Danish producer and Oscar winning short film director Kim Magnusson is developing a feature film and TV series about iconic comedian-pianist Victor Borge.
Borge was a musical prodigy who could famously deliver gags both verbal and physical while simultaneously performing complicated tunes on the piano and conducting an orchestra. Borge still holds the record for longest running one man show in Broadway history with his act running for nearly three years.
Borge’s five children have all agreed to opening their private archives and sharing personal stories and memories of their father with the filmmakers. Mette Lisby and Jesper Baehrenz will produce and production aims to be underway by late 2018.
