Matador is a Danish TV show that was made and aired from 1978 to 1982. Between 1929 and 1947, it takes place in the made-up Danish town of Korsbaek. It focuses on the rivalry between the families of two businessmen, Hans Christian Varns, a respected local banker, and Mads Skjern, a social climber who just moved to town when the show started. The series' tentative English title was derived from a localized version of the board game Monopoly. Also, in modern Danish, the word "matador" is often used to describe a business tycoon. In the series, it refers to Mads Skjern's skill as a self-made businessman. Matador was created by author Lise Nrgaard and most of the episodes were written by her, Karen Smith, Jens Louis Petersen, and Paul Hammerich. The famous Danish director Erik Balling was in charge of the show. The series is one of the best-known and most-watched Danish TV shows. It was made by the public service channel Danmarks Radio, which has been developing Danish TV drama for a long time. The series has become a big part of how Danes see themselves today. This is partly because it was able to mix melodrama with a distinct warm Danish sense of humor in its portrayal of characters, who were played by a wide range of the most popular Danish actors at the time. It also accurately showed a troubled Denmark from the beginning of the Great Depression to the end of World War II, when Nazi Germany occupied Denmark.
