Larue sets up NeweN

Group comprises Capa, Be Aware, Telfrance

PARIS — French media entrepreneur Fabrice Larue is spreading his net with NeweN, a new audiovisual group handling the development, production and distribution of scripted and non-scripted TV formats and programs.

Owned by FLCP, Larue’s holding, NeweN regroups three major production houses: Herve Chabalier’s Capa, which specializes in hard-nosed docus and high-profile TV dramas such as “Braquo,” Sebastien Cauet’s Be Aware, which mainly produces factual entertainment and gameshows, and Telfrance, a leading purveyor of animation and TV drama skeins, including French hit “Life’s So Sweet.”

Larue recently launched a department dedicated to the research, acquisition and development of international formats and talent.

The division will be shepherded by Charlotte Detaille, former head of acquisitions at Endemol and Banijay, and Alexandra Crucq, who previously headed non-scripted entertainment at TF1.

Crucq said Capa has just acquired the format “21 Dias,” while Be Aware has picked up the format “Quien vive aqui?” Both are hit shows in Spain.

Meanwhile, Larue said he’s negotiating first-look deals with various international companies to buy and sell formats. These partnerships will form the NeweN Network, explained Larue.

In addition, the group has created a commercial arm, NeweN Distribution, previously known as 2001 Audiovisuel. Headed by Laetitia Recayte, the division sells many titles produced by NeweN-owned production companies, as well as third-party programs, notably “Spiral,” which is produced by Son et Lumiere.

NeweN also owns and operates a string of production and post-production facilities, notably seven studios spread between the Paris region and Marseilles.
