Miso Film appoints Christian Rank as Head of Development

As the Nordic production powerhouse increases its international drama development and productions, Miso Film welcomes Christian Rank as Head of Development & Producer with clear ambitions to grow and expand the company and to strengthen its creative profile and continuous growth in the Nordics.

Starting August 2022, Christian will have a view across local and global productions, working on the development and production of scripted projects for Miso Film, bringing in valuable IP and building a strong roster of creative talent.

Christian Rank graduated from The Danish Film School in 2005 and has since left a lasting legacy on Danish fiction. He was behind TV 2 series such as RITA, NORSKOV, WARRIOR and LUCKY PER along with LYKKE and THE LEGACY at DR. As Head of Drama at DR, Christian was responsible for productions such as WHEN THE DUST SETTLES, CRY WOLF, DOGGYSTYLE, JULEFEBER and the latest season of BORGEN.

On Christian’s appointment, Peter Bose, CEO & Producer of the Miso Film Group, commented:

“The decision to hire Christian is an important step in accomplishing Miso Film’s ambition of growing the company’s profile and fulfilling its huge market potential. The market has developed rapidly for several years, where streaming services and TV stations have increased the level of local content considerably. At the same time, the demands are higher than ever. Not everything performs well for the services, so there’s an increased focus on quality, originality, and consistency from both streaming services and TV-stations. Christian will strengthen our market position, and we are excited to benefit from his experience and highly professional competencies.”

Christian Rank on joining Miso Film:

“The film and TV market is undergoing great changes and that places tough requirements on production companies. Miso Film is among the strongest and most ambitious production companies in Scandinavia, and their future goal of developing both local and international productions is both attractive and ambitious. I am excited for the strategic work and to create quality productions with my new colleagues at Miso Film, and not the least to work with the creatives in the industry, who are vital to our work.”
