JUST TWO SEASONS INTO PRODUCTION, THE SHOW HAS ALREADY BEEN AWARDED TWO REALITY TV AWARDS.
For the first time ever, billionaire Karsten Ree opens a door for us into his extraordinary life. He lets us into the mansion on the ‘right’ side of Strandvejen in Vedbaek where he lives with his new love, the ‘Oddset girl’ Janni Mathorne Christensen. This is the latest program in Kanal 5’s new reportage series ‘Janni and Karsten – Love Against All Odds,” which premieres this autumn.
In Kanal 5’s new reportage series, Janni and Karsten are followed through thick and thin in their stormy relationship, which has been marked by turbulence, rumors and malicious gossip right from the beginning. The kind that tends to follow in the event where the age difference is large, the fortune even larger and the female party already convicted of having cheated an older rich man for 1.5 million DKK. SBS Discovery writes in a press released today.
The viewers get a chance to follow the couple’s glamorous life when the two go to Kenya, where Karsten has his Karen Blixen Camp, or when they take a quick trip to London together to pick up a new Cobra car that Karsten has fallen in love with. The show also invites the viewers to follow Janni, when she gets her prison sentence of one and a half years for having deceived an elderly rich man as well as when she has to go and serve her time in Horserød state penitentiary.
“We are extremely happy and proud to be able to present this series with Karsten Ree and Janni Christensen at Kanal 5. They are without doubt one of Denmark’s most fascinating and hard-working couples, who understandably have already been much discussed. We have gained unconditional access to their extraordinary lives for better or worse, and I dare to promise that we will see some sides of the couple that have never been shown before,” says program director at SBS Discovery Media, Maiken Wexø.
The series ‘Janni and Karsten’ is produced by STV and broadcast on Kanal 5.
