A family like us is set in summer in Denmark, where everything seems normal, but is about to be disrupted. The country was gradually evacuated after the floods slowly swept the land. People have to say goodbye to what they love, what they know and who they are. Over the next few years, people scattered in all directions: only houses, schools and empty streets remained. Those who can afford it travel to good countries, while those who are less affluent have to use government-funded programs to move to more challenging places. Family, friends and loved ones will be separated; some will grow hatred and division, while others will increase love and reconciliation. In the blink of an eye, all possessions are worthless, all wealth has changed, and luck favors only a few travelers.

“We are very proud to be collaborating with Thomas Vinterberg on his first collection, Ron Halpern, StudioCanal’s Executive Vice President of Global Production and TV Francoise Guyonnet executive director. “The script by Vinterberg and Bo Hr. Hansen approached this important story with such empathy, talent and vision, while tackling a theme that will resonate strongly with audiences across the globe. It’s encouraging to see such ambition as we look forward to the production with our partners and a cast of rich European talent.

Zentropa Entertainments and TV 2 Denmark developed the series with support from the Danish Film Academy Public Service Fund and the EU Creative European Media Programme.

Producers Sisse Graum Jørgensen and Kasper Dissing added: “Thomas Vinterberg’s new series, Families, like our , is in many ways an ambitious project that is close to our hearts. This is a story of what happens when a nation ceases to exist as a people and its people are forced to leave everything they know and love. Trapped in an uncertain world with no safety net. But it’s also a story of hope and family starting over in a new foreign country. “

StudioCanal’s Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Distribution Anne Cherel will oversee worldwide sales, all rights available excluding France, Benelux and Scandinavia Peninsula, these rights will be handled by TrustNordisk, Germany and CEE.
