PØRNI

PØRNI is a dramedy about a generous and altruistic everyday hero. Pørni is short for Pernille, she has tons of empathy, charm, and integrity. She is entertaining, compassionate, funny, quirky, and warm. She freaks out sometimes, but still manages to land on her feet, at least on one of them. PØRNI is a person you wish you had as a mother and friend.

EXIT II

They are multimillionaires and fathers of young children, in stark contrast to a need for blind violence, drugs and sex and with a total disrespect for others and the idea of a social welfare model. EXITis a groundbreaking drama series with a unique insight into the shadow side of the newly rich Norway. Where season 1 mirrored the excess, season 2 will dig deep down into stock trading corruption.
