Hard drugs, drinking, sex and violence
The Norwegian Comedy Series EXIT – the Norwegian billionaires has become the most streamed series at NRK – ever.
The series follows a group of four men around 40, all working in the financial sector in Oslo. It is not board meetings, hedge funds and tough KPIs that fill the most of the series, but rather what goes on after working hours in their private lives characterised by deception, hard drugs, drinking, sex and violence.
EXIT is an excellent depiction of the terribly greedy and money-hungry mountain top of the financial world.
EXIT is based on interviews with four men in Norway’s financial environment – and the shocking content of the series and ultimately the interviews has made headlines not only in Norway but all over Scandinavia. Season two is furthermore based on interviews with women in the environment and the Economic Department of Norwegian Police.
