The story is exciting: Hoping to reconnect over Christmas, a family of four travels 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.

Rasmus Hammerich stars in ‘Elves’ – The new Danish Netflix Original

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 in new Tv2 Zulu series

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.

Ditte Arnth stars in the comedy ‘Klemt’ on TV2 Zulu

Lars Hundebøll has directed the new tv-series ‘Klemt’ - a colorful and humorous story about being on the verge to adulthood and the many awkward, embarrassing and funny altercations all leading up to it.

‘Klemt’ is the story about a young woman ‘Stina’ who’s not completely satisfied with her job as a tv host at the popular children's show ‘7-9-13’.

In order to achieve what she wants, she has to endure numerous trials and tribulations to get one step closer to her dream.

Ditte Arnth is part of a young talented cast, including i.a. Mathilde Passer, Elias Munk, Sofie Jo Kaufmanas and Ida Marie Nielsen - not to mention the rising star, the comedian Eva Jin, who plays the lead as the quirky and dreamy ‘Stina’.

Julefeber med Martin Høgsted vinder en Robert

Den populære julekalender på DR vinder prisen for Årets korte Tv-serie ved Robertprisen 2021.

Nisser, ballet og glöggøbleskiver er blot få af ingredienserne til sidste års anmelderroste julekalender på Danmarks Radio, om teenageren Bjørn og hans lille familie.

'Julefeber' er en magisk fortælling, der sat i kontrastfulde rammer mellem Urbanplanen og det Kongelige Teater, fortæller om en lille familie der, selvom de møder megen modstand, kæmper for at holde sammen og holde ud. Om Bjørn der skal finde rundt i sin nye identitet, om Gro der mærker julemagi, om far Kalle der forsøger at give sine børn en god jul og om balletdanseren Frederikke (Maria Szigethy), som skal bevise sit værd som danser.

Julekalenderen har både musik, dans, drama, uhygge og sjov. Smukke scener fra balletdansere i Nødeknækkeren efterfølges af humoristiske indslag med kantinemedarbejderen Ulrik, spillet af Martin Høgsted, der ikke helt ved om han skal spolere hans kollega Kalles (Joachim Fjelstrup) planer, eller om han skal hjælpe med at få julen i hus.

Med mange fine scener og karakterer er 'Julefeber' blevet rost i adskillige medier og i det nye år modtog julekalenderen altså en Robert for bedste korte TV-serie.

– Vi er så lykkelige og taknemmelige. Prisen deler vi med det dygtigste og kærligste filmhold og de skønneste og modigste spillere, siger instruktør Natasha Arthy til Juleweb.dk

Kun én gang før, har en julekalender løbet med prisen i samme kategori.

Christopher Læssø is to play Robin Hood

Christopher Læssø is to play Robin Hood at Folketeatret.

It will be a production depicting humour, romance and the fight for justice, when Folketeatret this October, will open its doors to the famous fairytale set in Sherwood Forest.

The story of Robin Hood and his gang of merry men, has been told far and wide and in all kinds of productions. This didn’t make the story less popular. Nowadays, young and old, most people will know about the dealings of the Sheriff of Nottingham, of Prince John and of the deeds of Robin Hood, Brother Tuck and their friends. However, in this version, some of the characters have had their storyline widened. For most people, Maid Marian, played by Marie Bach Hansen, is known as Robin Hood’s object of affection. However, in this production, she has a story of her own. She, and other women added to the story, can match the skills and wit of any man. Still though, Maid Marian cannot help being impressed by Robin Hoods archery…

This production introduces Christopher Læssø’s Robin Hood as young and naive, but before long, an indignant fire towards social injustice rises within him and soon he can be seen doing what he does best: Stealing from the rich, and giving to the poor - spiced up, with loads of jokes and laughs along the way.

This version of Robin Hood, was written by Tony- and Olivier award winning Ken Ludwig. With shows on both Broadway and in London’s West End, his plays has become widely popular and has been shown in over 25 countries. And now, Robin Hood, will make it to a stage in Copenhagen.

Christopher Læssø is no stranger to Folketeatret, having previously starred in ‘Mød mig på Cassiopeia’.

Robin Hood will premiere at Folketeatret at October 15th 2020.
