Morena Baccarin to Star in Sci-Fi Comedy Series for NENT Group's Viaplay

Morena Baccarin to Star in Sci-Fi Comedy Series for Viaplay
"Gotham" and "Deadpool" star Morena Baccarin has joined the cast of "Home Invasion", an upcoming sci-fi comedy series produced by NENT (Nordic Entertainment) Group's Brain Academy ("Conspiracy of Silence").

The six-part English language show focuses on a normal family made up of aliens sent to invade Earth, who are also having second thoughts about their deadly mission. The story's protagonists are two burglars who break into a house and find themselves face to face with an absurd close encounter. The cast also includes Johan Glans ("Swedish Dicks") and John Noble ("Fringe"). Don Bitters ("House of Cards") is set to direct and create the visual effects.

NENT Group intends to release 20 original productions every year. Their English language projects also include the thriller series "Shadowplay" starring Taylor Kitsch and Michael C. Hall, and Brendan Fraser's "The Professionals", which has been described as a loose remake of "Soldiers of Fortune". Viaplay Chief Content Officer Jakob Mejlhede Andersen offers more details about the group's objectives:
"NENT Group has a unique ability to bring together talent from all over the world to tell fascinating stories with a Nordic twist. Unexpected meetings are at the heart of this highly entertaining series, which combines sci-fi with comedy and personal predicaments with cosmic conflict. We’re raising our conceptual and visual ambitions yet again with this show, as NENT Group’s original productions continue to go global in terms of themes, partnerships and audiences.".
