Banijay announced Norwegian scripted label, Rubicon, has produced a new eight-part drama for Discovery Nordic, which is set to be released soon. The show will be distributed internationally, outside of Discovery Nordic markets, by Banijay Rights.

“Nach” (“After Party” in English) follows university dropout Selma as she struggles with feelings for her half-sister’s boyfriend August. After being thrown out of her houseshare, she moves in with big sister Elin and becomes caught up with emotions for her sister’s boyfriend. The situation unravels during eight very different after-parties throughout the summer.

The series is set to launch on Discovery Nordic this spring. Anne Bjørnstad and Fridrik H. Mar serves as Executive Producers for Rubicon AS and Fredrik Kvåle Dørum serves as Executive Producer for Discovery Networks Norway AS. Produced by Stine Blichfeldt, the series was written by Mads Stegger and Ernst De Geer, and the directors are Ernst De Geer and Fanny Ovesen.

“Norwegian drama is well-known for its fantastic quality, and ‘Nach’ lives up to all expectations of the market’s creativity. This nostalgic tale of life blossoming into adulthood is beautifully produced and is a wonderful addition to Banijay’s scripted slate,”  said Lars Blomgren, Head of Scripted at Banijay.

Anne Bjørnstad, from Rubicon, added: “‘Nach’ captures the borrowed time and carefree atmosphere of a party before daybreak when real life hasn’t yet begun. It mirrors the phase when young people make momentous decisions which alter their path forever. This realistic drama portrays this unique time of the human journey and will have viewers hooked”.
