"Atlantic Crossing" TV-Series for the Crown Princess Martha of Norway

The Scandinavian star Sofia Helin will play Norwegian Crown Princess Martha, who fled the Nazis and befriended U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt, encouraging America to enter World War 2.

"Princess Martha fled the Nazis after the German invasion of Norway, escaping to the United States, where she befriended U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt and lived in the White House. Some historians credit Princess Martha with helping push Roosevelt to enter World War 2 and fight the forces of Fascism."

I must say that I'm quite fond of the habit of having Scandinavian actors from the royal's country of birth portray them as we've seen happen a few times in the last few years.

I am pretty sure that CP Märtha was a formidable woman, but crediting her with "helping push Roosevelt to enter World War 2" is a little bit of an an exaggeration, is it not ?



Anyway, I hope the series ends up being available to US audiences eventually, as I believe CP Märtha and her connection to FDR are unknown to an overwhelming majority of Americans.

The seven-month recording of NRK's upcoming "Atlantic Crossing" is concluded at Honnørbrygga in Oslo yesterday. On the last day of admission, the joy scenes are recreated on 7 June 1945, when the royal family returned to Norway after five years in exile.

If they've finished filming it all, why is there so much editing and post-production that it won't air until next year?

Trailer!

This has already aired (or premiered) in Norway. Did anyone catch it?

I'm sorry, I didn't realize there was a separate thread for the TV series and posted about it in the Crown Princess Märtha thread. The series will premiere in Norway this Sunday, the English version will premiere on PBS in spring of 2021.

This should hopefully be a nice complement to The King's Choice, considering there are scenes that look straight out of Kongens Nei. (Of course, they were stuck with more or less the same outfits.)

And a longer trailer:
(Either this is going to be very good or very bad, but it seems to be leaning towards the former.)

It's interesting how she was just plain "Martha" with-the-usual-pronunciation in English, but I suppose she didn't have much choice.

I wonder if King Harald will have something to watch while he recuperates?

No clips on YouTube yet, but trailer! With subtitles this time.
Will we get a review from anyone in Norway? Or wait for PBS.
