SYDNEY — Australian producer-distrib Beyond is moving its American TV distribution office from Los Angeles to New York.
Jennifer Buzzelli has been tapped Beyond’s Gotham-based international sales veep, replacing one-year incumbent Paula Hawes who, for personal reasons, was reluctant to make the move East. Former DLT Entertainment sales director Buzzelli also served as sales manager for the National Geographic/Canal Plus joint venture Explore Intl.
While Beyond Films will keep an office in Hollywood, a company rep confirmed that Beyond’s TV presence on the West Coast would cease.
Separately, Beyond has inked a deal with Evolution Technologies to distribute its library over the latter’s broadband network Down Under. The first channel will be a science and docu service, while plans are afoot for drama channels to utilize Beyond’s library of 6,000 TV hours and 150 films.
