Season 1
Episode 10

Birgitte Nyborg's government is facing a severe test shortly before the annual opening of parliament: the opinion poll ratings for the Moderates are the worst in a long time, while the Labour Party is surging forward, and therefore pushing Birgitte to obtain more influence. Meanwhile, her family is breaking up – she and Phillip are at home by turns, but are not speaking to each other. Kasper is struggling to get Birgitte's opening speech ready on time, but lacks inspiration. So does Katrine, who does not expect to be allowed to return to TV1. Suddenly, however, she gets the chance when Kasper arranges for her to do a portrait of the prime minister on TV1, in which Birgitte and Phillip are to act the part of a happily married couple. The portrait is Kasper's invention, to let Birgitte quash the rumours of a pending divorce and win better poll ratings. Birgitte is unenthusiastic about the idea, but agrees, provided that Kasper arranges for the prime minister to have the right to edit the portrait – a clear breach with all customary media practice. 2015 Arrow Films
