Public Service Originals

A stronger Nordic public service drama collaboration

The Nordic public service media companies DR, NRK, RUV, SVT and Yle have in recent years been renowned for outstanding Nordic drama productions. High quality
drama with a clear local anchoring and strong public service ambitions has become one of our distinguishing trademarks.

To ensure that strong, local drama remains a trademark of the Nordic public service broadcasters in a digital world, the Nordvision partners have decided to build a stronger public service drama portfolio. A strengthening that will increase both the volume of Nordic drama that each company have available on their “players” as well as the quality of the publishing right the partners secure for each other.

A clear focus on drama that reflects a Nordic culture, reality and identity fits naturally with the public service mission, and it provides a genuine and recognizable promise to the users that sets Nordic public service apart from other content providers. The initiative is called “Nordic Twelve” (N12).
