A further 10 episodes of the channel's first-ever English-language series has been ordered.

NBC will debut the comedy on July 10, after acquiring the US broadcast rights in October.

Welcome to Sweden is based on Greg Poehler's life, and follows Bruce (Greg Poehler), who falls in love with Swedish girl Emma (Josephine Bornebusch), and decides to relocate to the country to be with her.

Ileana Douglas, Patrick Duffy and Lena Olin also star in the comedy.

Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell, Aubrey Plaza and Gene Simmons appear in cameo roles during the first season.

"It's an amazing feeling to create a show to which people are responding so favourably. We intend to make season two even better," said Greg Poehler.
