Bauer sets up int’l banner

Ex ProSieben exec founds Munich-based Tandem

Rola Bauer, an international TV veteran who most recently worked for Germany’s ProSieben, is setting up her own banner, Tandem Communications, to focus on trans-Atlantic co-productions and deficit financing for TV and film properties. The company will be based in Munich and opens its doors this week.

Bauer, a Canadian, has spent the past seven years in Europe, first at Alliance Intl. Television in Paris and latterly at ProSieben. At Alliance, Bauer worked to expand the company’s scope in co-productions, worldwide sales and marketing. At ProSieben she initially supervised co-productions and series acquisitions and later expanded to oversee animation and co-financed features.

“Germany is the second most important market in the industry, but outsiders have a tough time getting a handle on it. I see myself as a kind of bridge between the German industry and the people who want to do business here,” she said.
