Red Arrow acquires Bevan Jones’ Endor

ProSiebenSat.1 production unit growing rapidly

BERLIN — ProSiebenSat.1 continues to flex its muscle in international scripted production with the acquisition of Hilary Bevan Jones’ U.K. TV and film shingle Endor.

The deal is the highest profile yet for Red Arrow Entertainment Group, ProSiebenSat.1’s production division. Endor joins Blighty producer Mob, U.K. format and entertainment producer CPL, and U.S. company Fuse Entertainment on Red Arrow’s growing roster of international producers.

Bevan Jones has worked on a slew of award-winning TV programs, including “State of Play” and “Cracker,” BBC comedies “Not the Nine O’Clock News,” “Blackadder” and “Red Dwarf,” plus David Yates’ 2005 HBO film “The Girl in the Cafe,” starring Bill Nighy and Kelly Macdonald.

In 2006, she became chair of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the first woman in its 60-year history to hold the post.

“We jumped at the chance to partner with a producer of Hilary’s stature, reputation and sheer likability,” said Red Arrow managing director Jan Frouman. “She is a tier-one producer in a must-have market. Getting this done was a no-brainer.”

Bevan Jones added, “I’m delighted to be building this partnership with one of the most dynamic media groups in the industry. Red Arrow is perfectly placed to support our exciting and ambitious slate of projects in both film and television.”

Bevan Jones also produced Richard Curtis’ 1960s-set comedy “Pirate Radio,” starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, for Working Title Films.

Curtis is among the creative talent working on projects in Endor’s TV and film slate. Others include Neil Gaiman, Paul Mayhew-Archer, Lenny Henry and Julian Farino. Next up for Endor is BBC spy tale “Restless,” based on William Boyd’s novel and starring Hayley Atwell.

Red Arrow distribution arm, SevenOne Intl., will sell Endor’s productions.
