Nick Strange Thye Named Executive Producer at The Underground in New York


Formerly with The Mill, he’ll lead post production efforts as company expands into live action and direct to brand work

Nick Strange Thye Named Executive Producer at The Underground in New York
In a move that signifies the company’s aggressive dedication to its core post-production business, The Underground has brought on executive producer Nick Strange Thye, who joins the boutique content company after four years at The Mill.

Nick’s appointment comes on the heels of veteran production executive Hugh Broder being named as The Underground’s managing director/executive producer at the beginning of the year. “Nick has an amazing depth of experience and knowledge in production and post production, both in the US market and overseas,” explains Hugh. “I’m very excited to have him as a partner as we continue to expand and build our capabilities.”

Nick was a senior producer at The Mill, overseeing a range of projects, including spots for the NFL for Super Bowl 50, Cadillac for The Oscars and Samsung for the Olympics, as well as ads for adidas, the US Marine Corps and PlayStation 4, collaborating with such agencies as Johannes Leonardo, BBDO, Droga5, Rokkan and BBH. Nick, who’s from Denmark, previously worked in Europe as an international executive producer for several companies, including Chimney Group.

At The Underground he’ll work closely with Hugh as well as creative director/lead flame artist Nic Seresin. Recent projects at the studio include extensive post production on a new Hyundai campaign for Innocean as well as a soon-to-be-released short film for Aston Martin.

“I believe in the flexibility of boutique companies,” says Nick. “They represent the future for this industry. The business is changing to be more project-based, and The Underground has the ability to build the right team for each project. Because of my European background, I have a lot of experience doing this, and I’m eager to put that expertise to work here.”

The Underground is part of the P2P Group, which also includes P2P Retouching, a leading presence in the beauty industry for the past two decades. The expansion of the umbrella group is a concerted effort led by company Owner Ben Bettenhausen.

“I love the synergy between Hugh and Nick and how they work as a team,” Ben says. “We have a tremendous opportunity to grow both companies through our dedication to great work and superb client relations. We’re a force to be reckoned with.”
