Episode 75: Interview with Christian Torpe

Netflix's Rita interviewWelcome to a special podcast episode where we’re chatting with the creator and writer of the television series “Rita.” In this exclusive interview, we talk with Christian Torpe all about his television series, which stars Mille Dinesen (pictured to the right) as Rita, an outspoken, rebellious schoolteacher. This Danish show, which aired on Denmark’s TV2 and is now available on Netflix, has been Amanda’s favorite summer binge watch.

Speaking with Christian, we finally get to find out more about how he came up with the idea for the show and its lead character, why this television series portrays female characters differently on tv, and whether there’s a possibility of a 4th season – plus much more about this charming, emotional and thoughtful show! Even if you haven’t watched the series yet (what are you waiting for?!) we think Christian offers some great insights into the art of creating and writing television.
