Gillad Osterer’s SEO Entertainment, which specializes in light entertainment, documentaries and comedies, will become part of LEONINE Studios effective January 1, 2021.

Osterer will continue as managing director of SEO, reporting to LEONINE Studios CEO Fred Kogel. “SEO expands our range of services with attractive light entertainment, documentary and comedy content and is an excellent addition to our entertainment division at our production site in Munich,” Kogel said. “The company has an excellent team and Gillad Osterer is an outstanding producer who has inspired us time and time again with his creative ideas. We look forward to unlocking additional growth potential in working together.”

Osterer added, “I am particularly pleased that SEO is ‘docking on’ to what I believe is currently the most attractive European media company. Not only from a content point of view does this result in an exciting growth perspective, the overall concept of LEONINE Studios has absolutely convinced me on a human level as well. I am very much looking forward to working together in a great team.”

Osterer established SEO Entertainment in 2008. Current productions include Feuer Und Flamme for WDR and Your Life Is a Joke on Netflix.
