Skavlan is Scandinavia’s biggest late-night talk show, where host Fredrik Skavlan leads in-depth and earnest interviews with some of the world’s biggest stars, artists, politicians, scientists, writers and philosophers. Each episode consists of four guests and one musical performance, by artists such as Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Mark Knopfler, Alicia Keys, John Mayer and Sia. The show focuses on Skavlan’s conversation with the guests, and the guests’ conversations with each other. Skavlan is recorded in front of a live audience in Stockholm and in London, and is broadcast prime-time Friday night in Norway and Sweden throughout the show’s season. Each season has 12 episodes.
Skavlan is produced by the Norwegian/Swedish television production company Monkberry AS, which is owned by Fredrik Skavlan – host and creative director – and Marianne Torp Kierulf – producer and CEO.
