Sørensen’s prodco The Global Ensemble Drama is producing the 6×35’ festive series, with its CEO, Janne Hjeltnes, serving as producer.

The project will also be the first Norwegian production from Netflix to include a trainee as part of the Netflix Nordic talent development programme, which aims to encourage new voices in the screen industries.

Launching globally on the SVoD service in 2022, the series follows a group of people who are stranded at Oslo airport 24 hours before Christmas day. The title and cast will be announced at a later date.
