex gets a new partner, Frida (Rakel Värmländer from Gåsmamman) who secretly has been instructed to bring him down.

The show is produced by Oscar-nominated Nicklas Wickström Nicastro (A Man Called Ove) of SF Studios, in co-production with Film i Väst and Viaplay. Paris-based About Premium Content (APC) handles world distribution. Lumiere has pre-bought rights for Benelux and MTG-owned Viaplay will premiere the show across the Nordics in spring 2018.
