Christopher Læssø i ny YouSee-serie

Ydmygende hundsen, slag over nakken og toiletrengøring er hverdagskost for stik-i-rend-drengen Nicki; en ung fyr, der ihærdigt prøver at arbejde sig op i en unavngiven rockerklub på den københavnske vestegn. Men pludseligt en dag, da et af de højtstående rockere bliver løsladt fra fængslet, får Nicki en unik chance, der kan vende op og ned på hans lavtstående tilværelse. Han må tænke sig godt og grundigt om, for hans valg kan have fatale konsekvenser.

‘Frit Land’ er en prequel til den populære YouSee-serie ‘2 Døgn’, hvor man som seer bliver taget med til Københavns Vestegn og får et autentisk indblik i forstadens hårdkogte bandemiljø.  
2. sæson af Nicholai Achtons og Oscar Dyekjær Gieses nervepirrende ungdomsserie, ‘Frit Land’, foregår tre år forinden, og denne gang centrerer serien sig om den low-life kriminelle Nicki Nørrebro (Sebastian Bull) og hans introduktion til den lokale bande.  
 
Christopher Læssø udfolder sig som det temperamentsfulde bandemedlem Simon, som er en god kammerat til den nyløsladte Markus (Gustav Dyekjær Giese). Simon og Markus tager den underdanige Nicki under deres vinger, og det er her, Nicki møder dilemmaer, der skal vise sig at være skelsættende for hans fremtid i den kriminelle underverden.

'Frit Land’ er en miniserie på 4 episoder af 20 minutter hver. Den er proppet med intensitet og barske scener, hvor nervepirrende hændelser udfolder sig gennem en poetisk fortælling og portrættering af det rå bandemiljø på Vestegnen.

Netflix is launching Elves, a new Danish Netflix original series from the creators and the executive producers behind The Rain on November 28th. Elves will bring back the real, monstrous beings that inspired the folklore and myths we all know.

The Danish language series was shot outside of Copenhagen and stars Rasmus Hammerich (A Horrible Woman) – and Ann Eleonora Jørgensen (Ride Upon the Storm), Peder Thomas Pedersen (The Lawyer), Lila Nobel (The Rain) and Lukas Løkken (The Rain).

Hoping to reconnect over Christmas, a family of four travel to a remote island in the Danish archipelago, only to find it controlled by members of a strongly religious community living in balance with fierce creatures in the woods revealed to be… elves. Real, monstrous beings that inspired the folklore and myths we all know. When the girl in the family finds and brings home a baby elf, she inadvertently disrupts the balance and throws everyone on the island into a life-or-death battle for faith, family and pure survival.

The original series is composed of six episodes and set in Denmark and is created and written by Stefan Jaworski (Those Who Kill, The Candidate), directed by Roni Ezra (The New Nurses) and produced by Elise H. Lund for Miso Film. Elves is based on an original idea of Jannik Tai Mosholt and Christian Potalivo (The Rain), who also serve as executive producers together with Peter Bose and Jonas Allen from Miso Film.

Peter Bose, CEO & Producer at Miso Film says: "With our new Netflix show Elves we continue the strong partnership we have been building with Netflix through three seasons of The Rain. Elves is a Christmas horror show exploring the premise ‘What if Elves were real and dangerous? and once again Netflix shows that they dare when others don't. We praise that Netflix opens the doors to new genres which we couldn't afford to develop and produce in the past in our local market. Elves will be shot entirely in the greater area of Copenhagen and we look very much forward to giving Netflix' subscribers a unique take on the Christmas genre".

Tesha Crawford, Director Netflix International Originals Northern Europe: “There are a lot of reasons why we are excited about this new Danish production. First off, teaming up again with our long term partners at Miso Film - who have proven to be such great storytellers. Secondly, tapping into the local myths that have always such great resonance in the Nordic region and being able to transform this into a modern day Christmas story- with a little touch of horror.”

Christopher Læssø som klassens fallerede stjerne i ny Tv2 Zulu serie

En 10 års gymnasie-reunion, et færgeforlis og seks tidligere klassekammerater fanget på en ø på ubestemt tid.

Sådan lyder ansatsen til TV2 Zulu’s nye ungdomsserie ‘Blå Bog For Evigt’, hvor Christopher Læssø spiller karakteren ‘Theis’ - klassens populære dreng, der blev spået en lovende fremtid, men et årti senere stadig venter længselsfuldt på sit store gennembrud som komiker.

Da 3.w. får sat i værk, at deres 10 års reunion skal afholdes på en lille ø, virker det som verdens bedste idé. Da øens eneste livslinje til fastlandet, en færge, støder på grund sent ud på aftenen, efterlades seks klassekammerater pludselig strandet på øen på ubestemt tid.
Hurtigere end de ved af det, indtræder de seks kammerater i deres gamle roller, og står pludselig ansigt til ansigt med deres yngre jeg. I stedet for en uforpligtende reunion, sætter øen nu nærmere en klaustrofobisk ramme, hvor de seks kammerater konfronteres med uforløste drømme, ungdommens naivitet, fortidens romancer og fremtidens kvælende uvished, alt imens ø-kulleren langsomt breder sig.

Der er lagt op til 5 episoder med utallige humoristiske scener, tåkrummende hændelser og rørende øjeblikke, når Christopher Læssø i selskab med bl.a. Jesper Ole Feit Andersen, Sofie Jo Kaufmanas og Josefine Tvermoes, tvinges til at gøre op med fortiden for - måske - at blive klogere på fremtiden.

