Endemol Shine Finland Strengthens Scripted Team


Endemol Shine Finland, which is working on Netflix’s Finnish drama Dance Brothers, has tapped Paria Eskandari as a producer.

Eskandari, who has worked on international feature films, will be supporting Endemol Shine Finland’s scripted series and films. She joins from Aamu Film Company, where she line-produced the award-winning films Any Day Now and Compartment No. 6, as well as The Woodcutter Story. Eskandari has also worked on the new YA series Zone-B for Yle as well as several documentaries and short films.

Starting in August, Eskandari will be reporting to Head of Scripted Max Malka.

Malka said: “Paria is well-known as a dedicated filmmaker who focuses on both the story and the people. She has a fantastic reputation within the film community, and her expertise will ensure we further grow our scripted slate and bring our know-how to the Finnish and international market. It’s going to be an absolute pleasure to work on several interesting new projects together.”

Eskandari added: “I am excited to get an opportunity to start building productions at Endemol Shine Finland. It is important that I have inspiring talents around me that share the same values as I do. Having always admired Max Malka as a filmmaker, I can’t wait to start creating unique stories together.”
