We are very excited to announce that TrustNordisk, Nordisk Film Production and Nordisk Film Distribution have joined forces on the upcoming hyped Norwegian TV-series TWIN, created by Kristofer Hivju and Kristoffer Metcalfe.
Kristoffer Hivju, most famously known for his role as Tormund Giantsbane in HBO´s GAME OF THRONES, came up with the idea for TWIN along with the multitalented Kristoffer Metcalfe and writer Gisle Norman Melhus; together, the three of them have managed to create one of the most anticipated Nordic TV-series this year.
Besides Hivju being one of the series creators, he also stars in the main lead. The rest of the cast is yet to be announced.
TWIN is a drama set in Lofoten, Norway. Erik, a surfer-bum who hasn´t seen his identical twin Adam, a successful businessman with a picture-perfect family, for 17 years. When Erik loses everything, he reaches out to Adam, only to be rejected. A quarrel breaks out between them and Ingrid, Adam´s wife, accidentally kill Adam. To cover the crime and to save his brother´s family, Erik takes over Adam´s identity.
