PARIS — French exec Benoit Louvet has been tapped prexy of Paris-based sales company TF1 Intl. and its subsidiary, TF1 Droits Audiovisuels, which specializes in the acquisition and sale of TV titles as well as film distribution in France.

Louvet joined TF1 Group’s advertising department in 2003, and was named VP of acquisitions and distribution rights for TF1 DA last October.

He has upped Daniel Preljocaj to CEO of TF1 Intl. and TF1 DA.

Preljocaj joined TF1 Intl.’s financing department in 1995 and was named CEO of TF1 Video a year ago.

Louvet replaces film vet Patrick Binet, who ankled in September after TF1 DA’s loss in Spike Lee’s “Miracle at Santa Anna” court case in July.

TF1 DA was ordered to pay €33.2 million ($45.8 million) to Lee and his partners for failing to honor its distribution agreement for the pic.

During his nine-year tenure at TF1 Group, Binet helped finance and sell abroad such hits as Marion Cotillard starrer “La vie en rose.”

Founded in 1995, TF1 DA ranks among France’s leading film distribs through its 34% stake in UGC Distribution.

TF1 Intl.’s most recent acquisitions include Arjun Rose’s urban thriller “Demons Never Die” and Dakota Fanning starrer “Now Is Good.”
