Norwegian director Ole Giæver announced his next project while at the New Nordic Films market in Haugesund last week, and it seems he is making a change in style. Not only will he bring us genre, he will also bring us a television series.
The film, titled My Wife, My Replica and I, is something of a sci-fi space television series, which is a welcome change from the directors humanistic and deeply realist films, such as Out of Nature and From the Balcony.
My Wife, My Replica and I tells the story of a married couple returning home from a trip to Mars. While heading back, the man learns he isn’t healthy enough to survive the trip. He decides to clone himself with a 3D printer, but then he has to live in close quarters with his wife and his clone.
The series is planned to have 8 x 30-minute episodes and has a budget of 2.6m Euros. Giæver will also star in the series, which he described as ‘a fun but smart sitcom in space’.
My Wife, My Replica and I is currently looking for co-producers and distributors.
