HBO Nordic acquires content from Fremantle
MUMBAI: FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME), the commercial and brand extension arm of television format creator and distributor FremantleMedia, has become a launch supplier to HBO Nordic, the pan-regional channel launched last week in Stockholm, inking a deal that will see some of FME titles in drama, comedy and factual finding audiences across Scandinavia.
Sales include drama ‘Hit and Miss‘, comedy ‘Web Therapy‘ and two factual titles from Morgan Spurlock. In ‘A Day in the Life‘ Spurlock uses his trademark wit and humour to give an insight into 16 very different lives including Sir Richard Branson and Will.I.Am; ‘New Brittania‘ takes a comedy sideswipe at the behaviours and institutions which make Britain so…British.
FME senior VP sales for UK, Eire and Scandinavia Justin Hatfield said, "The new HBO channel is a great addition to the Nordic media landscape and our shows will have great appeal to audiences in the region. From the darkly compelling Hit and Miss to the distinct comedy of Lisa Kudrow, and Morgan Spurlock’s unique approach to factual storytelling, we’re looking forward to seeing the success of these titles on HBO Nordic."
The FME catalogue spans thousands of hours of drama, comedy, factual and kids and family titles available to broadcasters around the world.
