Fed up with TV series and auteur cinema, Emilie Semiramoth does not also hide her penchant for pop culture in all its eccentricities. From the bromance between Spock and Captain Kirk in Star Trek to the disillusionment of Lynch’s Mulholland Drive, she ignores gender boundaries.

In partnership with the CANNESERIES Festival, DashFUN offers you an interview with Adam Price, the creator of Borgen with Sidse Babett Knudsen, the Danish series which tells about the rise of a woman to the post of Prime Minister.

A true European phenomenon when it was launched in 2010, the series Borgen, a woman in power has been a public and critical success during its three seasons. On the occasion of its broadcast on Netflix, the series created by Adam Price, encountered a new craze. So much so that the Danish channel DR and Netflix are teaming up for a new season.

This Borgen comeback – which follows the journey of a centrist politician who becomes Denmark’s first female Prime Minister – brings together creator Adam Price and lead actresses Sidse Babett Knudsen as Birgitte Nyborg and Birgitte Hjort Sørensen as Katrine Fønsmark.

In this new season, we will find Birgitte Nyborg, with her team and the media tasked with following her in her new role as Minister of Foreign Affairs. We will also find the former journalist Katrine Fønsmark just as she returns to journalism as news director for a major national television station.

Adam Price promises to stay true to Borgen’s style, borrowing a certain amount of optimism, but he will also adapt the tone at the time. A darker tone then. Filming began last January as this tweet indicates:
