Netflix has ordered eight part Swedish dramedy Love & Anarchy from FLX, the production company behind Quicksand. The series is created by acclaimed film maker Lisa Langseth (Euphoria) who is set to direct and will share writing credits with Alex Haridi (Real Humans).
Love & Anarchy tells the story of Sofie, a career driven consultant and married mother of two. When tasked with modernising an old publishing house she meets young IT tech Max, and enters into an unexpected flirting game.
Sofie and Max begin to secretly challenge each other to do things that question modern day life. It starts innocently enough, but as the game gets more and more daring the consequences grow beyond all proportion.
Lisa Langseth said: “This has been my dream project for a long time. After working with this story alone in my basement I am so immensely glad to see it present itself together with a fantastic team. I have the best job in the world.”
Tesha Crawford, Director of Netflix Originals Northern Europe, said: “We instantly fell in love with this female led project. Not only does the story follows a strong female character, we are also happy to team up with the talented Lisa Langseth and continue the great collaboration with FLX.”
