'The Killing' Producer Takes Over Fiction Brief at Danish Pubweb
Piv Bernth, head of drama at Danish public broadcaster DR, home to international hits including The Killing and Borgen, will add the job of head of fiction to her brief, taking over duties from current DR fiction boss Nadia Klovedal Reich, who will step down at the end of the month.
In her time at DR, Klovedal Reich has overseen such scripted fare as The Killing and the upcoming period drama 1864, the biggest-budget TV series ever greenlit in Denmark, which goes on air on DR later this year.
"Having been on a great journey with DR Fiction over the past six years, I'm now going out there to find inspiration," said Klovedal Reich in a statement. "It's been great to head DR's drama productions during a period when our work has been distinguished with awards both at home and abroad."
