Hulu has picked up the US streaming rights for MTG Viaplay’s ten-part drama Veni Vidi Vici, which stars Thomas Bo Larsen (Follow The Money) as a struggling movie director who decides to take a job in the adult entertainment industry.
Karsten Daugaard (Thomas Bo Larsen) is a Danish film director going through a rough patch. His films are getting bad reviews, and at home he is dominated by his wife Jonna (Livia Millhagen).
Reluctantly accepting his fate, Karsten accepts a real job at his father-in-law’s (Michael Segerström) organic pig farm. However, he is eventually saved by old friend and producer Vincent (Rafael Edholm) who offers him a way back into the film industry… as a porn director.
However, Daugaard soon comes face to face with the harsh realities of the porn industry and is forced into a double life that endangers his whole family.
Jakob Mejlhede, MTG EVP and Head of Programming and Content Development, said: “It was clear from the start that the combination of a powerful script, great cast and the imaginative production and direction of these gifted storytellers would be a hit. And so it has proved.”
“It is wonderful to see the series make its way onto the international stage and we hope that Hulu customers will enjoy ‘Veni Vidi Vici’ as much as our Viaplay subscribers have.”
Veni Vidi Vici will be available on Hulu from December 2017.
