I am composing the music for the TV-series Dystopia, a VIAPLAY original TV-series produced by Jarowskij.
It is currently being filmed in central Sweden.
Dystopia is a Swedish horror series that features rising stars Madeleine Martin, Johan Hafezi, Erik Bolin and Happy Jankell. . It is scheduled for premiere on Viaplay in 2021.
From the press release:
“The next original production from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), the Nordic region’s leading streaming company, is Swedish horror series `Dystopia’. A chilling tale of supernatural powers unleashed during a post-apocalyptic Nordic LARP inside a factory in the Swedish forests, `Dystopia’ features a star cast of new Nordic talents and will premiere exclusively across the region on NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service in 2021.
For a group of thrill-seeking young Swedes, an abandoned Cold War-era factory deep in the wilderness seems the ideal setting for a live roleplay designed to push them to their physical and mental limits. But the game soon turns deadly serious when a series of mysterious events unfold, awakening dark forces.
`Dystopia’ stars Madeleine Martin (NENT Group’s `ALEX’), Johan Hafezi (`Jägarna’), Happy Jankell (NENT Group’s `The Ambassador’), Erik Bolin (NENT Group’s `ALEX’), Johan Hedenberg (`The Perfect Patient’), Lola Zackow (NENT Group’s `Conspiracy of Silence’), Erika Cardenas Hedenberg (`The Restaurant’), Maja Rung (NENT Group’s `Honour’) and Christian Svensson (`24′).
The eight-part production is based on an idea by director Richard Jarnhed and producer Lotta Westberg, both of whom worked on NENT Group’s successful `Black Lake’ original series.”
I am really looking forward to compose the music for Dystopia. Director Richard Jarnhed mentions films and TV-series like “Chernobyl”, “Black Lake season 1″, Jacobs Ladder”, “Black Swan”, “Alien” and “Rosemary’s Baby” as some of the inspiration.
