This autumn, two popular TV dramas will shoot in Copenhagen: BBC’s successful TV production of ”Wallander” starring Kenneth Branagh and the Danish-Swedish TV series “The Bridge”. The Copenhagen Film Fund provides funding.
During its first year, The Copenhagen Film Fund attracted and provided funding for international TV series such as Barnaby and The Team. Now, two highly popular TV dramas are added to the list of international TV sets shooting in Copenhagen this autumn: the Danish-Swedish TV series The Bridge III and BBC’s TV production Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh, based on Henning Mankell’s crime novels.
Wallander ends in Copenhagen
In Copenhagen, BBC will shoot the three final episodes of the Wallander TV series based on the novel The Troubled Man, which is the closing Wallander novel. The remaining episodes will be shot in Ystad, Sweden, and in South Africa.
”We are very happy about Copenhagen becoming a central location in this highly popular TV production. We are looking forward to welcoming Kenneth Branagh and the film set”, stated Thomas Gammeltoft, CEO, The Copenhagen Film Fund.
Wallander is a co-production between the Swedish production company Yellow Bird and the British Left Bank Pictures.
About The Copenhagen Film Fund
Copenhagen Film Fund was founded in June 2013 by a number of municipalities in the Copenhagen region as well as a number of film industry service providers.
The Copenhagen Film Fund’s prime purpose is to invest in international and Danish film and TV productions to be produced in the Copenhagen region and distributed nationally and internationally. The Fund invests primarily in international productions of high artistic merit with Danish co-producers, but Danish productions with international distribution in place may also qualify.
