Anders TangenCEO/Producer at Viafilm
For over 25 years, Anders Tangen has passionately produced award-winning drama series, feature films, documentaries and short stories. Anders’ signature TV series, Lilyhammer, Norsemen and Magnus are hailed by audiences worldwide, and his multi-awarded dramedy series, DAG, received acclaim from both critics and viewers across Europe. Additionally, many of Anders’ productions have been invited to A-list festivals.
Through his company, Viafilm (Los Angeles / Oslo), Anders continually pushes at the industry boundaries. The Netflix/NRK Viking dramedy, Norsemen (aka Vikingane), is the first TV series to have been shot and released in two languages (Norwegian & English). Norsemen is quickly becoming an international sensation; season 3 shoots August 2019.
Continuing with this successful, multi-language model, Viafilm recorded in both English and Norwegian the real-time, romantic dramedy series, One Night (2018/19 release), and the upcoming supernatural-mystery-drama, Magnus (filming Jan. 2018). This model hops over the remake system, and introduces outstanding Scandinavian talent to the rest of the world.
Essential to Viafilm’s success is Anders’ international network. Anders enjoys collaborating with many of the best people in the industry hailing from N. & S. America, Scandinavia and Europe. This is owed to Anders’ diligent drive to develop outstanding concepts with visually excelling production value and highly engaging stories.
The realization of a great idea demands courage, determination and sweat.
