Svensk Filmindustri to develop new series through its production company Tre Vänner.
Advokaten is a collaboration between screenwriters Hans Rosenfeldt, who is behind the international hit series Bron and Michael Hjorth, creator of Den Fördömde, together with Jens Lapidus, defense attorney and author of the Easy Money trilogy.
The series takes the viewers to the courtroom and behind the scenes of Stockholm’s criminal world. We meet upcoming lawyer Frank, who is working on his biggest case yet when he discovers dark parallels between his own family and Stockholm’s most dangerous criminal organizations.
- To do this kind of TV series is the ultimate kickback for someone who loves stories about human nature. The collaboration on Advokaten has already been extremely rewarding, says Jens Lapidus.
- We are extremely pleased to be working with Hans, Michael and Jens. It is a very interesting constellation and I am sure that Advokaten will be a very exciting and great project, says Jon Nohrstedt, producer of the show from Tre Vänner.
Advokaten is a ten episode thriller series with production scheduled to start in 2015. The series is developed in collaboration with TV4.
