Banijay Germany has confirmed a new leadership structure at Good Times, with entertainment producer and joint Managing Director, Shona Fraser, appointed to solely lead the company, working in partnership with Chief Operating Officer Knut Kremling. Fraser has an extensive industry reputation for entertainment programming, having established "Battle of the Reality Stars," "Love Island," and "Naked Attraction" in the German market. She has held entertainment, development, and programming positions at RTLZZWEI and served as an Executive Producer at RTL Studios, Tresor TV, and MME, where she was responsible for Popstars and Next Top Model Germany.

“Together with the strong Good Times team, I am looking forward to creatively shaping the future of this production house, working closely with colleagues at Banijay. I’m a true fan of the existing portfolio and want to fully develop its potential and explore new exciting ways to captivate audiences with a fresh slate of programs,” Shona Fraser, Managing Director of Good Times, said.

“Over the years, Good Times has been built into a unique creative company, and without a doubt, the success will continue with Shona at the helm. She is a TV visionary, bringing innovation and originality to all her program-making, and the company has a bright future ahead,” Marcus Wolter, CEO and co-shareholder of Banijay Germany, added.

Shona Fraser replaces Good Times founder Sylvia Fahrenkrog- Peterson, who is leaving the company. She founded the label in 1998, positioning it as a producer of daytime brands and prime-time hits such as "Mein Lokal, Dein Lokal," "Der Trödeltrupp," and "Armes Deutschland." In 2019, the then independent company was acquired, and its 150 employees were integrated into Banijay Germany. Shona Fraser, who will take over the reins, was bought in recently to bolster the management of the business.
