Nent Group Aiming to Ramp Up International Slate

With studios in the U.S. and the U.K., the Scandinavian major Nent Group is becoming ever more global with Filippa Wallestam, who became COO of the company and heads up originals, both local and international, along with content acquisitions and programming.

Wallestam, who started in this position in October, spoke to Variety about Nent Group’s global ambitions for the coming years while attending Content London to look for acquisitions, production and co-production opportunities.

“We’re done about 20 originals this year and we plan on doing a lot more going forward, especially more English language series — we already have a handful in the pipeline including two non-scripted series and a documentary,” said Wallestam.

In the vein of its first international hit, the L.A.-based comedy “Swedish Dicks” which Peter Stormare and Keanu Reeves, the company is aiming for projects combining Nordic ideas and stories with international potential.
