In recent years, Danish television drama series have become an internationally acclaimed export success. This article analyses the development on the domestic market lying behind this international recognition. A change in production dogmas has formed the characteristics of these successful Danish drama series, and over the last 20 years, state-owned public service provider DR has successfully developed a Sunday evening slot, within which their television drama series attract ‘the entire nation’. This success has also inspired other Danish broadcasters/production companies. We investigate the characteristics of these productions and the development of their audience profiles across age, gender and educational level.
