In the news
A number of companies released their financials over the past week, including The Walt Disney Company, which saw revenue and profit gains in the third quarter; Discovery, Inc., where Q2 net income fell as a result of restructuring charges from the Scripps Networks transaction; CBS Corporation, which reported strong results for the second quarter; and ProSiebenSat.1 Group, where revenues slipped for the first half of 2018. In other news, AT&T acquired The Chernin Group’s controlling interest in Otter Media, a joint venture between the two companies; WndrCo, a holding company co-founded by Jeffrey Katzenberg, secured $1 billion in an initial funding round for the mobile-first media platform NewTV; and CORE Media Group acquired the production company The Intellectual Property Corporation and is relaunching as Industrial Media, to be led by Eli Holzman.
Red Arrow Studios International’s Henrik Pabst
It’s a welcome development for distributors like Red Arrow Studios International that non-English-language dramas are no longer facing the same barriers they used to. The company has its first LatAm scripted show in the catalog with Falco, based on The Last Cop. The Spanish-language crime procedural, from production powerhouse Dynamo (Narcos) and Spiral International, has been garnering solid interest internationally, according to Henrik Pabst, the president of Red Arrow Studios International.
Comedy, too, has been crossing borders, says Pabst, with highlights such as Lice Mother. He also shares with World Screen Weekly’s Anna Carugati what’s new in boundary-pushing formats like Code to Love and high-quality factual like Man’s First Friend.
