Prime Video has greenlit Hell of a Date (working title), its first Swedish action series.
Production is underway in Stockholm, with Denmark’s Milad Avaz directing and Erik “Jerka” Johansson (Länge leve Bonusfamiljen), Hanna Alström (Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The Crown), Adam Pålsson (Innan vi dör), Alba August (Unga Astrid), Valter Skarsgård (Beck) and Nina Zanjani (Älska mig) starring.
Hell of a Date is billed as a “thrilling, action-packed roller coaster set in the world of Swedish media and politics,” and a “gripping, funny and loving story that has something important to say at its core: how we humans embrace change.”

The action is set to a backdrop of Sweden facing primitive power outages and ominous predictions about the coming winter. Reluctant widower Arthur (Johansson) gets recruited to help his colleague, star journalist Cristina (Zanjani), who dares to question the mainstream narrative. Feeling cornered by the police and other powers, he becomes her partner-in-crime, in the craziest, most hazardous day of his life — the only problem being he has a date with Mille (Alström), and as not to arouse any suspicion, it needs to happen as planned.
The series is produced by Nordisk Film-owned Drive Studios and written by director Avaz, Jacob Katz Hansen and Anna Neye. Maj-Britt Landin serves as executive producer and Christian Potalivo as producer.
The full cast will be announced at a later date and a 2024 launch date has been penciled in for the four-part series.
Prime Video Sweden‘s other original series include Bingo & Julia, Parneviks All In!, Ägd av Danny and Good Luck Guys.
