Launching tonight on Sweden’s TV4 is the channel’s first original English-language show. Weirdly, it’s made by and stars Greg Poehler and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), and is a semi-autobiographical story about a New York accountant who moves to Sweden to be with his girlfriend. Amy Poehler is his client.
I’ve no idea if this is essentially Sweden’s response to Norway’s Lillyhammer, but it’s happening, all the same. Here’s a trailer. Or two.
