Netflix Orders Ragnarok From Borgen Creator
Netflix has ordered six-part Norwegian original Ragnarok from Adam Price, the award winning creator and writer behind Borgen and Ride Upon The Storm (Herrens veje).
Ragnarok is a modern day coming of age drama rooted in Norse mythology set against the backdrop of a high school in the small fictional town of Edda, in the middle of the vast Norwegian countryside.
Adam Price said: “We believe that the Nordics have their own voice when it comes to storytelling, and we would like to help prove that with this large-scale series written by a Nordic team with writers from Norway, Sweden and Denmark.”
“The series has at its core an issue that not only people in the Nordics but people all over the world in an increasing degree are forced to respond to; our climate, which has in recent years undergone considerable changes.”
“The ice caps are melting at a rate no one had anticipated. We go through long periods of drought. The winters are too warm… The world is changing, and some might claim that we’re headed towards a new Ragnarok. Unless someone intervenes in time…”
