Nicolas Winding Refn is heading to Netflix for new series Copenhagen Cowboy.
The neon-noir thriller will see the Pusher, Drive and Neon Demon director return to Denmark for a “poetic, thrill-inducing” five into the titular city’s criminal underworld.
Refn, who previously made his TV debut with Too Old to Die Young for Amazon Prime Video, has directed the series and co-written it with Sara Isabella Jønsson, Johanne Algren and Mona Masri, with Magnus Nordenhof Jøncknserving as DoP and Cliff Martinez, Peter Peter and Julian Winding providing the soundtrack.
The six-part series follows a young heroine, Miu (Angela Bundalovic) who travels through Copenhagen’s criminal netherworld. The series co-stars Lola Corfixen, Zlatko Buric, Andreas Lykke Jørgensen, Jason Hendil-Forssell, Li Ii Zhang, Dragana Milutinovic, Mikael Bertelsen and Mads Brügger.
Refn says: “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.”
Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, director of Nordic Original Series at Netflix, adds: “We are absolutely thrilled to finally be able to announce that we have partnered up with Nicolas Winding Refn, one of Denmark’s most acclaimed filmmakers, 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. We can’t wait to bring Copenhagen Cowboy to the world.”
Production has wrapped on the series and it will be released globally on Netflix later this year.
