‘SWEDISH DICKS,’ STARRING PETER STORMARE AND JOHAN GLANS, PREMIERES ON POP ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2

SWEDISH DICKS, a new scripted procedural comedy from Lionsgate and MTG about a mismatched pair of L.A.-based detectives, premieres on Pop on Wednesday, August 2 (8:00 PM, ET/PT).

Starring Peter Stormare (“John Wick: Chapter 2,” “Fargo,” “American Gods”) and actor/comedian Johan Glans (Best Male Comedian, “Swedish Comedy Awards”) with special recurring guest star Keanu Reeves (“John Wick,” “The Matrix”), SWEDISH DICKS is a half-hour single camera comedy about an aging ex-stuntman (Stormare) stuck in the past and an overly optimistic Swedish DJ (Glans) stuck in the digital world. Together they get unstuck by forming the private detective firm Swedish Dicks, solving some of the strangest and wildest cases L.A. has ever seen. The 10-episode first season features an array of guest stars, including Traci Lords (“Cry-Baby,” “Melrose Place”), Margaret Cho (“Fashion Police,” “Drop Dead Diva”), Anthony LaPaglia (“Without a Trace,” “Frasier”) and Eric Roberts (“The Dark Knight,” “Suits”).

“We’re thrilled to bring the clever procedural comedy SWEDISH DICKS to Pop this summer,” said Chris Selak, Lionsgate’s EVP of Worldwide Scripted Television. “The series reunites the incomparable Peter Stormare from our Starz hit, ‘American Gods,’ and superstar Keanu Reeves from our blockbuster ‘John Wick’ franchise, and gives them an opportunity to dive into great comedic roles on television.”

“SWEDISH DICKS is a distinctive mix of comedy, mystery and action with a terrific ensemble cast that keeps you watching until every last case is solved,” said Justin Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Pop.
