Christopher Læssø as hardcore gang-member in new YouSee-series
Humiliation, physical slaps and toilet cleaning are everyday occurrences for the underdog Nicki; a young guy who is diligently trying to work his way up in an unnamed street gang in a suburban area west of Copenhagen. But one day, when one of the high-ranking gang members is released from prison, Nicki gets a unique opportunity that can turn his life upside down. But he must consider his actions carefully, because his decisions can have fatal consequences.
‘Frit Land’ is a prequel to the popular YouSee Tv series ‘2 Døgn’, where the audience is taken to the suburban area west of Copenhagen to get an authentic insight into the hard-boiled gang environment. The second season of Nicolai Achton and Oscar Dyekjær Gieses nervewracking tv-serie, ‘Frit Land’, takes place three years earlier, and this time it focuses on the low-life criminal Nicki Nørrebro (Sebastian Bull) and his introduction to the local gang.
Christopher Læssøs acts the role as the temperamental gang member Simon, who is also a good friend of the newly prison-released Markus (Gustav Dyekjær Giese). Simon and Markus take the submissive Nicki under their wings, and this is when Nicki faces dilemmas which can define his future in the criminal gangland.
‘Free Land’ is a Danish crime drama series comprising a total of four episodes which each are 20 minutes in length. Through a poetic narrative of the urban street gang, the series is portraying the inside of the criminal world on Vestegnen. It is full of intensity and disturbing scenes, that keeps the audience engaged throughout the duration of the show.
The series is created by Nicolai Achton and Oscar Dyekjær Giese, and premiers on the 11th of April at YouSee. Nicolai Achton is the director of all four episodes, Oscar Dyekjær Giese wrote the script, and the series is produces by DriveStudios with producer Anders N. Berg in lead.
