The series is created by acclaimed screenwriter and director Lisa Langseth, and produced by FLX, the production company behind Quicksand. "Love & Anarchy" will launch exclusively on Netflix in 2020.
The filming of brand new Swedish Netflix Original "Love & Anarchy" has started in Stockholm, Sweden and the cast includes Ida Engvoll, Reine Brynolfsson, Björn Kjellman, Johannes Bah Kuhnke, Gizem Erdogan and Björn Mosten, who makes his acting debut.
The eight part series features Sofie (Ida Engvoll), a career driven consultant and married mother of two. When Sofie gets an assignment to modernize an old publishing house she meets young IT tech Max (Björn Mosten), and an unexpected flirtatious game begins. Sofie and Max secretly challenge each other to do things that question societal norms. It starts innocently enough, but as the game gets more and more daring the consequences grow beyond proportions.
"I hope 'Love & Anarchy' becomes cheeky, funny and will give a new perspective on our society. To me, the story is a paradox taking place within and around my character Sofie in a society that isn’t fully embracing the human being. It will be an interesting and challenging journey for me in terms of class, psyche and body - and I am very much looking forward to jumping on it together with Lisa Langseth, FLX and Netflix. Love is one of my greatest interests and combined with anarchy this is my dream role!," says Ida Engvoll.
