NBC's 'Welcome to Sweden' Casts Neve Campbell in Recurring Role
Scream star Neve Campbell has boarded NBC's Welcome to Sweden in a recurring role.
The four-episode arc will see Campbell play Diane, an American transferred to Stockholm to work as head of marketing at a bank. The half-hour comedy, now shooting its 10-episode second season, airs on NBC, TV4 in Sweden and Bell Media in Canada.
