NENT makes Epiq investment

Anders Dalgaard

NENT Studios, part of recently formed Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), has expanded its operations in the Nordic region by acquiring a Danish drama production company.

NENT has become the majority owner of Copenhagen-based scripted prodco Epiq, which was founded by director and producer – and founder of Monday Media – Anders Dalgaard. Financial details of the deal have not been revealed.

Epiq has offices in Copenhagen and Los Angeles, where executive producer Robert Hull and producer Cecil Brent O’Connor are collaborative partners.

The prodco, which will use the NENT investment to develop further original content and acquire rights, is working on a range of original projects that remain under wraps but are in financed development.

Dalgaard, CEO at Epiq, added that the deal was “a perfect match” for his production company and said it would offer a “platform and an ideal launchpad for us.”

NENT Studios’ parent NENT Group was formed ahead of the planned splitting up of Nordic media giant MTG.

NENT Group includes broadcasting, streaming and distribution operations in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, spanning free and pay TV. It houses the TV3, TV6, TV8 and TV10 channel brands, Viaplay digital streaming services, and the Nice Entertainment production operation.

The latter is one of Europe’s biggest producers, with a portfolio that includes Monster, One Big Happy Family, Playroom, Rakett and Novemberfilm in Norway, as well as Strix in Scandinavia and the Netherlands and Paprika Studios in Eastern Europe.

Yesterday it was revealed that Jeremy Fox, founder and chairman of UK-based, MTG-owned distributor DRG, would be stepping down from his position to be replaced by Mogensen.
