Premiering May 31, 2022 on MHz Choice!

Åre is a village in northern Sweden whose permanent population of 1,500 swells to over 60,000 in peak ski season. It is Scandinavia’s largest mountain resort, and a vacation destination as breathtakingly beautiful as it is dangerous. Keeping the locals and tourists safe is the job of a crack emergency services team – police, fire, mountain rescue and EMS – all working together, balancing their personal lives with the acts of everyday heroism that are all part of their job.

The series begins with the arrival of Zara (Nadja Halid), a young resident doctor who joins the medical clinic on the recommendation of its director, her long-time mentor. But their reunion is cut short by a paraglider crash in the woods – and this plus a subsequent high-speed car wreck make for an intense first day at the job. Character is the focus here, and Zara’s new team includes Norwegian ambulance nurse Sofia (Tiril Eeg-Henriksen), policewoman and devoted single mother Åsa (Karin Bengtsson), carpenter/mountain guide Tomas (Göran Gillinger), firefighter/bartender Markus (Mårten Svedberg) – and ace tracker dog Rim (woof!)

The series, co-created by Johan Falk producer Joakim Hansson, shares many of the same behind-the-scenes talent as that popular series, including production designer Dave Marshall, composer extraordinaire Bengt Nilsson and Falk mastermind Anders Nilsson, wearing his editor’s cap for this one.

First Responders premieres May 31st, 2022 on MHz Choice!
