Streaming service ViaPlay’s first foray into original scripted programming, Swedish Dicks, has landed Keanu Reeves to play a supporting role with Peter Stormare.
Swedish Dicks is a comedy set in Los Angeles about Ingmar (Peter Stormare), a former stuntman who is trying to survive as a private investigator. His rather miserable life takes a turn when he meets Axel (Johan Glans), a former and not very successful DJ.
Together they start the private investigation agency Swedish Dicks and tackle some of the strangest cases in LA. When Ingmar’s past catches up with him, they need to solve the murder of Ingmar’s old stuntman friend Tex (Keanu Reeves).
Reeves said in a press release: “I am very happy to be a part of the Swedish Dicks. The script is very good and it’s great to get a chance to work with Peter Stormare again.”
Swedish Dicks will be available across the Nordic region exclusively on the ViaPlay service in late 2016. Stormare can also be seen in the Scandinavian version of the hit Finnish series Black Widows, produced by Moskito for TV3 and ViaPlay
