Newen sees Northern Lights

French distributor Newen Distribution has boarded Danish outfit Nimbus Film’s new drama Northern Lights.

The 10×43’ show has been created by Mikkel Bak Sørensen and Christoffer Örnfelt, who respectively co-created and co-wrote Scandi drama Greyzone. It focuses on the aftermath of a giant solar storm that impacts Europe.

Produced by The Bridge prodco Nimbus Film for Modern Times Group-owned Nordic streamer Viaplay, Northern Lights is directed by Natasha Arthy (The Killing).

Marking the first development deal between Newen Group-owned Newen Distribution and Nimbus, it strengthens the French firm’s strategy of building relationships with producers embarking on international projects.

Newen Distribution MD Malika Abdellaoui said she believed the show, which “mixes hope, fears and human dilemmas,” would “conquer international audiences.”
