UFA Alum Nico Hofmann Teams with Jan Mojto


Longtime UFA executive Nico Hofmann is joining forces with Jan Mojto and Beta Film producer Jan Wünschmann for future productions.

The partnership will see the production of German and European series and films for the international market. Hofmann and Mojto previously collaborated on the event series The Tunnel, along with two dozen other television and film productions, including Generation War, Dresden, The Tower and The Same Sky.

Hofmann said: “Jan Mojto and I have been close colleagues and friends for more than 20 years—our eye for programming, uncompromising quality, and passion for our profession unites us. It is the next logical step in my career to join forces and produce together with Beta Film. The individuals and their creativity are the building blocks for a long-lasting bond.”

Mojto added: “This partnership is the fulfillment of a long-held wish. Nico Hofmann is one of the best German producers; He is a gifted storyteller. His professional and personal qualities, which I have known for more than 25 years, are the ideal foundation for many projects to come—stories for Europe from Germany. I am happy to accompany Nico Hofmann in this endeavor.”

Wünschmann said: “The current production environment for fictional storytelling is challenging and characterized by rising costs and complex financing structures. I am convinced that with our combined efforts, Nico Hofmann and Beta will produce outstanding projects.”
