Netflix to Fund Third Season of Danish Series ‘Rita’
Netflix is taking on Danish series “Rita” about a beloved but “politically incorrect” school teacher.
Originally on TV 2 in Denmark, “Rita” will pick up where it left off by starting its third season on Netflix, thanks to the streaming service’s financial support.
“Rita”’s third season will be produced by SF Film Production. Both the Copenhagen Film Fund and The Public Service Fund will contribute financially to the series, as well (in addition to TV 2 and Netflix).
The upcoming season of the series will first debut on TV 2 in Denmark in spring 2015, but it will come to Netflix right after, where seasons one through three will be available to users in Europe, Canada, the US, Australia, and New Zealand.Tags: copenhagen film fund, denmark, Netflix, rita, the public service fund, tv 2
