Copenhagen Cowboy is a thrill-inducing, neon-drenched noir series set in six episodes about a young heroine, Miu (Angela Bundalovic), who travels through Copenhagen’s criminal netherworld.
Nicolas Winding Refn, creator: “With Copenhagen Cowboy, I am returning to my past to shape my future by creating a series, an expansion of my constantly evolving alter-egos, now in the form of my young heroine, Miu. Collaborating with Netflix and bringing this show to life has been a wonderful experience on all levels. I not only perceive them as my partners with many future adventures to come but also as my friends. The new term has been born: Netflix Winding Refn.”
Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, director of Nordic Original Series at Netflix: “We are thrilled to finally be able to announce that we have partnered up with Nicolas Winding Refn, one of Denmark’s most acclaimed filmmakers, and are bringing him back to Denmark to produce a local Danish show after more than 15 years abroad. Nicolas is a creative force and is such a fascinating and unpredictable filmmaker. We can’t wait to bring Copenhagen Cowboy to the world.”
Copenhagen Cowboy was filmed in Denmark and is composed of six episodes. Production has wrapped, and the series is set to launch globally on Netflix later this year.
The series stars Angela Bundalovic, Lola Corfixen and Zlatko Buric.
Additional cast includes Andreas Lykke Jørgensen, Jason Hendil-Forssell, Li Ii Zhang, Dragana Milutinovic, Mikael Bertelsen and Mads Brügger among others.
