It’s Time For Nordic Drama Producers to Foster Co-Pros With the Rest of Europe, Say TV panellists at Göteborg

At a Göteborg TV Drama Vision panel about the Nordic drama mayhem, producers praised co-producing with the rest of Europe.

Co-panellist Ulf Synnerholm, head of TV Drama at the leading Swedish outfit B-Reel Films(“The Congregation”, “Before We Die”), said that until now, he had relied predominantly on the Nordics’ well-oiled national and regional co-production and financing mechanisms. “Today, we have only one streaming service financing 100% [Netflix] in the Nordics; we’re pleased with local financiers, but we will look into upping our co-productions in the rest of Europe where tax incentives would be a sweet benefit of a good organic creative partnership, while doing it in a sustainable way”, he said. Referring to streamers’ obligations to invest in European content via the Audiovisual Media Services (AVMS) Directive, she highlighted that signatory countries such as France, “have not been affected by the drama crisis” like [non-signatory] territories such as the Nordic nations.
