Both outfits are backed by production-distribution powerhouse Endemol Shine Group, which is in the process of being acquired by Banijay Group.
Palmquist will report into Lars Blomgren, head of scripted for Emea at Endemol Shine. She will be responsible for all the firm’s scripted programming from the Nordics, including series from Rubicon, Endemol Shine Finland, Metronome Denmark and Filmlance.
At Filmlance, she takes over from Anders Landstrom, who has stepped down from the managing director position, but will continue in an executive producer role for high-end local and international projects. Landstrom shepherded projects such as “Caliphate” and “Tsunami” during his tenure.
Palmquist was previously with HBO Nordics, where she was commissioning editor and VP responsible for original content for the region.
