Nicolas Winding Refn Returns Home With Copenhagen Cowboy

Netflix has announced Copenhagen Cowboy, a six-part neon-drenched noir created and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher) which follows young heroine Miu (Angela Bundalovic) as she travels through Copenhagen’s criminal netherworld.

The cast also includes Lola Corfixen, Zlatko Buric, Andreas Lykke Jørgensen, Jason Hendil-Forssell, Li Ii Zhang, Dragana Milutinovic, Mikael Bertelsen and Mads Brügger.

Director, Nicolas Winding Refn, said: “With Copenhagen Cowboy, I am returning to my past to shape my future by creating a series, an expansion of my constantly evolving alter-egos, now in the form of my young heroine, Miu.”

“Collaborating with Netflix and bringing this show to life has been an absolutely wonderful experience on all levels. I not only perceive them as my partners with many future adventures to come, but also as my friends. The new term has been born: Netflix Winding Refn.”

Netflix Director Of Nordic Original Series, Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, added: “We are absolutely thrilled to to announce that we have partnered up with Nicolas Winding Refn… and are bringing him back to Denmark to produce a local Danish show after more than 15 years abroad. Nicolas is a creative force and is such a fascinating and unpredictable filmmaker.”

Copenhagen Cowboy is slated to launch globally on Netflix later this year.