Serien er skabt af Claes Quaade, og har premiere 5. september på TV2 Zulu og TV2 Play. Peter Molde-Amelung fungerer som konceptuerende instruktør og Esben Tønnesen som episode-instruktør. Serien er produceret af Mille Bjørke og Mastiff, og har Nikolaj Feifer som kreativ producer.

-----------------------------------------

Christopher Læssø stars in new comedy series

A 10 year high school reunion, a crashed ferry and six former classmates trapped on an island for indefinite time.

That’s roughly the center of TV2 Zulu’s new series ‘Blå Bog For Evigt’ where Christopher Læssø plays the character ‘Theis’ - the once popular guy in school with a promising future, who finds himself ten years later still waiting for his big breakthrough as a comedian.

When the former classmates from 3.w. arrange that their 10 year reunion should be held at a tiny island, everyone is on board. But when the only ferry connecting the island to the mainland crashes in the middle of the night, six classmates are suddenly trapped on the island indefinitely.
Before they realise it, old patterns quickly rise to the surface and the six classmates suddenly stand face to face with their younger self. Instead of being the host of a joyful reunion, the island is now center stage of a showdown, where the former classmates are forced to face broken dreams, unresolved expectations, old romances and the uncertainty of the future all while the walls are slowly getting closer.

The series consists of 5 episodes of humoristic scenes, embarrassing altercations and heartfelt moments when Christopher Læssø in the company of i.a. Jesper Ole Feit Andersen, Sofie Jo Kaufmanas and Josefine Tvermoes, is forced to face the past to - perhaps - gain valuable insight of the future.

The Tv-series was created by Claes Quaade and premiers on the 5th of September on TV2 Zulu and TV2 Play. Peter Molde-Amelung as conceptualizing director and Esben Tønnesen as episode director. The series is produced by Mille Bjørke and Mastiff with Nikolaj Feifer as creative producer.

Martin Høgsted i ny romantisk spillefilm af Anders W. Berthelsen

Der er lagt op til en vaskeægte romantisk komedie, når Martin Høgsted medvirker i ‘Lykkelige omstændigheder’ hvor han indtager en af de centrale roller som ‘Steen’. Høgsted’s karakter vil igennem filmen være ramt af akutte kærlighedskvaler, da han pludselig bliver forladt af sin kone, og får revet fundamentet væk under sig.

Spillefilmen ‘Lykkelige omstændigheder’ centrerer sig om to søstre, Karoline og Katrine. Som børn var de uadskillelige og bedste venner - i voksenlivet befinder de sig i hver sin ende af samfundet. Den ene, Karoline, lever i et forgældet forhold med den arbejdsløse DJ Ronnie. Den anden, Katrine, virker til at have det hele med sin ‘villa, Volvo og vovse-konstellation’ med den succesfulde bygmester Markus - dog er parret ufrivilligt barnløse. Da Karoline pludselig bliver gravid ved et uheld, kommer søsteren Katrine derfor op med en snedig plan. Katrine betaler Karolines gæld og mere til, hvis hun til gengæld får Karolines barn. De to søstre indgår den skæbnesvangre aftale, men intet kommer til at gå som planlagt..

Komedien stiller skarpt på den moderne skildring af livet og rejser flere eksistentielle spørgsmål som: Er den gængse fortælling om “det gode liv” i virkeligheden det der gør os lykkelige? Og hvornår indser vi, at vi måske leder efter det, vi drømmer om alle de forkerte steder?

I “Lykkelige omstændigheder” er Martin Høgsteds karakter ‘Steen’ bror til karakteren ‘Markus’, spillet af Esben Smed. Derudover spiller Martin Høgsted også overfor et prominent cast bestående af bl.a. Sofie Torp, Roberta Reichhardt, Søren Malling og Joachim Fjelstrup.

Spillefilmen er sat til premiere d. 7 april 2022, og bliver skuespiller Anders W. Berthelsens debut som solo-instruktør. Filmen er baseret på manuskript af Robert-vinderen Kim Fupz Aakeson og er produceret af Thomas Heinesen for Nordisk Film med støtte fra Det Danske Filminstitut, Kolding Kommune, YouSee og Clausen Group.

------------------------------

Martin Høgsted in an upcoming romantic comedy directed by Anders W. Berthelsen

The making of the brand new romantic comedy ‘Lykkelige omstændigheder’ is still in progress and Martin Høgsted is casted as ‘Steen’ - a character who is suddenly left by his wife and finds himself heartbroken throughout the film.

‘Lykkelige omstændigheder’ is centered around two sisters, Karoline and Katrine. As children they were inseparable and best friends - in adulthood polar opposites with completely different lifestyles. One sister, Karoline, is living in debt and in a relationship with the unemployed DJ Ronnie. The other, Katrine, is in a relationship with the successful Head of Construction Markus, having everything except children. When Karoline suddenly finds herself pregnant, Katrine comes up with a plan. She’ll pay Karolines debt and more, if she gets the baby in return. The two sisters agree to the unusual trade-off, but nothing goes according to the plan…

The comedy highlights the modern way of living and raises existential questions like: Is the traditional tale of “the good life” really what makes us happy? And are we looking for all the right things in all the wrong places?

In ‘Lykkelige omstændigheder’ Martin Høgsteds joins the team of a prominent cast excisting of i.a. Esben Smed, Sofie Torp, Roberta Reichhardt, Søren Malling and Joachim Fjelstrup.

The film is set to premiere on the 7th of April 2022, and is actor Anders W. Berthelsen’s debut as solo-director. The story is based on Robert-winning Kim Fupz Aakesons script, and produced by Thomas Heinesen for Nordisk Film with support from The Danish Film Institute, Kolding municipality, YouSee and Clausen Group.
