Nice Drama Announces US Project Andersonville

Nice Drama (Midnight Sun) has revealed to Variety that its first English language drama, Andersonville, is set to begin production in 2018.

Created by Henrik Jansson-Schweizer and Morgan Jensen (Thicker than Water), Andersonville is set in Chicago’s Swede Town 1910, in the middle of its immigration boom, just before the arrival of Al Capone.

The story focuses on the Ericson family, three Swedish siblings who migrated to Chicago in search of the American dream.

Jansson-Schweizer told Variety: “It’s a drama about immigrants achieving success, prosperity and identity in a foreign country. The universal themes have more to do with the human condition, and the nature of society where law, political interests and cultures clashes.”
