Fuse transforms into Fabrik

New name reflects Euro roots for 'Killing' producer

BERLIN

Los Angeles-based Fuse Entertainment, the company behind TV series including “The Killing,” “Burn Notice” and “The Good Guys,” is embracing its Scandinavian roots and changing its name to Fabrik Entertainment from Monday.

Fabrik, which means “factory” in Danish, Swedish and German, is majority owned by Red Arrow Entertainment, part of German media giant ProSiebenSat.1.

Danish-born Mikkel Bondesen founded the company in 2005; its partners include Swedish CEO Henrik Bastin as well as Kristen Campo.

The name change follows a successful development cycle for the group, including the recent pilot pickup by Bravo of new family drama “Rita.”

Additionally, “The Killing,” which stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as a pair of Seattle homicide detectives, is expected to return for a third season on AMC and Netflix.

The company will also retain its first-look deal with Fox Television Studios and representation by William Morris Endeavor.

In a joint statement, Bondesen, Bastin and Campo said, “The name Fabrik reflects the company’s founding mission to bring the best properties, talent, studios and networks together. We believe doing so is essential to our goal of producing compelling television that defines a network.”
