Bonusfamiljen and Torpederna 2 were voted respectively Best Drama and Best Comedy shows at the Swedish television awards.

Jesper Harrie is head writer for both shows and received the awards in Stockholm on Friday.

Pontus Edgren, Managing Partner at FLX said: ’It was a great night for FLX at the Kristallen awards! Never before has a production company managed to win in both scripted categories and this means a lot to us. We are grateful that so many brilliant writers choose to work with us.”

Harrie was nominated earlier this year at the inaugural Nordisk Film & TV Fond Best Script award in Göteborg with Bonusfamiljen (The Bonus Family). The series about the joys and hassle of living in a recomposed family, was a major hit for SVT earlier this year, averaging 1.3m viewers. Season 2 of the dramedy will air on January 2018 and a third season has been commissioned by SVT. Season 1 & 2 have been acquired by Netflix and remakes are lined up for France, Germany and the US.

Torpederna 2 (Trigger Men 2) co-directed by Måns Herngren & Jens Sjögren, aired on C More in the spring. Freemantle Media handles world sales.
