ZDF Enterprises, the commercial arm of German public broadcaster ZDF, has kicked off the new year by acquiring shares in Nadcon Film.
Nadcon Film, which was founded in 2012 by Peter Nadermann and Constantin Film, specialises in co-producing first-class film and television projects mainly with international partners. Nadermann will remain the managing director of the German company following ZDF Enterprises’ takeover of the majority of the shares previously held by Constantin Film.
“I’m really looking forward to the renewed collaboration with ZDF Enterprises,” said Nadermann. “Together, we’ve achieved many great things upon which I’d love to build. The modern world of media is an exciting challenge for producers, and we’re eager to implement our ideas and inspire audiences.”
Fred Burcksen, president and CEO of ZDF Enterprises, added: “We are pleased to be able to resume our successful collaboration while taking on a corporate structure. ZDF Enterprises and Peter Nadermann set the trend many years ago by being the first to invest in Scandinavian crime series and successfully distribute them around the globe. The result: the widely recognised international interest in ‘Nordic Noir’ remains as strong and steady as ever. We are confident that we will be able to come up with new ideas and create trends within this new cooperation.”
