Distrib shuffles, expands international unit
CANNES — L.A.-based producer-distributor Reveille is expanding its international division, naming Chris Grant VP and head of the new unit and adding longtime TV exec Glasia Whang, formerly of NBC Intl., to the ranks as consultant for Asia.
John Pollak is being promoted to director of international distribution and creative affairs, Todd Cohen becomes director-creative affairs exec and Curtis Greenwood coordinator for the new unit.
Reveille unveiled a slew of deals at Mipcom. It will make a localized version of NBC’s diet reality show “The Biggest Loser” for Australia with the Ten Network, which will strip it daily.
CEO Ben Silverman also unveiled three third-party deals inked with producers to sell their products abroad.
These are “World Cup Comedy” (Grammnet Prods. and Nelson Page Entertainment), a one-hour improv series exec produced by Kelsey Grammer and Wayne Nelson Page; “Runway Moms” (Engel Entertainment), a look at Expecting Models, the world’s only agency devoted to repping models during their pregnancies; “The Office Temps” (Lone Eagle Prods.), a comedic look at temporary office employment.
