- Swedish drama series stars Rakel Wärmländer (`Eva & Adam'), Louise Peterhoff (`The Truth Will Out') and Sofia Helin (`The Bridge')
- `Limbo' produced by Warner Bros ITVP Sweden (NENT Group's `Love Me' and `Partisan')
- NENT Group to premiere at least 60 Viaplay Originals in 2022
A trio of Sweden's biggest acting talents will headline `Limbo', the next Viaplay Original from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), one of the world's fastest growing streaming companies. Rakel Wärmländer (`Eva & Adam'), Louise Peterhoff (`The Truth Will Out') and Sofia Helin (`The Bridge') star in the six-part drama series, produced by Warner Bros ITVP Sweden (NENT Group's `Love Me' and the Canneseries winner `Partisan'). `Limbo' will premiere exclusively on NENT Group's Viaplay streaming service in 2022.
A late-night phone call changes everything for Ebba (Rakel Wärmländer), My (Sofia Helin) and Gloria (Louise Peterhoff). The news that their respective sons have been involved in a serious car crash puts their friendship and priorities to the ultimate test, and with Ebba's son Jakob hovering between life and death, the three women find themselves in a devastatingly uncertain situation - in limbo.
Rakel Wärmländer: "Every character has their own problems, which the accident either diminishes or makes worse. Our series doesn't try to paint a pretty picture, simply to show something true. It's a mixture of the ugly, beautiful, shallow and deep all at once, just like life itself."
Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group Chief Content Officer: "Every relationship has many layers, and `Limbo' shows how a single moment can turn even the closest friendships upside down. Unique Nordic storytelling is at the heart of our strategy to bring Viaplay to new markets around the world. Starring three of Sweden's biggest screen talents, this is a poignant and compelling show of the highest quality that will be relevant to audiences everywhere."
`Limbo' is scripted by Emma Broström (`Knocking') and Rakel Wärmländer and directed by Sofia Adrian Jupither (`Helt perfekt'). The series is currently filming in Stockholm.
