Fremantle has swooped in for Nordic Entertainment Group’s unscripted assets, Variety can reveal.
The RTL Group-owned “Got Talent” producer will use their new assets to form Fremantle Nordics.
The Scandinavian NENT Group has had its unscripted assets on the sales block since early 2020. The companies included in the sale are Strix, Baluba, Monster Entertainment, Novemberfilm, Moskito, Rakett, Strong Productions and Production House. Also included is branded entertainment outfit Splay One and events companies Playroom, One Big Happy Family and Grillifilms.
NENT Group recently sold off its U.K. operations, as well, with All3Media picking up the production and distribution outfit, best know for shows like “Doc Martin” and “The Cry.”
The rationale behind the sale was for NENT to streamline operations and more keenly focus on its scripted efforts. The company is a major international co-production player through its streaming outfit Viaplay.
More to come.
