Sky Studios has promoted Nils Hartmann to the newly created role of senior VP of Sky Studios Deutschland and Italia.

Hartmann will lead the development, commissioning and production of Sky original dramas and comedies for Sky Deutschland while retaining his current responsibilities for producing scripted originals for Sky Italia.

A German national, Nils brings a local perspective and a global outlook to our slate, building on the success of hit franchises such as Babylon Berlin, Das Boot and Der Pass.”
