For its16th edition, the La Rochelle International TV Drama Festival (September 10-14) has decided to add international dramas to its official competition and two Nordic TV series are part of the ten international scripted fiction programmes on show: the Danish period series Seaside Hotel (Badehotellet) and Finnish contemporary thriller Black Widows (Mustat Lesket). 


Co-written by Stig Thorsboe and Hanna Lundblad, the Downton Abbey style Badehotellet is TV2 Denmark’s most successful TV drama since 1997 and another season is currently in production for SF Film Production. Badehotellet is sold internationally by Nordic World. 

Besides the competition programme, La Rochelle TV Festival is organizing several industry debates and Badehotellet ‘s co-creator Hanne Lundblad and producer Michael Bille Frandsen (SF Film Production) will compare their working methods with the French creators of Petits meurtres d’Agatha Christie (Escazal Films).
