How’s that for some click-bait? Bet you Gawker couldn’t do better. The best part: it’s accurate.
While actor (and all around decent dude) Keanu Reeves has had quite a career resurgence as of late, it’s Peter Stormare, his JOHN WICK 2 co-star, who takes the lead in SWEDISH DICKS. Coming to Pop TV, this “comedy procedural” will run for 10 episodes. You can catch the first 2 when it premieres on August 2nd (8 PM, ET/PT).
From Pop TV (trailer follows):
SWEDISH DICKS, the new scripted procedural comedy about a mismatched pair of L.A.-based detectives, premieres on Pop Wednesday, August 2, at 8/7c.
Starring Peter Stormare (“John Wick: Chapter 2,” “Fargo,” “American Gods”) and actor/comedian Johan Glans (Best Male Comedian, “Swedish Comedy Awards”) with special recurring guest star Keanu Reeves (“John Wick,” “The Matrix”), SWEDISH DICKS is a half-hour single camera comedy about an aging ex-stuntman (Stormare) stuck in the past, and an overly optimistic Swedish DJ (Glans) stuck in the digital world. Together they get unstuck by forming the private detective firm ‘Swedish Dicks’ – solving some of the strangest and wildest cases L.A. has ever seen. The 10-episode first season features an array of guest stars, including Traci Lords (“Cry-Baby,” “Melrose Place”), Margaret Cho (“Fashion Police,” “Drop Dead Diva”), Anthony LaPaglia (“Without a Trace,” “Frasier”) and Eric Roberts (“The Dark Knight,” “Suits”).
