- ‘Honour’ premieres on Viaplay in autumn 2019

The latest original production from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) is ‘Honour’. Created by a stellar line-up of top Swedish talents, the eight-part crime thriller series will premiere across the Nordic region in autumn 2019 exclusively on NENT Group’s streaming service Viaplay.
Defending the victims of injustice is more than a job for the four partners of the Swedish law firm Heder. But can the truth ever come to light when the lawyers themselves are hiding the darkest secret of all?
‘Honour’ (Swedish title: ‘Heder’) stars Alexandra Rapaport (‘Gåsmamman’), Anja Lundqvist (NENT Group’s ‘ALEX’), Julia Dufvenius (‘Modus’) and Eva Röse (‘Maria Wern’). The series is created by Rapaport, Lundqvist and Dufvenius together with Sofia Helin (‘The Bridge’).
Birgitta Wännström (‘Maria Wern’; ‘Gåsmamman’) produces for Swedish production company Bigster, with Eccho Rights handling international distribution.
Jakob Mejlhede Andersen, NENT Group EVP and Head of Content: “This has been a record-breaking year so far for NENT Group’s originals. We’ve created, premiered and sold more series than ever before, and productions such as ‘The Lawyer’ and ‘Rig 45’ have smashed viewing records on Viaplay. And we’re just getting started. Our pipeline of unique Nordic stories is unrivalled, and the dark thrills of ‘Honour’ will be a highlight of our slate in 2019.”
