Millichip leaves Zodiak Rights

Int'l TV distrib restructures biz

LONDON

Jane Millichip, managing director of the London arm of international TV distributor Zodiak Rights, is to leave in January.

Her departure coincides with the distributor’s decision to restructure its business in London and Paris on genre-based lines, rather than by country.

There will be five divisions: non-scripted programming, scripted programming, kids, digital and publishing, and clips.

From next year, all non-scripted shows will be sold out of London and all scripted fare will be repped from Paris. Zodiak Rights’ other divisions will be based in London.

The company’s slate includes crime thrillers “Braquo” and “Wallander,” starring Kenneth Branagh, supernatural thriller “Being Human,” and reality formats “Wife Swap,” “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding,” “Secret Millionaire” and “Hardcore Pawn.”

Zodiak Rights is recruiting for a head of the non-scripted division and has also appointed Sara Wookey to the new role of chief operating officer.

Wookey has held various positions at Sparrowhawk Media, Viacom-Nickelodeon, Discovery Networks and KidsCo TV, where she was director of broadcast.

Matthew Frank, CEO of Zodiak Rights, said, “This new structure and appointment is a great way to start the New Year for Zodiak Rights. Jane Millichip has been a huge asset to the company and I am very sorry to see her leave. She has been my wing-woman and support over many years, and life will seem very strange without her. “
