Stockholm-based scripted producer Dramacorp has hired Nice Drama creative director and EP Henrik Jansson-Schweizer (pictured, right).

Jansson-Schweizer, who co-founded Nice Drama with Nebout (pictured, left) in 2009, joins the Swedish business – which was then founded by Nebout in 2016 – in the role of creative director and executive producer.

His credits include SVT Sweden’s family drama Thicker than Water and Viaplay original crime series Hassel. In 2017, he also directed the doc biopic Superswede about 1970s Formula One racer Ronnie Peterson.

During their partnership at Nice Drama, Jansson-Schweizer and Nebout produced a number of high-profile dramas, including the Oscar-nominated feature film The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared and French-Swedish co-production Midnight Sun.

Dramacorp was founded in 2016 by Nebout in a joint venture with Jan Mojto’s Beta Film. The firm’s development slate includes high-end thriller The Head, co-produced with Spain’s Mediapro; English-language series Rare, a co-production with Canada’s Bron Studios and Paris-based Isolani Pictures; and young adult supernatural series Cryptid for Scandi SVOD platform Viaplay.

Nebout said: “This really is a ‘getting the band back together’ moment. Henrik is one of this industry’s finest and most experienced creative executives. I’m thrilled to have him join the Dramacorp team as we up our game further and expand our activities to international shows.”

Jansson-Schweizer added: “After ten great years at Nice Drama, it feels the right time to reunite with Patrick and take part in the Dramacorp adventure. As always, when Patrick and I get together, we have extremely high ambitions. With Patrick’s international knowhow and sense for the market’s zeitgeist, I truly believe there’s no limit to what we can achieve.”
