NETFLIX PRESENTS BARRACUDA QUEENS – A NEW SWEDISH DRAMA SERIES FROM THE PRODUCERS OF QUICKSAND

Inspired by true events, Barracuda Queens follows a group of young women who commit burglaries in an attempt to liberate themselves from the expectations on women – long before feminism became a household idea. The show draws a raw image of a world where some get away with crime, and others do not.

“This is a unique series that I have never been close to creating or writing before. I am so happy to continue collaborating with Frida and Fatima, and that Netflix believed in our idea. Our ambition is to create something fun, challenging and fresh and at the same time tell a story about the times we live in – with five smart upper-class girls from Djursholm who knows no limits as the main characters”, says Camilla Ahlgren, head writer of the show.

Camilla Ahlgren (Quicksand, The Bridge) is the head writer, with Sofie Forsman (Young Royals), Tove Forsman (Young Royals) and Veronica Zacco (Burn All My Letters) as co-writers. The series will be directed by Amanda Adolfsson (Eagles). Barracuda Queens is produced by Frida Asp och Fatima Varhos through their newly formed production company Asp Varhos. Asp and Varhos have previously worked with Netflix on a number of shows, including the critically acclaimed Swedish series Quicksand and Love & Anarchy. Production of Barracuda Queens recently started in Stockholm.
