Sky Group CEO Jeremy Darroch Tapped for Variety’s Achievement in Intl. TV Award at MipTV

Sky group chief executive Jeremy Darroch will be honored with Variety’s 2016 Achievement in International Television Award at MipTV in Cannes on April 4.

The award is presented to individuals who exhibit leadership, creativity and innovation in the global television marketplace. It is the highest award Variety bestows on an international TV executive.

Jeremy led Sky’s evolution into Europe’s leading entertainment company after it completed the acquisition of Sky Italia and Sky Deutschland. Europe’s entertainment giant now serves 21 million customers across Italy, Germany, Austria, the U.K. and Ireland.

Revenue has risen while creatively Sky’s content output has soared as it has become Europe’s leading investor in content with its own growing slate of original productions.

Variety executive editor Steven Gaydos said: “Sky has blazed a trail in Europe’s entertainment sector and it is a highly valued partner to producers and distributors in Hollywood and the international business. Our award reflects the tremendous achievements of Jeremy Darroch and his team.”

Darroch will participate in a Q&A with Variety in the Grand Auditorium at MipTV prior to receiving the award, which will be followed by an invite-only cocktail reception.

Past honorees of Variety’s Achievement in International TV Award include Anke Schaeferkordt and Guillaume de Posch, co-CEOs of RTL Group, and Adam Crozier, CEO of ITV.

MipTV runs April 4-7 in Cannes, France. The television confab includes keynotes from such media luminaries as writer Harlan Coben; Vivendi Content president and Havas Media managing director Dominique Delport; Richard Dickson, president and COO, Mattel; and de Posch. MipTV will also host the world premiere of the A+E Studios reboot of miniseries “Roots.”
