Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn has wrapped filming on a six-part noir series Copenhagen Cowboy for Netflix

Angela Bundalovic stars as a young woman who travels through Copenhagen’s criminal netherworld. 

Copenhagen Cowboy marks Winding Refn’s first production in his native Denmark in 15 years. He is best known for the Pusher trilogy (1996–2005), Bronson (2008), Valhalla Rising (2009), Drive (2011), Only God Forgives (2013), The Neon Demon (2016), and the series Too Old to Die Young (2019).

“With Copenhagen Cowboy, I am returning to my past to shape my future by creating a series, an expansion of my constantly evolving alter-egos, now in the form of my young heroine, Miu,” said Winding Refn. 

He hinted he will work with the streamer on future projects. “Collaborating with Netflix and bringing this show to life has been an absolutely wonderful experience on all levels. I not only perceive them as my partners with many future adventures to come, but also as my friends. The new term has been born: Netflix Winding Refn.”

Copenhagen Cowboy also stars Lola Corfixen and Zlatko Buric, with additional cast including Andreas Lykke Jørgensen, Jason Hendil-Forssell, Li Ii Zhang, Dragana Milutinovic, Mikael Bertelsen and Mads Brügger.

Copenhagen Cowby is created and directed by Winding Refn. The writers are Sara Isabella Jønsson, Johanne Algren and Mona Masri, and the DoP is Magnus Nordenhof Jønck. Production design is by Gitte Malling and music by Cliff Martinez, Peter Peter and Julian Winding.

The series is produced by Lene Børglum and Christina Erritzøe through NWR Originals.

Jenny Stjernströmer Björk, director Nordic original series at Netflix, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to finally be able to announce that we have partnered up with Nicolas Winding Refn, one of Denmark’s most acclaimed filmmakers, and are bringing him back to Denmark to produce a local Danish show after more than 15 years abroad. Nicolas is a creative force and is such a fascinating and unpredictable filmmaker. We can’t wait to bring Copenhagen Cowboy to the world.”
