UK broadcaster ITV has taken a minority stake in Nordic VOD channel Cirkus, which specializes in scripted British drama, in addition to comedies and factual programming.

Cirkus, which launched in Sweden in December 2013, has long-term program supply agreements with ITV Studios Global Entertainment, BBC Worldwide, Endemol and All3Media International.

The deal between ITV and Cirkus also sees Dan Gopal, senior VP of global digital media at ITV Studios Global Entertainment, joining the board of Cirkus.

“Cirkus is a compelling service that offers a wide choice of the British series that Nordic audiences love so much, available on demand for consumers to enjoy at their convenience,” said Gopal in a statement.
