NBC Cancels Poehler-Led Comedy WELCOME TO SWEDEN
NBC has canceled WELCOME TO SWEDEN just two weeks into the show's sophomore season. The comedy, starring Greg Poehler, is executive produced by his sister Amy, among others. The network has revealed that it will air "Hollywood Game Night" in its time slot this Sunday. It remains unclear when the show's remaining episodes will air.
About the show:
Bruce Evans (Greg Poehler) and Emma Wiik (Josephine Bornebusch, Swedish hit drama "Solsidan") seem to be the perfect couple. He's a former money manager to the stars, living his life in New York with Emma, the sweet woman from Sweden who he loves and adores. She is the rare combination of intelligent, funny, kind and beautiful, who believes she has finally found her true soul mate. So when she makes the life-changing decision to move back to her native Stockholm to accept a prestigious banking job after a year together, she is surprised and thrilled that he agrees to move with her to begin a new life together.Moving halfway around the world with a new love is a huge step and Bruce, with no job, friends or real clue about what he is getting himself into, is quick to face the many unique challenges and culture clashes that living in a foreign land presents. Most notably, how to win over Emma's strange and very Swedish family, which includes her parents, Viveka (Lena Olin, "Chocolat") and Birger (Claes Månsson, "Heartbreak Hotel"); Gustav (Christopher Wagelin, "Easy Money"), Emma's younger brother and 33-year-old mega-slacker who can do no wrong in his mother's eyes; and Bengt (Per Svensson, "Death of a Pilgrim"), Birger's younger brother and an American-adoring rockabilly type that seems to live his life through Stateside movies.
