Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn has completed filming a six-part noir series Copenhagen Cowboy for Netflix.

Copenhagen Cowboy marks Winding Refn’s first production in his native Denmark in 15 years. He is best known for the Pusher trilogy (1996-2005), Bronson (2008), Rise of Valhalla (2009), Conduct (2011), Only God forgives (2013), The neon demon (2016), and the series Too old to die young (2019).

“With Copenhagen Cowboy, I’m going back to my past to shape my future by creating a series, an extension of my ever-evolving alter-egos, now in the form of my young heroine, Miu,” Winding Refn said.

He hinted that he would work with the streamer on future projects. “Collaborating with Netflix and bringing this show to life has been an absolutely wonderful experience on every level. I see them not only as my partners for many future adventures to come, but also as my friends. The new term was born: Netflix Winding Refn.

Copenhagen Cowboy also stars Lola Corfixen and Zlatko Buric, with additional cast including Andreas Lykke Jørgensen, Jason Hendil-Forssell, Li Ii Zhang, Dragana Milutinovic, Mikael Bertelsen and Mads Brügger.

The series is produced by Lene Børglum and Christina Erritzøe through NWR Originals.
