Case study with the creators of Finnish mini Series The Astronaut due to be broadcast in Finland by Elisa Viihde Viaplaywith Pete Riski (Co-creator, director), Mikko Pöllä (producer, Fire Monkey), Roope Lehtinen (producer, Fire Monkey).
Yesterday the world fell asleep. Today the astronaut fell to Earth. There won’t be tomorrow unless she can wake us up.
An American astronaut wakes up in the snowy wilderness of the Finnish Lapland. After almost freezing to death, she makes her way to a remote house where she gains access to the Internet, only to find out that almost the entire population of the planet has fallen asleep. With the help of a young boy, the astronaut must solve the mystery of what has happened to the world.
The co-producer talk about how the script wrote itself in the beautiful setting of Lapland, and that the series actually started as a film idea but they soon discovered that it needed to be longer than originally thought.
