Well-seasoned German exec Klaus Zimmermann, whose credits include Tom Fontana’s “Borgia,” has joined Daniel March’s L.A.-based Dynamic Television as managing partner.
Zimmermann will spearhead the launch of two European offices, in Berlin and Paris. Dynamic Television bowed last October at Mipcom.
Zimmermann parted ways with Atlantique Prods., the drama production arm of Lagardere Entertainment, in September.
While at Atlantique, Zimmerman developed and produced higher bracket, ambitious English language shows, such as “Borgia” for Canal Plus, as well as “Transporter,” based on Luc Besson’s action franchise, for M6; and Rene Balcer’s Paris based crime series “Jo,” toplining Jean Reno, for TF1.
Prior to Atlantique, Zimmermann co-founded Zen Prods., where he produced a flurry of international miniseries including the BAFTA TV-nommed “The Sinking of the Laconia” with German pubcaster ARD, U.K. pubcaster the BBC and Canal Plus. The exec was previously in charge of international film production and acquisitions at Munich-based Kirch Group.
Zimmermann is currently involved in Bobby Moresco’s “100 Code”- the Sweden-based thriller skein starring Dominic Monaghan and Michael Nyqvist — as exec producer.
