Created by Nicolas Winding Refn (“Pusher” trilogy, Drive, The Neon Demon, Valhalla Rising), Copenhagen Cowboy is a thrill-inducing, neon-drenched noir series about a young heroine, Miu (Angela Bundalovic), who travels through Copenhagen’s criminal netherworld.

Said Nicolas Winding Refn:

“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 an absolutely 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, stated:

“We are absolutely 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.”

The six-episode series stars Angela Bundalovic (The Rain), Lola Corfixen, and Zlatko Buric (1864). The cast also includes Andreas Lykke Jørgensen, Jason Hendil-Forssell, Li Ii Zhang, Dragana Milutinovic (Outlaw), Mikael Bertelsen (Baby Pyramid), and Mads Brügger (Klown), amongst others.

A production of byNWR Originals, Copenhagen Cowboy is created and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. The writers are Sara Isabella Jønsson (Miss Osaka), Johanne Algren (Kamikaze), and Mona Masri (Snabba Cash). Lene Børglum (Too Old to Die Young) and Christina Erritzøe (Solar Dummies) are the producers.

Production has wrapped on the series, which was filmed in Denmark.

Copenhagen Cowboy will launch globally on Netflix later this year.
