Drama about an artist's family has yet to premiere in Denmark, but is expected to be another overseas hit for Danish TV
Just when you thought it was safe to donate your Sarah Lund jumper to the charity shop and stop dreaming of becoming Staatsminister like Birgitte Nyborg, along comes another TV drama to reignite British viewers' love affair with Denmark.
The 10-part series The Legacy – Arvingerne in Danish – was launched in Copenhagen this week, and will arrive in Britain next year. The channel is as yet unconfirmed but BBC4's 9pm Saturday night slot has become the home of Scandinavian dramas including Wallander, The Killing, The Bridge and Borgen.
It is typical of the high international regard with which the output of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation is held overseas that The Legacy was sold to the UK, Benelux countries and Australia before it even premieres next month in Denmark. »
