The Yellow Affair brings BETWEEN US series to Mipcom
Maniac writer Ole Marius Araldsen and Beforeigners’ actor Nicolai Cleve Broch are co-creators of the Norwegian/Danish dramedy.
The 8x42’ series Between Us (formerly Love Story) is produced by Anagram Norway’s Anne Kolbjørnsen (Kieler Street, Maniac, Lilyhammer) for TV2 Norway and TV2 Denmark, with co-financing from IPR.VC and support from Nordisk Film & TV Fond.
The writing team working with Araldsen includes Marie Hafting (Young & Promising), Patrik Syversen (Kieler Street), Jesper Sund, Anna Neye and Tone Mygind Rostbøll (My Auntie’s Tall Tales).
The series is a warm relationship drama about two couples, telling the story from each of their four perspectives, examining their trust and mistrust in each other, and how even minuscule details end up having bigger consequences in their lives. Norwegian and Danish talents in the title roles are Nicolai Cleve Broch (Beforeigners, Acquitted, Kieler Street), Agnes Kittelsen (Exit, Kon Tiki, Happy, Happy), Lærke Winther (Those Who Kill, Dicte), and Johannes Nymark (Moonfire). Co-directors are Eigil Langmark (Hæsjtægg) and Charlotte Sachs Bostrup (Something’s Rockin’).
The Yellow Affair’s CEO Karoliina Dwyer said she and her colleagues immediately “fell in love” with the project as soon as it was pitched to them. “Producers Anne Kolbjørnsen and Ole Marius Araldsen have a great eye for material and an impeccable track record. We have already received very positive feedback from key industry players for broadcast, streaming, and remake rights. We have no doubt that this contemporary and easily-relatable story with well-balanced drama and humour will find its audience worldwide,” notes Dwyer.
Between Us is set to premiere on TV2 Norway and TV2 Denmark early November 2019.
Other scripted series on The Yellow Affair’s MIPCOM slate include SVT’s award-winning mini-series Sisters 1968 produced by Anagram Sweden, and the Finnish political thriller The Activists produced by Helsinki-filmi for Yle.
