Netflix is expanding its relationship with Jon Iver Helgaker and Jonas Torgersen with a new animated comedy series Captain Fall.
Helgaker and Torgersen are the creators behind the Norwegian comedy series NORSEMEN which premiered its third on Netflix earlier this month — the creative pairs’ next project with Netflix will follow Jonathan Fall, a naive warm-hearted ship captain who finds himself unknowingly the captain of a smuggling ship. Netflix has ordered 20 episodes of the series that will be released in two parts.
Jon Iver Helgaker and Jonas Torgersen will serve as creators, showrunners, and executive producers on the series. Joel Trussell (Electric City, Pickle and Peanut ) will serve as executive producer.
Joel Trussell is the under-the-radar move here, the former Pickle and Peanut creator will make sure Captain Fall gets us something funny as hell.
