Clara Herngren – co-creator of the TV success The Bonus Family – New Executive Drama Producer at TV4 and C More

In their continued pursuit of high-quality Swedish drama, TV4 and C More are hiring TV creator Clara Herngren as executive producer to head up the drama unit. Clara has solid experience from both the humour and drama genre, and is behind the audience success The Bonus Family.

As part of TV4 and C More's focus on high-quality Swedish drama content, a number of heavy recruitments were made during the spring, including renowned director Erik Leijonborg. Now, acclaimed TV creator Clara Herngren is being brought in as executive producer at TV4 and C More's drama unit.

Clara has extensive industry experience with roles, including creator and development manager at production companies. Most recently she was part of the The Bonus Family script group at FLX.

- I am thrilled to be part of the drama team at TV4 and C More. I have worked in TV production most of my life, but now for the first time on the buyer side. It will be a new perspective, but of course with the same goal in mind – making the best possible TV, says Clara Herngren.

Clara is also a trained therapist, which has served as a basis for her work on, for example, the audience success The Bonus Family, and is something she hopes will continue to provide inspiration in her new role.

- I find relationships and how people interact incredibly exciting. It is a great source of inspiration for basically everything I do and I look forward to translating my past experiences into creative products in the projects ahead of me, says Clara Herngren.

Clara will work on developing new formats as well as refining existing viewer favourites in both humour and drama.

- Bringing Clara onto our team feels great and creatively exciting – it is simply another dream recruitment for me! I am convinced that she will make a sizeable impact on our future productions and we look forward to being challenged by Clara's skills and wise eye, says Josefine Tengblad, Head of Drama at TV4 and C More.

Clara Herngren took up the new role on 21 August.
