Finnish Media Execs Form New Production Venture Take Two


Aito Media alums Eero Hietala and Ilkka Hynninen, along with Lasse Koskinen, have come together to launch Take Two Studios, which will produce across drama, documentaries and podcasts.

Hietala and Hynninen co-founded Aito Media in 2003. Koskinen, who will serve as Take Two Studios’ CEO, has 21-plus years of experience in the film, games, digital media, advertising and private healthcare businesses.

Take Two Studios launches with a ten-project co-production agreement with Aito Media, consisting of series in development at Aito Media created under Hietala and Hynninen. The co-production pipeline includes the dramas 506 Grams of Ural Snow and Saturday Society.

Hietala and Hynninen commented: “After a long, successful stint growing a Finnish generalist production company to exit stage, now in this second chapter of our entrepreneurial careers, we have decided to become a strong international specialist in drama and documentary production. We are full of energy and enthusiasm to bring stories we are passionate about to international screens.”
