Borgen: Power & Glory (Denmark)
In this fourth season of the hit BAFTA Award-winning and International Emmy® Award-nominated political drama, Sidse Babett Knudsen (1864) reprises her role as Birgitte Nyborg, the former Prime Minister of Denmark and the country’s newly-appointed Minister for Foreign Affairs. Also returning to the series is Birgitte Hjort Sørensen (Greyzone) as Katrine Fønsmark, Birgitte’s former head of press, now the director of the news department for a large, national television station.
The eight-episode new season sees a drilling company suddenly discovering oil in Greenland, an event that “could be a climate catastrophe.” It also marks the beginning of an international struggle for power in the Arctic. We’re talking the United States, China, and Russia. While Nyborg is an experienced politician, here she faces a massive situation — one in which Denmark’s “big brother” relationship with Greenland means little when Denmark is but a minor player in the midst of global superpowers. As individuals and nations struggle for power, the impact of power affects people both professionally and on a personal level. People like Birgitte and Katrine.
