Unfinished DR series already sold to the US

An American production company has secured the rights to a program that has not yet finished recording

The new Danish TV series ‘Bedraget’ will be aired in the US under the title ‘Follow the Money’. Although the show, which has Nikolaj Lie Kaas in the lead role in Denmark, has not finished production in Denmark an American production company has already secured the rights to remake the series.

“The series has caught US interest at this very easy stage which shows that Jeppe Gjervig Gram and his writers have managed to tell a complicated story in an understandable way,” said head of DR drama, Piv Bernth. “Everyone involved has created a work of class and this just underlines that DR fiction series are of high quality.”

Experience on all sides

Richard Brown is one of the forces behind the American remake. Brown recently created and produced ‘True Detective’ and ‘The Knick’ for Anonymous Content.
