Okkupert/Occupied


Watched all 10 episodes on Netflix and found it quite well done if a bit paranoid.

Okkupert (English title: Occupied) is a Norwegian political thriller TV series with 10 episodes that premiered on TV2 on 5 October 2015.[4] Based on an original idea by Jo Nesbø, the series is directed by Erik Skjoldbjærg.[5]

With a budget of kr 90 million (USD 11 million), the series is the most expensive Norwegian production to date, and has been sold to the UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Serbia, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Spain.[6][7] It is also streamed by Netflix in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United Kingdom, India, Canada, Belgium, and the Netherlands.[8][9]

Okkupert depicts a fictional near future in which Russia, with support from the EU, occupies Norway to restore its oil and gas production. This is prompted by a Europe-wide energy crisis caused by Norway's Green Party coming to power and stopping the country's oil and gas production.[10]

Also interesting is RT's coverage.
