US cable and satellite network Pop TV pick up ‘Swedish Dicks’

Swedish Dicks is heading to millions of households thanks to US cable and satellite network Pop TV, nordicfilmandtvnews.com reports.

The Swedish comedy-drama tells the story of former stuntman Ingmar Andersson (Peter Stormare), who works as a private investigator in Los Angeles. He crosses paths with struggling DJ, Axel Kruse (Johan Glans), who has given up his DJ career and decides to become a partner in his firm Swedish Dick, which becomes Swedish Dicks. Together, they sold various cases and compete with Ingmar’s long-time rival and owner of the best investigating company in Los Angeles, Jane McKinney (Traci Lords).

Swedish Dicks is directed by Jon Holmberg & Peter Settman and written by Settman, Andrew Lowery & The Viking Brothers. 

Swedish Dicks was first released on Nordic streaming service Viaplay and was the most in-demand original series in Sweden that year. This will be the only Scandinavian drama airing on Pop TV in 2017-18 (which we think should be more!). Swedish Dicks currently holds a 6.5/10 on IMDb, with users describing it as ‘quirky’ and likening it to Lillehammer.
