Beta Nordic Studios (BNS) has taken a majority stake in A Piece of My Heart and Sune producer Unlimited Stories.
The deal will see BNS, which was launched by Germany’s Beta Film in 2019, taking a 51% stake in the Swedish production company.
Unlimited Stories was founded in 2016 by Poa Strömberg, Patrick Ryborn and Linus Stöhr Torell, who have produced a range of feature films and moved into TV with Missing People for Sweden’s SVT.
The company becomes the fifth under the umbrella of Beta Nordic Studios, which also houses Finnish production company Fisher King (Bordertown), Icelandic Sagafilm (The Minister), Norwegian Cinenord (Atlantic Crossing) and Sweden’s Dramacorp (Agent Hamilton).
Strömberg, CEO at Unlimited Stories, said: “When Beta Nordic Studios presented an idea of a true partnership, we really felt that this suited our ambitions for the years to come. The backing from Beta Film and the co-operation in Beta Nordic Studios with Saga Film, Fisher King and Cinenord will enable Unlimited Stories to step into the next level.”
Martin Håkansson, CEO at Beta Nordic Studios, added: “We’re proud to partner with Unlimited Stories, who are among the strongest producers in Scandinavia with a very passionate and experienced management team; and we are looking forward to delivering great drama shows to audiences around the world in future.”
