Meanwhile, ITV Studios acquired Sweden’s Elk Production and RLJ Entertainment expanded its pact with AMC Networks to invest more in content. On the awards front, Kevin Spacey will receive the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award, and the TCA Awards nominations included multiple nods to FX’s Atlanta, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and NBC’s This Is Us. In personnel news, Endemol Shine Group dismissed CEO Gokan Tatarer and Chief Commercial Officer Hakan Eren after a review of its local business in Turkey, while Apple appointed former Sony TV presidents Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg to oversee all aspects of video programming.
Red Arrow International’s Henrik Pabst
By Anna Carugati
Part of the Red Arrow Entertainment Group, Red Arrow International is a global distributor of scripted, unscripted and factual programming. It taps into shows from the group’s 19 production companies and also works with third-party producers and digital content partners. Among its recent top-selling series are the scripted drama Bosch and the unscripted format Married at First Sight. Red Arrow International has, in fact, opened the market up to a whole new genre of formats: social experiments. A recent addition is the heartwarming The Old People’s Home for Four Year Olds, which sees children spending time with retirement-home residents to the great benefit of the elderly. As Henrik Pabst, Red Arrow International’s managing director, tells World Screen Weekly, he is especially proud of this show, as well as the company’s diverse programming slate.
