The international drama series ‘Furia’ is the next original production from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), the Nordic region’s leading streaming company. Created by International Emmy winner Gjermund Stenberg Eriksen (‘Mammon’) and filmed in Norway and Germany, ‘Furia’ explores the violent and disturbing world of right-wing extremism. The series will premiere exclusively across the Nordic region on NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service in 2021.

The series is co-produced by Norway’s Monster Scripted (‘Nobel’; ‘For Life’) and Germany’s X Filme Creative Pool (‘Babylon Berlin’) and public broadcaster ZDF, and is distributed globally by Keshet International. The eight-part show is directed by Magnus Martens, who has helmed episodes of major US series such as ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’, ‘The Walking Dead: World Beyond’ and ‘Good Behavior’, and Lars Kraume (‘The People vs. Fritz Bauer’). ‘Furia’ co-stars Trond Espen Seim (‘Mammon’), Preben Hodneland (NENT Group’s ‘The Machinery’) and Henrik Mestad (NENT Group’s ‘Occupied’).

In ‘Furia’, a shocking killing in an idyllic Norwegian town leads police investigator Asgeir (Pål Sverre Hagen: ‘Beforeigners’) to undercover cop Ragna (Ine Marie Willmann: ‘Exit’), as she infiltrates a nationalistic subculture. A journey into a horrifying underworld of hatred follows, and a terrorist plot that reaches from Norway’s mountains to the very heart of Europe is revealed. But is everyone really who they seem to be?

Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group Chief Content Officer, said: “It’s uncommon to see a female lead character who appears to be driven by such extreme rage as Ragna, which makes her a grimly fascinating focus for this complex and topical series. ‘Furia’ explores some of the most disturbing subjects of any Viaplay original yet – this is noir from a truly dark place. We have brought together an incredible line-up of Norwegian talent to tell an ambitious story that will engage and unsettle streaming audiences across the Nordic region and beyond.”
