The pan-Scandinavian deal will see Nordisk’s production units across Denmark, Norway and Finland and Elk Entertainment working exclusively together to produce new titles. The two-year deal is the first of its kind for Elk.

“Nordisk FilmTV has some of the strongest producers within all genres in the region, so the combination of the unique creativity of Elk Entertainment and Nordisk FilmTV’s production competencies is a dream match.”
