Winner of the 2012 International BAFTA Award, Borgen is the latest Danish drama sensation from the producers of the acclaimed series The Killing. Like its American cousin The West Wing, Borgen uncovers a world of political gamesmanship, the intricate public and private lives of politicians, media spinners, and the reporters who traffic in their triumphs and failures.
The setting is Borgen, the nickname for Denmark's parliamentary building, ("The Castle" in English). Our hero is the smart and sexy populist Birgitte Nyborg. After scoring her party a landslide victory through her idealism and work ethic, she now faces the biggest dilemma of her life: Will she succumb to pressure to compromise her ideals and maintain her political position? Don't miss this award-winning drama Newsweek calls "the best political show ever."
