Charlie Ebersol, Israel’s Dori Media Set Production Venture

Producer Charlie Ebersol has teamed with Israel’s Dori Media on a joint production and financing venture that aims to distribute unscripted and scripted programming in the U.S. and international markets.

The partnership between Ebersol’s banner, the Company, and Dori Media will develop and produce four new pilots per year for distribution both overseas and in the United States.

This will be the first international business venture for Ebersol (pictured). The Company has previously focused on the U.S., with unscripted formats on major cable and broadcast networks as well as some feature films.

The selected pilots will come from a combination of internally developed projects and inbound third party concepts from both Israel and the United States. Dori Media will produce in Israel, Argentina, and Asia, while the Company will produce in the U.S. with Dori Media distributing formats worldwide.

The deal will see the Company grow its production slate globally, with the goal of creating an international production pipeline that will enable rights retention for producers both in the United States and Israel.

Dori Media, an international group of media companies, located in Israel, Switzerland, Argentina and the U.S., produces and distributes TV and new media content, owns and broadcasts various TV channels and operates video-content Internet sites.

Deal marks another example of the flood of foreign investment flowing into unscripted production companies in the U.S. Ebersol has been courted by prospective buyers for his company but he’s opted to remain independent and expand internationally through the Dori partnership, which does not involve any exchange of equity in Ebersol’s company.
