Chosen — new Danish sci fi series from Netflix announced

Posted Filed under

Netflix had announced a new Danish Netflix Original series Chosen. The six part series is created by Christian Potalivo and Jannik Tai Mosholt (pictured) — the acclaimed duo behind one of the most watched non-English-language series at Netflix, The Rain.

Emma has always felt different from anyone else in Middelbo — a small Danish town that became world famous when it was said that a meteor entered the atmosphere and crashed into it 17 years earlier. Now, Middelbo is no longer what it has been, and the question is whether it has ever been what it pretends to be at all? When Emma accidentally discovers that the whole story of the meteor is a lie, a dangerous and improbable truth about the sleepy town reveals itself — something that is far more perilous and incredible than she could have ever imagined. Was it a meteor that hit the little town 17 years ago or was it something far more powerful? With this newly discovered realization Emma is forced to realize that she is on her own and that friends and society will not save her in a time of life where she needs them the most.

Executive Producers and Creators Christian Potalivo and Jannik Tai Mosholt:

We have always been fascinated by people’s fear of the unknown and the strange. It is a powerful driving force in our humanity, and often we as humans are more concerned about what separates us than what actually binds us together, which served as inspiration for this show. We have a strong passion to shed light on what it is that creates young adults’ identities – the struggle with love and hope, the eternal doubt and search for who you are and what is needed to fit in and feel that you belong.”

The Netflix announcement says chosen is expected to commence filming this year.
