Niclas Andersson is one of those who ensure that Västerbotten has electricity. He works as a distribution electrician and line fitter for Skellefteå Kraft and this means he is one of those who make sure that power is delivered from the power source to the customers. He maintains the network and also helps build new ones.
A couple of months ago, a request came from Skellefteå Kraft if any of their technicians would be interested in being part of a new television program.
– I thought how many chances do you get to do this? So I put my name forward.
He went for an interview and was then quickly told that he had been selected.
– I was nervous at the start. Wasn't sure how to behave. But I very quickly forgot that I was wearing a microphone. The TV crew almost become workmates, even though they don't work. Well, they don't do our job, says Andersson and laughs.
The series began filming last autumn. The film crew has been up several times, sometimes for a week at a time, sometimes for a few days.
–There are no reshoots. What happens happens.
Tonight is the premiere on TV3 and Viaplay at 9 p.m., but NIclas might miss it.
– It feels good to rip off the band-aid, to get it out of the way. But I don't know if I'll see it because I'm on call.
