The director spoke out about his intentions for the project, which is about a psychologist who moves to a small rural town.

“I want Gosta to be a mix of comedy and Dostoyevsky; as funny as possible and as serious as possible.”

Producer Lars Jonsson of Memfis Film added his own excitement about the project as well.

“It’s a joy and honor to produce HBO Nordic’s first Scandinavian original series. HBO is perfect for Gosta’s wilful mix of comedy and drama.”
