Norway’s ‘Home Ground’ to be remade in France

The Norwegian sports series Home Ground will be remade in France after Lagardere’s GMT Production picked up the rights to the series.

Home Ground is about Helena Mikkelsen (Ane Dahl Torp), who is trying to make it as Europe’s first female coach of a men’s soccer team in the National Premier League in Norway.

The French producers particularly liked how the series focused on a woman trying to make it in a man’s world, and that is something they want to bring to the French version.

Home Ground was produced by NRK and a second season is due to be released in February 2019. The first season was just released in Australia on SBS, and it is still being rolled out to other major streaming platforms around the world.
