Wallander, Millennium Triology and Fort Boyard producer and distributor Zodiak Media today said it would reorganize its London- and Paris-based international sales operation, Zodiak Rights. As a result of the restructure, managing director of Zodiak Rights London, Jane Millichip, will exit the company at the end of January. The newly-created role of COO will be filled by former director of broadcast at NBCUniversal’s KidsCo TV, Sara Wookey.
From Januray 1, rather than be territoriy-based, Zodiak Rights’ new structure will be genre-based and include five divisions: non-scripted, scripted, kids, digital & publishing and clips. All non-scripted programming will be sold out of London while scripted will trade out of Paris. All other divisions will be based out of London. Zodiak Rights CEO, Matthew Frank, said the shift would “provide absolute clarity for buyers on where they should be going.”
