Netflix has announced the start of production on Miso Film’s “The Rain,” the streaming giant’s first Danish original series which is both penned and co-created by Jannik Tai Mosholt (“Borgen”).
Set six years after a devastating biological catastrophe wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia, two siblings join a group of young survivors and set out to find out whether a new world has begun somewhere else.
Set free from the rules of civilized society, each of the young members of the group has the freedom to be who they want to be, but they all struggle with their own selves. Mikkel Boe Følsggard, Alba August, Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen and Lars Simonsen lead the cast.
Mosholt will serve as showrunner alongside Christian Potalivo (“The New Tenants”). Jonas Allen and Peter Bose will also executive produce the series which will be shot in Denmark and Sweden and will premiere in 2018.
