Norwegian Portrait Artist of the Year in development, Danish version returns

Norwegian portrait artist Håkon Børs Lind

Norwegian pubcaster NRK is developing a local language version of cultural format Portrait Artist of the Year.

Created by Storyvault in the UK for Sky Arts, the six-part series will be produced by Oslo-based Nordisk Banijay (71 Degrees North), with episodes recorded in museums across Norway.

Portrait Artist of the Year sees gifted artists given the chance to paint a star from a cast of celebrity sitters. Banijay handles international distribution of finished tape and format.

Meanwhile, Danish pubcaster DR1 is bringing a 6×60’ version of the format back to the screen after a year-long hiatus. It will be produced by Mastiff Denmark (Drag Me Out).
