Two Danish television series to compete at Series Mania

Two Danish television series have been selected for the official competition at Series Mania, which is a major television festival and industry event that is held in France.

The first of the two series in the competition is The Rain, which is also Denmark’s first Netflix Original Series. Starring Mikkel Boe Følsgaard and Alba August, the series is about two siblings who embark on a journey for safety after a virus wipes out most of the population.

The series will be released on Netflix on the 8th of May 2018.

The second series is Warrior, directed and co-written by Christoffer Boe.

Two Danish series produced by Miso Film will screen in the official competition. Warrior is a crime drama starring Dar Salim and Danica Curcic that explores loyalty and treachery among war veterans, bikers and the police force. The series was first pitched at Series Mania’s Co-Production Forum in 2016.

As we said yesterday, several series will also be pitched at the Co-Production Forum. Furthermore, the Norwegian series The Oil Fund, Finland’s Dragonslayer666 and the Danish series Greyzone and Liberty will screen in the International Panorama section. The Finnish series Idiomatic will screen in the Marathon Comedy section, and Norway’s Amir will compete at the Short Digital Format programme.

Sofia Helin will be attendance to discuss the final season of The Bridge, which is screening at the New Seasons section.
