The Lawyer follows the descent of Swedish defence lawyer Frank Nordling into the Copenhagen underworld after he discovers that the firm’s most important client is responsible for the murder of his parents.

The show is being produced by SF Studios Production, with Studio Canal
handling international distribution.

It will premiere exclusively on Viaplay across the Nordic region and on TV3 in Denmark and Sweden in the autumn and stars Alexander Karim (Tyrant).

Jakob Mejlhede, MTG’s exec VP and head of programming and content development, said: “We are very glad to work with the most talented producers and actors on The Lawyer as MTG continues our journey to become the Nordic region’s leading producer of original content.”

Oscar-nominated producer Nicklas Wikström Nicastro: “We’ve brought together fantastic talents and now we’re going to create something truly special. Working with Viaplay and TV3 for the first time is inspiring.”

The Lawyer has been commissioned by MTG Studios, joining recent originals such as political thriller Embassy Down, Nordic drama series Veni Vidi Vici and LA-based comedy drama Swedish Dicks.
