Nadia Kløvedal Reich will step down at the end of the month, at which point Bernth will take on responsibility for the role.
DR’s scripted output under Kløvedal Reich has included The Killing and Arvingerne (The Legacy), with series such as the Miso Film-produced 1864 (pictured), Denmark’s biggest budget TV series ever, coming up this year.
“Together with head of drama Piv Bernth, head of fiction Nadia Kløvedal Reich has played a key role in DR Fiction’s generational shift,” said DR’s culture director Morten Hesseldahl.
“Having been on a great journey with DR Fiction over the past six years, I’m now going out there to find inspiration,” said Kløvedal Reich. “It’s been great to head DR’s drama productions during a period when our work has been distinguished with awards both at home and abroad.”
