The service, which was announced last week, has picked up drama Hit and Miss, which starred Chloe Sevigny and was written by Shameless creator Paul Abbott and Lisa Kudrow-fronted comedy Web Therapy. It has also bought two factual titles from the distributor; Morgan Spurlock’s A Day In The Life and New Britannia.
“We are pleased to have finalised this agreement with FremantleMedia Enterprises and are looking forward to bringing these unique formats to the Nordic audience through HBO,” said HBO Nordic executive vice-president, programming and operations Line Mykland.
Justin Hatfield, senior vice-president, sales for UK, Eire and Scandinavia, FME added: “The new HBO channel is a great addition to the Nordic media landscape and our shows will have great appeal to audiences in the region. From the darkly compelling Hit and Miss to the distinct comedy of Lisa Kudrow, and Morgan Spurlock’s unique approach to factual storytelling, we’re looking forward to seeing the success of these titles on HBO Nordic.”
