“Part of our desire is to give visibility to incredible movies, and DirecTV felt our brand would help bring an upscale view to television in general,” Daphna Edwards Ziman, prexy of Cinemoi North America, told Variety.

Based in Los Angeles, Cinemoi North America is led by Ziman along with Cinemoi founder Olly Bengough and CEO and former DirecTV exec Rod Sherwood. Cinemoi launched in Europe in May 2009. The Yank rendition has been tailored for American tastes by Ziman and her team. Noreen Harrington aided in the founding of the North American version of the channel.
