Some Similarities to Some American Shows
29 October 2013 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This show, which my wife (who is Danish) and I find highly entertaining bears a strong similarity to two American shows--Nurse Jackie and Homeland. Like Jackie, Rita is a troubled protagonist, good at her job, but struggling with a failed marriage, rebellious children, sexual incontinence, and irksome co-workers. Rita's sidekick Hjordis is a clone of Jackie's co-worker Zoe. Likewise, Rita's Mille Denesen bears strong physical resemblance to Homeland's Claire Danes (Carrie) as well as Carrie's sexual promiscuity.

I think the writers of Rita may have done a little borrowing of character development from these American shows.
