Reporting to WBITVP Sweden’s managing director, Johan Idering, Hedman will spearhead the development and production of all scripted television content.

Ronald Goes, executive VP and head of Warner Bros. International TV Production, said Hedman has a “strong track record of bringing exciting, original stories to both local and international audiences.”

Goes added that Hedman’s “appointment reflects our ongoing commitment to local scripted TV content.”

Idering said that “scripted content is the fastest-growing TV genre in Sweden….With a skilled and ambitious person as Johan Hedman behind the wheel, we look forward to growing our creative drama department.”
