Hulu Nabs Exclusive Streaming Rights to ‘Veni Vidi Vici’

Hulu has acquired exclusive streaming rights to Swedish comedy series “Veni Vidi Vici,” the second original scripted drama commissioned by MTG’s Nordic streaming service Viaplay.

“Veni Vidi Vici” is set to stream on Hulu in December. The series, produced by Rafael Edholm, originally premiered on Viaplay in April and world premiered at this year’s MIPDrama Screenings at Cannes-set showcase MipTV.

Written by Rafael Edholm and Santiago Gil (‘Love is a Drug’), the 10-part drama series revolves around a struggling Danish film director Karstan Daugaard who decides to take a job in the adult entertainment industry. Played by award winning actor Thomas Bo Larsen (“The Celebration”), the filmmaker soon comes face to face with the harsh realities of the porn industry and is forced into a double life that endangers his whole family.

Nordic talent such as Rafael Edholm (“Mörkt vatten”), Livia Millhagen (“Buss till Italien”), Michael Segerström (“Darling”) and Canadian actor Michael Wincott (“24: Live Another Day”) round up the series’s cast.

“MTG is all about great storytelling and this fantastic series is the latest in a stream of high quality original productions in which we are investing,” said Jørgen Madsen Lindemann, MTG president and CEO.

The exec said “Veni Vidi Vici” is “further proof that Nordic drama travels really well.” The series garnered “big audiences” in the Nordics, pointed out Lindemann.

Viaplay has over 50 original scripted drama projects in the pipeline. The service’s first original drama, “Swedish Dicks,” premiered on the U.S. network Pop TV in August.

The streamer’s most recent original shows include geopolitical thriller “Occupied,” Nordic noir “Hassel,” and biopic “SuperSwede” about the life of Formula 1 driver Ronnie Peterson.

Upcoming Viaplay-commissioned shows include political thrillers “Conspiracy of Silence” and “Embassy Down’,” dramas “Alex’ and “The Lawyer,” among other series.
