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.”

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.
