Four years ago, Christopher Haug joined TV2’s programming team to lead its push for new original drama, leading to series such as Meglerne (aka Brokers), Det tredje øyet (The Third Eye) and Frikjent (Acquitted).

Now the broadcaster has appointed Haug as head of drama, and he will lead a new separate drama department that will invest in more Norwegian hits.

Haug will report to programme director Jarle Nakken and begins his new role on August 1.
