ITV STUDIOS FINLAND TO PRODUCE THREESOME FOR ELISA VIIHDE

8th August, 2017 - ITV Studios Finland is to produce a series of the scripted format Threesome for the leading VOD service in Finland, Elisa Viihde.

Filming on the 10-episode series begins later this month. The ITV Studios Global Entertainment format was originally produced in the UK by Big Talk Productions for Comedy Central.

Pete Paavolainen, CEO, ITV Studios Finland, said: “We are extremely happy to bring this unique and bold comedy to Finland. Both the themes and the dialogue, which is fresh and modern, are very relevant to a millennial audience and our cast of comedians - Pamela Tola, Lauri Tilkanen and Eero Ritala - are just brilliant.”

Mike Beale, MD Nordics and Global Creative Network at ITV Studios, said: "This commission is fantastic news for Pete and his team and we are looking forward to building on it across the region. It is a great example of how we are making our formats work for us across our international territories - not to mention the versatility of Big Talk's excellent scripted comedy slate."

The ITV Studios Finland version of Threesome will follow three best friends, Vilma, Seve and Markus, who are on the brink of 30. Party boys and girls, they’ve always done everything together. Following a spur of the moment threesome with both Seve and Markus, Vilma becomes pregnant. Faced with the stark reality that this huge responsibility could be the thing that splits them up, the hedonistic group come up with a solution: to bring the baby up as a trio.
