Endeavor Content has invested an undisclosed amount in Nordic Drama Queens, the new Scandinavian production company launched by Josefine Tengblad, Sandra Harms and Line Winther Skyum Funch.
The Stockholm- and Copenhagen-based company launches this autumn with a focus on developing premium drama from established and emerging voices from the Nordic region and around the world.
The three founders have served in various capacities in the region’s entertainment sector.
Tengblad was formerly head of drama at TV4/CMore and previously served as an independent producer. Her credits include Blinded, Top Dog and Agatha Christie’s Hjerson.
Harms is the former MD and producer at Fremantle-backed Miso Film Sweden and has produced Modus, 438 Days and Lust, in association with HBO.
Funch was executive producer and founder of WISK and prior to that executive producer and chief content officer at Yellow Bird. Her credits include Millennium, Occupied and Thin Ice.
“In a time where content creation is rapidly evolving, everything still comes down to talent,” said the Nordic Drama Queens founders. “Our focus will centre on talent partnerships. With Endeavor Content’s support and expertise, we will relentlessly pursue our goal to elevate stories that have not been told and in a way that resonates in the marketplace and with audiences around the world.”
Endeavor Content co-presidents Chris Rice and Graham Taylor added, “We are excited to collaborate with Josefine, Sandra and Line on their vision to build a Scandinavian-based footprint for premium local and international drama content.
“Innovative storytelling has no borders and this new venture will provide opportunities to create stories from a wide variety of voices in a region that has already established itself as one of the top producers of global content.”
