Monday has bought the majority of the Norwegian production company Teddy TV. Teddy TV is run by five very experienced and creative TV-makers, including one of Norways most high-profiled hosts, Petter Schjerven. The production company produces a number of distinctive television programmes, such as “Typisk Deg” and “Jegertvillingene” for TV Norge, “Kjære Mor” TV2 Livstil, “Folkeoplysningen” for NRK and the recent documentary series “Petter Uteligger” for TV2.
”The people behind Teddy TV are crazy talented TV-people who produce relevant and meaningful television. The company is growing rapidly, and in terms of profile and genre it is a perfect match for our existing Norwegian platform. With the acquisition of Teddy TV, we are strengthening out position in the Norwegian market significantly, while bringing another strong creative team into the Monday Group,” says Morten Bank, Group CEO of Monday.
The active founders of Teddy TV remain minority shareholders and will in the future pose as the management with CEO of Monday Norway, Lasse Hallberg. Besides Teddy TV, Monday in Norway consists of Monday Production, Monday Sport and Norsk Fjernsyn.
