SVT will air Gessle documentary

STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) – Swedish Television will air a new half-hour long Per Gessle documentary on September 25 at 20.00 CET. “Per Gessle – Ta en kaka till (Have another cookie)” is the working name. “It’s a very personal and private image,” says producer Hans Engholm to Aftonbladet. Hans is in the process of creating the documentary together with Paul Möllerstedt and Anders Karlsson of Produktionsbolaget.

  Besides the trio’s own footage, the show will include some of Per Gessle’s personal videos. “He’s shot loads of film himself. From when the recording of ‘Mazarin’ started a year ago,” Hans says. He’s followed Per through his victorious tour during the summer. Hans filmed the concert in Halmstad the other day, for instance. “Per is amazingly uncomplicated, and great to work with. I think everyone sees that,” Hans tells Aftonbladet.

  There are also plans to release the documentary on DVD after it has been aired. “Yes, we’re discussing this at the moment, but nothing has been decided at all,” Hans Engholm concludes.
