According to Lina Brouneus, director of acquisitions & co-productions – EMEA, it will also have a small team of employees based in a satellite office in Copenhagen.
Netflix already has European offices in Amsterdam, Madrid, Berlin, London, Paris and Brussels, with Rome and Istanbul opening later this year.
Commenting on its involvement in the Nordics, Brouneus said: “Netflix has always felt at home in the Nordics. It was one of the first places outside of the US where we started making local original shows, and over the past nine years we’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the most brilliant creative talent in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland.
“By the end of this year nearly 70 original titles coming from the Nordics will be available on Netflix – films and series that have been enjoyed by the four million-plus members across the region as well as our members right around the world. In fact, almost two thirds of our members globally have chosen to watch a Nordic original film or series – made in the Nordics, watched by the world”.
Brouneus added: “Our Nordic hub will allow us to strengthen our many creative and cultural partnerships across Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland, to work on a growing offer of series and films throughout the region, and to bring even more diverse local stories to life for our members around the world to enjoy”.
