The series from MTG Studios, the Nordic producers of the Keanu Reeves-starring 'Swedish Dicks,' has been picked up by DRG.

Veni Vidi Vici, the drama series set in the world of adult entertainment from Swedish banner MTG Studios, has been picked up by DRG, the U.K.-based worldwide content distributor. 

The 10-part show — which will premiere exclusively on MTG Studio's own Nordic video streaming service Viaplay later this month — follows a struggling Danish art house director forced to work in the porn industry, and was part of the MIPDrama Screenings in Cannes. 

The deal with DRG marks the latest international move for MTG Studios, which has more than 50 projects in the pipeline and last year saw Lionsgate pick up its Keanu Reeves-starring comedy series Swedish Dicks.

"Veni Vidi Vici has all the ingredients required to capture the attention of an international audience — intensity, complexity and fantastic performances from an all-star cast," said Jeremy Fox, CEO of DRG, which shares the same owner as MTG Studios, the Modern Times Group. "The Nordic region is an amazing creative hub, and this series is a great example of a local production with truly global potential."

Other upcoming commissions from MTG Studios include drama The Lawyer, political thriller Embassy Down, Nordic noir Hassel, F1 biopic SuperSwede and the second season of Swedish Dicks.
