Global Screen Sees Demand for Family Programming, Action Series

14 May 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »


Telepool and Bavaria Film formed a giant last year in world sales joint venture Global Screen, and the result has been a boom for the bottom line.

Headed by Telepool CEO Thomas Weymar and Bavaria Media managing director Rolf Moser, Global Screen took over the responsibilities and operations of Telepool and Bavaria’s individual international sales units, handling one of the biggest catalogs in Europe and targeting sales and distribution of films and TV programming outside German-speaking territories. Both Telepool and Bavaria are majority owned by affiliates of pubcaster behemoth Ard.

“The results of the first year have been very satisfying given the fact that the company had to get started,” Weymar says. “It shows us that there is a strong market demand for our programs.”

Weymar adds that because the merger of Telepool and Bavaria’s world sales divisions was seamless and quick, the new outfit was able to immediately impact revenue growth. »
