Following The Bridge: The multiple flows from Denmark to Asia

Publikation: KonferencebidragKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskningpeer review

Scandinavian television series have had an unexpected global success during the last decade. With the airing of Forbrydelsen (The Killing) on BBC4 in the UK in 2011 the door was opened for other non-Anglophone TV series from Europe, making subtitled drama attractive for both buyers and audiences across the world. Taking the case of the Swedish-Danish co-production Bron/Broen (The Bridge), this paper follows the crime series across the globe, considering two different, yet interconnected circles of cultural flow: Firstly, the official exploitation chain of the original series, considering the dynamics and backgrounds of acquisition and broadcasting in, for instance, Germany, UK, Australia, Japan, and the series’ three adaptions in the US, UK/France, and Russia (The Bridge, The Tunnel, and Мосt respectively). Secondly, the “unofficial” chain of cultural circulation, including fan subtitled versions on illegal streaming platforms. By doing so, the paper aims to understand the interconnectedness between fan based sharing cultures and industry controlled distribution patterns.
