CONNIE NIELSEN TO LEAD
KAREN BLIXEN TV SERIES
We have been mentioning her often lately, first for The Pact movie that follows later years in the life of famous Danish writer Karen Blixen, and then
because her book Ehrengard will be turned into a movie, but now we have news that after Meryl Streep who played her in Out of Africa, now Connie Nielsen will play Karen Blixen in six part mini TV series THE DREAMER - BECOMING KAREN BLIXEN for Nordic streamer Viaplay. The series which has been shot already and is now, as Screen Daily reports, in post production, has the story set in the 1930s, and follows the author’s return to Denmark after many years in East Africa. Penniless, sick and divorced, the series depicts her journey from this point to becoming a renowned writer. The series will air next year and will be sold internationally as well.
