BritBox UK has announced that unique ‘real time’ romantic comedy-drama series One Night will be available exclusively on BritBox UK from 28th October. A ten-episode series that chronicles a blind date; from 8pm to 1am the next morning, One Night stars Myanna Buring (Downton Abbey, The Witcher, The Salisbury Poisonings) and acclaimed Norwegian actor Anders Baasmo Christiansen.
One Night tells the story of 27-year-old Elizabeth (Buring), who works as a waitress, and Jonas (Christiansen), a 35-year-old carpenter. Their encounter is none other than a blind date. Step by step, as they get to know each other, so do we… In the midst of this weird, awkward and moving journey through the night, we the audience look deep into both of the characters’ hearts and hopes, and we feel with them the longingness to be loved.
One Night was written and directed by Lilyhammer’s Øystein Karlsen and produced by Viafilm’s Anders Tangen for Norwegian public broadcaster NRK. Federation Entertainment is handling worldwide distribution for the series.
