WILD BUNCH TV and ZWART ARBEID present The Oil Fund, a brilliant, ambitious and edgy fictional drama that takes an insider look at the colliding worlds of high finance and public service.

Per Grepp, deeply flawed financial genius and, according to some, Norway’s sexiest man, puts his country’s monetary – and moral – stability at risk when his performance figures drop. With the eyes of the ethics committee on him, will Per be able to manage their growth and sustain his golden boy status? Can the delicate equilibrium between ethics and finance be maintained or will personal agendas inevitably compromise them?

Created by Hollywood-based Norwegian director Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid, Pink Panther 2…) and inspired by insider information, this dramedy highlights the boundless complexity of balancing money-making with social responsibility.
