A six part Danish romantic comedy drama about fertility treatment, parenthood, choices and love. –
Today Netflix reveals the launch date of Baby Fever and releases the first teaser. The six part romantic comedy-drama centers around the life of fertility doctor Nana (Josephine Park) and the clients she meets and treats…. and lies to!
When Nana (Josephine Park), in a drunken state, inseminates herself with a really special portion of sperm – namely her ex-boyfriend’s – she starts a chain reaction of catastrophes, both big and small. This rash move leads to a pregnancy and Nana now has to figure out how to explain her condition – which one can’t hide forever – and win back her ex-boyfriend and long-lost love. The problem is just that he doesn’t seem particularly interested in getting back with Nana.
The secret pregnancy allows Nana to see her clients in a different light, but as her lies grow bigger, it gets harder and harder for her to navigate in them and for the first time in her life, Nana has to tell the truth – and maybe reveal a secret that could ultimately cost her everything.
Josephine Park says :
“I was in no doubt when I was offered the role of Nana in SKRUK because the series touches on something that fills a lot of people’s lives: the desire to have children and having a hard time with it. I hope SKRUK can help to debunk preconceived ideas around being in fertility treatment and in an unpretentious way articulate the pain but also the joy that can be associated with creating a family. And then it has been exciting to portray such a complex character as Nana. She is a super-competent doctor with good people skills and at the same time unable to navigate her private life.“
