Short description of a selection of projects:

TV PILOTS:

  • Furuvik: Furuvik follows the love tale of a girl and a ghost from a sunken ship (M/S Estonia 1994) -The series involves a group of lost souls from a sunken ship, covens (so-called ‘contingents’) of good and evil witches, a poltergeist that lives underwater, a group of ragtag black-metal nerds and everything revolves around the young couple in love.

 

  • The New Age: ‘The New Age’  is a comedy about a collective of ‘holier-than-thou’ greenies (vegans, freegans, sustainable nuts, yoga buffs and New Agers) who turn to scamming in order to support their wholesome lifestyles. Brandon, a hippie-hating, meat-eating hacker, is drawn into their crime ring and reluctantly becomes it’s leader. Almost like a ‘Life of Brian’.

 

  • Big Time: A dark and comedic look at the rise and fall of the dot-com bubble in the 1990s in Stockholm. Two companies go head to head in the race - one comes out of the bubble the other in defeat and injury

.

  • Wife: A professional dance troupe has to teach wannabe suburbanites in order to stay afloat.  

 

  • Boomers: What if your most personal, life secret was exposed to the entire nation? How would you tell your children? And what if you became the reluctant spokesperson for a new sexual revolution? These are questions we’ll probably never ask ourselves. However, for comfortably retired Janey and Fred Dekker of ParkPalisades, California, these are all very relevant questions.
