- Finnish comedy drama series launching alongside season six of hit crime drama Bosch
Red Arrow Studios International is launching quirky comedy drama Californian Commando (10 x 24’) at MIPTV 2020, alongside season six of the critically acclaimed crime drama Bosch (S6: 10 x 45’, total episodes: 60 x 45’).
Produced by Fire Monkey Productions for Elisa Viihde (Finland), Perfect Commando is a fish-out-of-water comedy series, which sees a privileged young American forced to join the Finnish army. It stars Emmy Award-nominee and social media sensation, Kian Lawley.
In Perfect Commando, Van Hamilton’s first trip to Finland gets off to a bad start the moment he steps off the plane. The 23-year-old rich kid from California was expecting a five-star holiday with his girlfriend Rachel. Instead he is shot with a stun-gun at the airport by Military Police, then dragged unconscious to an army barracks in the middle of nowhere.
Unfortunately for Van, this isn’t a case of mistaken identity. His dual American-Finnish citizenship means he’s forced to do military service. To make things worse, his parents knew this would happen; they’re hoping the army will turn their spoiled son into a responsible adult.
Now, whether he likes it or not, Van is going to have to train to be a commando!
Red Arrow Studios International will also be bringing season six of critically acclaimed crime drama, Bosch to MIPTV.Produced by Fabrik Entertainment, a Red Arrow Studios company, for Amazon Studios, Bosch is the longest-running Prime Original. The series is based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novels and stars Titus Welliver (‘Lost’) as homicide Detective Harry Bosch.
