Sweden orders Nurses for local version

Sweden’s leading commercial broadcaster TV4 has ordered a local adaptation of hit Finnish drama Nurses from Bob Film. TV4 has commissioned two seasons of ten episodes, which will be called Syrror (Sisters). The first series will be broadcast later this year.

“Finally - TV4’s first medical drama! This is a story about all the big and difficult questions: life, death, love and pain. It’s a world that we sincerely hope will move our audience to both tears and laughter, and that Syrror will be nearly addictive to its viewers”, says Josefine Tengblad, head of drama at TV4 and C More.

Eccho Rights represents the Swedish version of the show and has already presold it to TV2 in Norway and DR in Denmark.

Last year, the distributor sold the rights for a UK remake to DLT and licenced the first two Finnish seasons to ProsiebenSat1, making Nurses the first Nordic series ever to air on a commercial broadcaster in Germany.
