Naeturvaktin, Iceland's Most Popular TV Show

Naeturvaktin, or The Night Shift, is part of a trilogy, its sequels being The Day Shift, and The Prison Shift. It first aired in 2007 and won an Edda award for Best TV Series. Bjarnfreddarson was a movie created as a conclusion to the trilogy which was nominated for 11 Edda awards and was watched by over twenty percent of the Icelandic population. The show revolves around the lives of three patrol station employees on Laugavegur in Reykjavik, Georg, Olafur, and Daniel. Georg, being the boss orders the other employers to do many insane things throughout the series which is why the show is so popular. An adaptation of the show is in the works for the American industry in which to producers are working together to rework the characters and make the show a success in this country as well!
