Swedish Dicks is heading to millions of households thanks to US cable and satellite network Pop TV, nordicfilmandtvnews.com reports.
The Swedish comedy-drama tells the story of former stuntman Ingmar Andersson (Peter Stormare), who works as a private investigator in Los Angeles. He crosses paths with struggling DJ, Axel Kruse (Johan Glans), who has given up his DJ career and decides to become a partner in his firm Swedish Dick, which becomes Swedish Dicks. Together, they sold various cases and compete with Ingmar’s long-time rival and owner of the best investigating company in Los Angeles, Jane McKinney (Traci Lords).
Swedish Dicks is directed by Jon Holmberg & Peter Settman and written by Settman, Andrew Lowery & The Viking Brothers.
Swedish Dicks was first released on Nordic streaming service Viaplay and was the most in-demand original series in Sweden that year. This will be the only Scandinavian drama airing on Pop TV in 2017-18 (which we think should be more!). Swedish Dicks currently holds a 6.5/10 on IMDb, with users describing it as ‘quirky’ and likening it to Lillehammer.
