Global studio Entertainment One (eOne) has named Christian Fritzsche as vice president international sales.
Fritzsche will manage the exploitation of eOne’s new and existing content to Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
“We’re delighted to welcome Christian to the team,” said Stuart Baxter, president of eOne Television International. “Germany is a growing market and significant to our business. Christian’s widespread knowledge and strong relationships will be invaluable as we continue to build on our existing partnerships with the German broadcast community across licensing and co-productions.”
Prior to joining eOne, Fritzsche worked at BBC Worldwide where he built up the scripted business for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. He also held positions in production in Germany and China.
eOne develops, produces, acquires and distributes television programming across all genres. The company, for example, handles international distribution for The Mark Gordon Company’s original scripted series including Designated Survivor and Conviction, AMC’s The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead and Into the Badlands as well and Sundance’s Hap and Leonard.
