Fremantle Completes Acquisition of 12 NENT Labels


Fremantle has closed its acquisition of 12 production labels in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group).

The deal covers Strong Productions in Denmark; Grillifilms, Moskito Television and Production House in Finland; Monster, Novemberfilm, One Big Happy Family, Playroom, Rakett and Strix Televisjon in Norway; and Baluba and Strix Television in Sweden. The portfolio will be branded as the “this is nice” group, overseen by Morten Mogensen, who is remaining as CEO.

To manage the integration of the assets, a Fremantle Nordics Board has been created, led by Group CEO Jennifer Mullin, together with Global COO and CEO of continental Europe Andrea Scrosati and other executives. Mogensen will work with Daniela Matei, Fremantle’s CEO of Nordics and Poland, on the integration plan, reporting to Scrosati.

Mullin commented, “We welcome the new labels and incredible talent into the Fremantle family. We are very proud of our existing businesses in the Nordics who have achieved great success. With the completion of this acquisition, we look forward to working closely with Morten and the great creative talent within our new group and achieving bigger things together within the region.”
