Endemol Shine Germany has established a new scripted label, MadeFor Film, led by producer Nanni Erben along with Gunnar Juncken, who have been appointed as joint CEOs.

Together, the pair will be responsible for creating and producing premium scripted series and films for the local and international markets. They will also actively pursue opportunities for co-productions within Endemol Shine and with other platforms and partners.

Erben and Juncken will be joined by Ralf Husmann, who will complete the team as showrunner. Other senior appointments include producers Rima Schmidt and Tasja Abel. Schmidt has worked for H&V Entertainment recently, while Abel arrives from Dynamic Television and will be responsible for MadeFor Film’s co-productions.

Lars Blomgren, head of scripted for EMEA at Endemol Shine Group, said: “Nanni and her team have an excellent creative reputation and are behind some of Germany’s most popular scripted series. We are excited to collaborate and bring MadeFor’s home-grown content to the world stage as we collaborate and leverage Endemol Shine’s unique global and local axis.”

Erben added: “We have an exceptional team in place with huge potential to create thrilling scripted series that not only entertain audiences in Germany but also globally. The German market is known for producing a high caliber of drama and it’s a brilliant time to launch MadeFor internationally.”
