People have an enormous curiosity about how other people live and react and documentary filmmakers can use this human interest to develop engaging documentary series for TV. Erik Struve Hansen from Danish Broadcasting Cooperation will inspire us with two cases studies:

-          I Am the Ambassador (which follows the daily routine of the openly gay U.S. ambassador to Denmark, Rufus Gifford) – from the inception of the idea to the sale of the series to Netflix;

-          Petra Dates the World (an unconventional series where the host, Petra Nagel, puts her personal life and emotions on display as she dates men from all over the world) – a new type of host putting themselves in the main role.

We’ll watch an episode from each series and talk about the genre in a conversation with Erik Struve Hansen and Ansis Bogustovs (TV24).
