Banijay Germany Bolsters Scripted with Investment in Dynamic Ally Pictures
Media and entertainment powerhouse, Banijay, announces further scripted expansion with a new Banijay Germany joint venture - Dynamic Ally Pictures. Founded and led by Helgoland 513 executive producers Veronica Priefer and Johannes Kunkel, the Berlin-based company brings a fresh perspective to the entertainment landscape.

Dedicated to ambitiously developing, packaging, and distributing scripted content for the German and international market, Dynamic Ally Pictures’ Priefer and Kunkel have built a reputation on high impact, returning drama. First collaborating in 2017, the pair exclusively developed and produced multiple projects for UFA Fiction, including two seasons of the historical RTL+ series, The King of Palma, which they created. Working across both the linear and streamer landscape, Kunkel produced Netflix comedy, Betonrausch, which made it to number one in the German Netflix charts. The duo serve as executive producers of the critically-acclaimed dystopian series, Helgoland 513, which premiered on Sky Deutschland this year.

Marcus Wolter, CEO and co-founder Banijay Germany said: "Veronica and Johannes have an impressive instinct for capturing the zeitgeist through powerful returning scripted series. We’re proud to invest in the future of these two creative minds who are known for their hands-on approach, and we warmly welcome them to Banijay Germany, as we continue our efforts in diversifying and expanding our content offering.”

Veronica Priefer and Johannes Kunkel, Founders and Managing Directors at Dynamic Ally Pictures, said: “Banijay Germany and Marcus Wolter embody the entrepreneurial flair and inspiration we’ve been seeking in a partner. The company’s optimism and undeniable creative vision, paired with a pragmatic approach, immediately fascinated us. We’re excited to embark on new projects for creatives and clients across the local and international market, and welcome the support of the wider group’s distribution operation.”

Dynamic Ally joins Banijay Germany’s high-profile portfolio of producers, including scripted label MadeFor Productions, led by Nanni Erben and Gunnar Juncken, behind hits such as long-running series Tatort, LGBTQIA+ love story Loving Her and Then You Run, produced in association with UK label Kudos for Sky.
