Beta buys Atlantic Crossing producer

Kyle MacLachlan plays FDR in Atlantic Crossing

Beta Nordic Studios (BNS), part of Jan Mojto’s Munich-based Beta Film, has bought a majority stake in Norwegian prodco Cinenord.

Founded in 2004 and led by couple Silje Hopland Eik and Alexander Eik, Cinenord has produced scripted series including Atlantic Crossing, which stars Sofia Helin and Kyle MacLachlan, and Viaplay’s Wisting.

It is the fourth company under the BNS umbrella, which includes Finnish production outfit Fisher King (Nymphs, Bordertown), Icelandic Sagafilm (The Minister, Stella Blomkvist) and Sweden’s Dramacorp (Cryptid, Agent Hamilton).

BNS focuses on local scripted projects with international appeal, which are then distributed internationally through Beta Film.

Martin Håkansson and Justus Riesenkampff, directors of BNS, said: “We’re happy to join forces with Silje and Alexander, who are among the strongest creators in Scandinavia, and we are looking forward to delivering great drama shows to audiences around the world in the future.”
