Following the establishment of two new production companies in Germany over the past 12 months and the sale of Red Arrow Studio’s US production business in the summer of 2022, ProSiebenSat.1 is bundling its eight subsidiaries in Germany, UK, Denmark and Israel and its global programme sales arm under the umbrella of the newly established Seven.One Studios.
The new production house offers a wide-ranging production portfolio that will produce content across all key programme genres, both for its own platforms and for external clients – from primetime entertainment and reality to drama and factual entertainment and from documentaries to infotainment.
In the future, there will be a clear focus within the German-speaking territories on content with young talent for the young target group. For worldwide programme distribution, Seven.One Studios will utilise the international expertise of Red Arrow Studios International. Seven.One Studios will be managed by Henrik Pabst (CEO), Alexander Pesch (CFO) and Martin Metzger (COO).
“The demand for content is only increasing. This makes it all the more important for cross-platform providers like ProSiebenSat.1 to have access to the right content and its development, including in-house production capacities,” said Henrik Pabst, Chief Content Officer of Seven.One Entertainment Group and CEO of Seven.One Studios.
“By founding Seven.One Studios, we are making ourselves more independent from the competitive German production market. Our European production houses, alongside our well-established Israeli production company, remains a vital part of our business. It is also clear: We will continue to spend a large part of our local budget on the third-party producer market. Likewise, our production companies will continue to operate freely on the market and work for external clients,” added Pabst.
