WELCOME TO SWEDEN (NBC)
BROADCAST HISTORY:
7/10/14 - ???
STATUS:
currently airing (summer 2015)
TIME SLOT:
sundays from 8:00 PM-9:00 PM EST
CURRENT SEASON:
2 (10 episodes)
DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, March 2015) Bruce Evans (Greg Poehler) and Emma Wiik (Josephine Bornebusch) seem to be the perfect couple. When she makes the life-changing decision to move back to her native Stockholm to accept a prestigious banking job after a year together, she is surprised and thrilled that he agrees to move with her to begin a new life together. Moving halfway around the world with a new love is a huge step and Bruce, with no job, friends or real clue about what he is getting himself into, is quick to face the many unique challenges and culture clashes that living in a foreign land presents. Against the backdrop of a cold, dark and icy Swedish winter, season two follows Bruce and Emma's engagement as they navigate unexpected career transitions, unfamiliar customs and meddlesome relatives. Created by Greg Poehler and based on events in his life, he serves as executive producer along with Amy Poehler, Fredrik Arefalk, Carrie Stein, Josephine Bornebusch, Iréne Lindblad, Lisa Dahlberg and Jessica Ericstam. Johanna Bergenstråhle is producer. "Welcome to Sweden" is a co- production between Entertainment One Television (eOne), Syskon, TV4 and Jarowskij. Last summer, season one of "Welcome to Sweden" averaged a 0.8 rating, 3 share in adults 18-49 and 2.9 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" figures from Nielsen Media Research. In total viewers, the 2.9 million average made "Welcome to Sweden" NBC's second-most-watched summer comedy in the last 10 years (since "Come to Papa" in 2004, trailing over that span only last summer's "Undateable").
