This is the first season of X Factor Sweden and it will premiere on september 9th, 2012. The tv show ‘Idol’ is the reason why there hasn’t been a swedish version before, it has been very popular, but now TV4 has ditched Idol and will start with X Factor Sweden instead. TV 4 has earlier also aired The Voice Sweden.
FX orders ‘The Bridge’ pilot based on the danish/swedish tv-series. So there will be an american version of it. It will apparently take place on the border between the US and Mexico. I hope they will make a good rework of it, I loved the scandinavian tv-series. First I saw it in swedish tv, then I saw it on danish tv, then on norwegian and then on BBC4! :)
