SEO, set up in 2008, is known for its lineup of light entertainment, documentaries and comedy content. Current productions include doc series Feuer Und Flamme (pictured) and standup comedy series Your Life Is A Joke on Netflix.

Kogel said: “With SEO Entertainment, we are pleased to welcome another successful, creative and innovative production company to Leonine Studios. SEO expands our range of services with attractive light entertainment, documentary and comedy content and is an excellent addition to our entertainment division at our production site in Munich. The company has an excellent team and Gillad Osterer is an outstanding producer who has inspired us time and time again with his creative ideas.
