Fraser, who joined Good Times in March as joint MD, will now serve as the sole MD and will work in partnership with chief operating officer Knut Kremling.

During her career, Fraser has worked on series including German adaptations of Battle of the Reality Stars, Love Island and Naked Attraction, with a CV including stints at RTL2, RTL Studios, Tresor TV and MME.

“Together with the strong Good Times team, I am looking forward to creatively shaping the future of this production house, working closely with colleagues at Banijay,” said Fraser.

“I’m a true fan of the existing portfolio, and want to fully develop its potential, as well as exploring new exciting ways to captivate audiences with a fresh slate of programmes.”

Marcus Wolter, CEO and co-shareholder of Banijay Germany, added: “Over the years, Good Times has been built into a unique creative company, and without a doubt the success will continue with Shona at the helm. She is a TV visionary, bringing innovation and originality to all her programme-making, and the company has a bright future ahead.”

Outgoing Fahrenkrog-Petersen launched the label in 1998 and grew the company’s reputation as a producer of daytime and primetime series such as Mein Lokal, dein Lokal, Der Trödeltrupp and Armes Deutschland.

Fahrenkrog-Petersen’s departure comes three years after Good Times was acquired by Banijay.
