Brimm fills TF1 USA post

Exec teams with Issock to find English-lingo pics

Former ICM agent Tracy Brimm has been appointed president of co-productions and acquisitions for TF1 USA, the L.A.-based division of TF1 Intl., the foreign sales subsidiary of leading European broadcaster TF1, which is headed by Jean Louis Capra and Didier Sapaut.

Brimm, who will be based at TF1 Intl.’s Beverly Hills offices, will be seeking English-language projects for the company to acquire and co-produce and expanding links with U.S.-based producers and talent. Brimm will be teaming up with departing TF1 USA president Jean-Charles Levy, who will be working out of the TF1 Intl. offices in Paris, where he will be expanding his functions to cover the financing of European co-productions.

Dorian Issock, recently promoted to head of development in Los Angeles, will work with Brimm in looking for projects for the company.

During her tenure at ICM, Brimm worked with international motion picture writers and directors, including Nigel Cole, Thomas Vinterberg, Sofia Coppola and Alison Maclean, and actively participated in independent film financing and packaging.

TF1 Intl. has most recently been involved in producing and financing James Ivory’s “The Golden Bowl,” starring Kate Beckinsale and Nick Nolte, in partnership with Miramax, and Rod Lurie’s “The Contender,” starring Jeff Bridges, released domestically by DreamWorks.

Company also has recently completed production on “Tempted,” directed by Bill Bennet and starring Saffron Burrows and Burt Reynolds, and “Scenes of the Crime,” helmed by Dominique Forma, starring Jeff Bridges.

Current projects in development include the next Patrice Chereau English-language pic to star Al Pacino, and the gritty actioner “The Woman Trap,” based on the bestselling comic series by Enki Bilala, produced by Telema’s Charles Gassot.
