Netflix has announced Baby Fever, a six-part Danish comedy drama about fertility treatment, choices, parenthood and love, starring Josephine Park as a fertility doctor.
When Nana (Josephine Park) inseminates herself with her ex-boyfriend’s sperm whilst drunk, she starts a chain reaction of catastrophes. This move leads to pregnancy and Nana must figure out how to explain her condition and win back her ex-boyfriend and long-lost love. The problem is that he doesn’t seem interested in getting back together.
This secret pregnancy allows Nana to see her clients in a different light but, as her lies grow bigger, it gets harder and harder for her to navigate them. Now, for the first time in her life, Nana has to tell the truth and reveal a secret that could ultimately cost her everything.
The cast also includes Olivia Joof Lewerissa (DNA), Simon Sears (Ride Upon The Storm), Mikael Birkkjær (Borgen), Tammi Øst (A Perfectly Normal Family), Thomas Levin (Borgen), Jesper Ole Feit Andersen (The Chestnut Man), Amelia Høy (Below The Surface), Anne Sofie Wanstrup (Persona Non Grata) and Lisa Carlehed (The Emigrants).
Series creators, Amalie Næsby Fick and Nikolaj Feifer, said: “Baby Fever is the personal, comic, hard, surprising story about fertility treatment that we ourselves have lacked. Being in fertility treatment is insanely tough. We know that because we’ve been through it ourselves.”
“But it can also be an experience of hope and joy and laughter, it can throw one around in so many different emotions in such a short time. That’s why we want to make a series where the drama and the comedy always exist together, because that’s our experience of a fertility process.”
Baby Fever has already begun filming and is slated to premiere globally on Netflix later in 2022.
