At Viaplay, Eymundsson oversaw drama productions such as The Architect; The Fortress, winner of the Best Screenplay Award in the International Competition at Series Mania 2023; and the forthcoming seasons of Viaplay’s flagship series Wisting.

Monday Group’ has production companies in several countries, including Monday Media in Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway, and Monday Scripted in Denmark and Norway. The company also includes Impact TV, Koncern, Feelgood, Rabbit Films, Rabbit Formats, Teddy TV and Showpeople.

Monday Scripted was established in Oslo in 2017 as the Norwegian drama arm of Monday Media. Its credits include Aber Bergen for ITV Studios/TV3, I Am Earth for NRK and Gangs of Oslo for TV2/Netflix.

Explaining the move, which was first reported by local news site, Eymundsson said he appreciated Monday’s strategic focus. “At a time when production companies are downscaling drama, I’m impressed with Monday Scripted’s uncompromising strategy. Despite challenging times, new opportunities arise that we must be ready to seize,” he said.

Quality local scripted shows are still being commissioned in the Nordics, despite the challenging economic situation, said Martin Dalgaard, CEO of the Monday Group. “Strong local drama series continue to be in demand and remain an important part of our investments in Norway,” he said.
