• What Makes Danish TV
    Drama Series Travel?

  • Transnational Production,
    Cultural Export and
    the Global Reception of
    Danish Drama Series

About the project

The project investigates why and how Danish TV drama currently is travelling. Our hypothesis is that specific transformations and value creations are happening at all stages in the production system of Danish TV drama production, from the idea to the production, distribution and reception processes, respectively. The phenomenon calls for a theoretical rethinking of centre/periphery complexity within global TV, in particular cultural proximities, travelling style, production value and the role of small nations’ TV production. The project conducts empirical studies both of production (export, co-production, remakes) and reception (audience studies on three levels), by developing the Screen Idea System model to study the process of travelling TV drama series.
