MUMBAI: FremantleMedia has signed a deal to acquire a majority stake in Miso Film, a leading Danish scripted production company. Under the deal – financial terms of which are not disclosed - FremantleMedia will have a 51 per cent holding with the opportunity to acquire the remaining shareholding in the future.

Founded in 2004 by the producer team Jonas Allen and Peter Bose, Miso Film has established itself as a preeminent Scandinavian production company focused on high end prime-time TV series and films for the Scandinavian and larger European markets.

FremantleMedia CEO Cecile Frot-Coutaz commented: “This is an important milestone in building our prime time script business and strengthening our position in the Scandinavian market. Jonas and Peter’s talent and strong track record in producing high end drama, together with their current slate, makes Miso Film a perfect fit for FremantleMedia and complements our existing high end scripted business in the US, Germany and Australia.”

Miso Film founders Jonas Allen and Peter Bose said: "Partnering with FremantleMedia is an important step forward in Miso Film's growth strategy. We strongly believe that FremantleMedia will be a key driver in Miso Film's further expansion in the Scandinavian market and release the full potential of the company's productions internationally.”

Miso Film has had incredible success with its prime-time scripted series across Scandinavia, most recently launching Dicte on TV2 Denmark, TV4 Sweden and TV2 Norway to great ratings success, with a second season of the series already in production. In addition, crime thriller Those Who Kill has been picked up by A&E Networks for a US remake. Miso Film is currently producing the epic war drama TV series and film 1864, which is the largest production ever in Denmark with co-production support from some of the largest Scandinavian broadcasters including Denmarks Radio, TV2 Norge and TV4 Sweden.

On the big screen, Miso Film has produced the feature-length Danish thriller The Candidate; co-produced the Norwegian World War II resistance drama Max Manus - the biggest box-office success ever in Norway with 1.2 million admissions - and the English language feature film Ginger and Rosa. Their latest feature film Danny's Doomsday is currently in post-production and will be ready for theatrical release in fall 2014.
