So I had previewed this series what seems like aeons ago. However I canna find it. So am re-posting the information about Legacy below.
Suffice to say, I was reminded of Legacy with an Advertisement that came up with the words: “The Killing” on screen, which obviously caught my attention. In fact my heart seemingly skipped a beat albeit metaphorically. Purely a Pavlovian response to the words.
But sadly no, there is no new The Killing, whether American or Scandinavian. Legacy, as the ad unfolded and enlightened us, is made by the makers of The Killing and Borgen.
Truth be told, it sounds a little dreary. Dunno if it’s my cup of tea. But I will give it a go. we shall see.
The Legacy/ Arvingerne
Quoted from source: dated 10th November 2014.
“From the makers of The Killing comes Danish drama The Legacy
( Arvingerne), this autumn.”
“Following the death of progressive internationally renowned artist Veronika Grønnegard, The Legacy traces the story of Veronika’s four adult children, whose distinctive upbringing has affected their lives in very different ways. The division of Veronika’s estate marks the beginning of a journey into a complex set of secrets and lies for her four children.
“The series paints a portrait of a Danish family and their children, coming to terms with the challenges of change and the traces of violent upheaval from their past.”
“Directed by the internationally acclaimed actor and director Pernilla August and created by author Maya Islø. The Legacy is produced by the leading European production house DR Fiktion-the BAFTA and International Emmy-Award-winning production unit behind the drama series The Killing and Borgen and stars Trine Dyrolm, Jesper Christensen, Lene Maria Christensesn, Carsten Bjørnlund, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Marie Bach Hansen and Trond Espen Seim”.
