Watch First U.S. Trailer for Amy and Greg Poehler’s WELCOME TO SWEDEN
By Jake Kroeger on April 12, 2014
Amy Poehler and her brother Greg Poehler might have already have an international sitcom hit on their hands and it has yet to hit stateside. Of course, I’m talking about their series Welcome To Sweden, which has already gotten renewed for a second at Sweden’s TV4. It’s slated for a U.S. premiere of its first season on July 10th at 9 PM on NBC and it should be a good sign for what’s coming with a renewal overseas.
With all of that in mind, the first U.S. trailer has just dropped and is enticing with its cameos alone, featuring Will Ferrell speaking Swedish, Gene Simmons of KISS, and America’s dead pan sweetheart Aubrey Plaza.
If this series becomes a hit in the States, it would be a rare instance where an original television show in another country simply just played on a Big Four broadcast network in the U.S. without it being adapted (i.e., The Office, etc.).
