Munich-based Studiocanal TV Group welcomes producer Nils Dünker along with his production company Lailaps Films ("Wild Republic", "Hannes" "Eine Unerhörte Frau", "Spurlos in Marseille", "Vorsicht vor Leuten", "Beste Aller Welten") as part of the Studiocanal family.  Both companies have been working together in a trusting relationship for several years, reinforcing Studiocanal Group's ambition to produce high-quality series content in Germany.

Following the successful launch of the German adventure drama series "Wild Republic" on Magenta TV on April 16 2021, Dünker and his team are currently preparing "Gesicht der Erinnerung" for SWR/ORF; the continuation of the highly-successful "Ingo Thiel" series for ZDF. Other exciting projects are also in development and pre-production. Additionally, the film adaptation of Rita Falk's bestseller "Hannes", co-produced by Lailaps and Studiocanal, will be released this fall by Studiocanal Berlin.

Nicolas Loock, Managing Director Studiocanal TV and Tandem Productions: "Creating and producing high-quality German content is a priority for our group and very important for Studiocanal's international strategy. We firmly believe that strong series and films with German DNA can be very appealing to international audiences. In order to grow further It was important to find just the best partner and this collaboration with Nils and his team is the result."  

Nils Dünker, Managing Director and Executive Producer Lailaps Films: "We are very happy about the trust Studiocanal has placed in us and that we are able to launch even more high-quality feature film and series projects with such a strong partner. This partnership makes us one of the leading European film production and distribution companies. In times of rising budgets and increasingly complex production logistics, we couldn't imagine a more competent and capable partner for the exciting projects ahead."
