Netflix today announced that their next original series Snabba Cash, based on the Swedish film series, from screenwriter Oskar Söderlund and bestselling author Jens Lapidus.
The new Netflix original series is set in Stockholm ten years after the events depicted in the Snabba Cash feature film trilogy. It is a buzzing environment where the craving for status and money is stronger than ever. The entrepreneurial jet set as well as the criminal world has become even more brutal, chaotic and ruthless. When these two worlds collide, loyalty, friendships and business partners will all be tested in the never-ending quest for easy money.
“I have been waiting for an opportunity to continue with Snabba Cash. The stories are still epic but also depict our time in an unfiltered light. It will be amazing”, says Jens Lapidus.
Tesha Crawford, Director International Originals Northern Europe: ”We are happy to announce this new Swedish series and to bring the world from these much loved movies back to life in a fresh and exciting way. To do this, we are fortunate to work with some amazing Swedish creatives. We are excited about working with Oskar and Jens and their vision for this new chapter of Snabba Cash. With SF Studios onboard we also have an incredibly strong local partner.”
