Lite Sällskap is a relational documentary in which Filip and Fredrik will help four people in Grums in Värmland to find love. Or a little company. They have traveled the world, aired directly from New York, looking for big shots all over Sweden, watched the Obama victory, giving us answers to life's strange questions, competed in geography and beat Kajsa Bergqvist in the long jump. Now Filip and Fredrik go to Grums in Värmland to help the lonely find love. In the summer of 2010 Filip Hammar and Fredrik Wikingsson moved to Grums together to help people in the small mill town and the surrounding area who feel alone. There are people who are alone in various ways, for different reasons and with different preferences. All with two things in common: they want a little love and companionship and they talk värmländska.
Runtime: 60 minutes
Lite Sällskap - Filip Hammar and Fredrik Wikingsson - Netflix
Lars Filip Hammar (born March 26, 1975) and Fredrik Wikingsson (born August 16, 1973), commonly known as Filip and Fredrik, are two Swedish writers, television hosts and journalists both known for their youthful, though intellectual, humour and unconventional journalism. The duo has been celebrated for their relaxed and spontaneous style in front of the camera. As Filip explains: “We just turn on the camera and go”. Since 2002, Filip and Fredrik have together produced eleven different TV shows and, in the aftermath of the shows' successes in Sweden, written books. The duo owns, and works within, the company “Framgångsfabriken” (The Success Factory), started in 2001, which takes credit for their media appearances. The pair has had their sexuality questioned repeatedly by the people they interact with on camera. Although they are heterosexual, jokes about their would-be gay relationship has become a running gag.
