“Hacker” and “Clone” were the most buzzed-about Norwegian series projects pitched at a Drama Series Days’ Focus on Norway.

Produced by Mer film, “Clone” is a sci-fi sitcom set in 2041 and exploring an unravelling marriage. It follows Fredrik and Eva, a married couple who are the only passengers on board of a small spaceship which is returning to Earth and carrying some samples from Mars. Fredrik finds out he is infected by a virus and thus not allowed to return home, so he clones himself in the ship’s 3D printer. From that moment an intense and awkward ménage-a-trios drama plays out between Eva, Fredrik and his clone.

Development - Clone - Ole - Giæver - Writer/director

Now in development, “Clone” was created and written by Ole Giæver, the writer/director of the critically acclaimed film “Out of Nature” and “Tommy.”

“Hacker” follows Mia, a 34-year-old Norwegian ex-climbing champion who dropped out of university after she lost her fiancé in Oslo’s 2011 Government Quarter terror attack. Working as a bike courier, Mia is given a mysterious package containing a hidden hard-drive to deliver. Unable to do so, she gets embroiled in a nightmarish conspiracy. The thriller was created and written by Andres J. Riiser (Isola ). Produced by Motlys, the series is also in development.
