Watch: Nicolas Winding Refn shares trailer for new Netflix series

The Neon Demon director will premiere Copenhagen Cowboy at the Venice Film Festival later this week

Netflix has released a trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s upcoming series Copenhagen Cowboy, which will premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 9.

Described as a “poetic neo-noir”, Copenhagen Cowboy is a six-part series that follows a young heroine, Miu (Angela Bundalovic), who is looking to take revenge on Copenhagen’s criminal netherworld. She quickly encounters her nemesis Rakel and the two “embark on an odyssey through the natural and the supernatural”.

The filmmaker told Variety that the new series had a fantasy element, “along the lines of what Hans Christian Andersen would do, a fairy tale that reflects everything around”. He says the “hero” of the show, Miu, is “almost based on on his wife, “at least when it comes to her powers”.

The Netflix series marks the director’s first project set in his native Denmark in over 15 years. It also stars Refn’s daughter Lola Corfixen, alongside Zlatko Buric, Andreas Lykke Jorgensen, Jason Hendil-Forssell, Lili Zhang and Dragana Milutinovic.

This is the Neon Demon director’s second television series, following Too Old To Die Young for Amazon Prime released in 2019.

Copenhagen Cowboy is set to be released on Netflix later this year. Watch the trailer above.
