Caliphate Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online

Creator: Wilhelm Behrman

Stars: Gizem Erdogan, Amed Bozan, Aliette Opheim

Scandinavian series exploring crime, family drama and terrorism, both foreign and domestic, are among the nominees for the Nordic Drama series outstanding writing honor, one of Scandinavia’s top TV awards.

The award, handed out by pan-Scandinavian funding group the Nordisk Film & TV Fond, picks the best TV writing from across the region, nominating writing from a series from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, respectively.

This year’s nominees include Norway’s Sara Johnsen for her script for July 22, a NRK drama based on the real-life 2011 terrorist attack, in which a Norwegian far-right extremist killed some 77 people; Wilhelm Behrman and Niklas Rockström for Swedish thriller Caliphate, about five women lured into joining an Islamic terrorist group; Dorthe Høgh and Ida Maria Rydén for the Danish crime drama When the Dust Settles; Matti Laine for Finnish police series The Paradise; and Nanna Kristín Magnúsdóttir for her script to Icelandic series Happily Never After, about a couples counselor who discovers her own husband is having an affair.

Happily Never After premiered on Icelandic network RÚV earlier this year. All the other nominated series will premiere in 2020.

All five have already been picked up for international sales, with REInvent Studios handling Happily Never After, Digital Rights Group selling July 22, Endemol Shine International doing world sales for Caliphate, Mediapro Studio Distribution selling The Paradise internationally and DR Sales handling When the Dust Settles, which it produced for its home channel DR.

The first episode of all five nominated series will be screened as part of the TV Drama Vision section of Sweden’s Göteborg Film Festival next month. The winning show will be announced in Göteborg on Jan. 29, 2020 during the Nordisk Film & TV Fond’s 30th anniversary celebrations.

The 43rd Göteborg Film Festival runs from Jan. 24 to Feb. 3, 2020 and the TV Drama Vision section runs Jan. 29-30.

Introducing Caliphate, the gripping eight-episode Netflix series which shows three very different people as they’re entangled in an ISIS terror attack.

It’s set to follow a struggling mother, a spirited student and an ambitious cop as each of their lives gets tangled in the drama and chaos, and look at a horrific act of terror from each and every terrifying angle.

Flitting between Syria and Sweden, the drama will take a look at life at the centre of a terrorist organisation, and will highlight just how easily people are radicalised.

And judging by the reaction on social media, it’s not one to miss.

Taking to social media after binge-watching it all, one person said: “Caliphate on Netflix is sooooo gooooood”.

While another agreed, suggesting: “Self isolate with #caliphate @NetflixUK”.

A third chipped in: “The action and tension had me on tender hooks throughout (sic)”.

As a fourth penned: “Like other Swedish and Scandinavian dramas, it has a smooth, saturating darkness to it that keeps you drawn in, even when you want to look away. Reviting. #Kalifat #CaliphateNetflix”.

Created by Wilhelm Behrman and Niklas Rockström, the series stars Gizemm Erdogan as Pervin (wife of an IS member) Aliette Opheim as Fatima (a SÄPO agent) and Nora Rios as teenager Sulle (who becomes fascinated by the dark world of the Islamic State).

It was originally made in Swedish, but is showing on Netflix with English dubbed over it so there’s nothing to stop you enjoying the drama, too.

The series officially landed on Netflix yesterday, so you’ve just about got time to start watching it before the spoilers land online.

By the look of things, this is going to be everyone’s self-isolation binge soon enough.
