Perrin, Langenberg to Lead Endemol Shine’s International Formats Business

LONDON — Global production and distribution giant Endemol Shine Group, which was formed through the merger of Endemol, Shine and Core Media, has restructured its international formats business.

Lisa Perrin, managing director of Shine Network, will become managing director of Endemol Shine Creative Networks, which will provide “creative and production support” to the company’s formats. The division will be run out of the company’s headquarters in Amsterdam.

Perrin will “manage and coordinate the exchange of new ideas, creativity and IP across Endemol Shine Group’s network of companies around the world as well as supporting and guiding local adaptation of formats in new markets,” a statement said. Perrin will report directly to Tim Hincks, Endemol Shine Group president.

Endemol Shine Group’s format sales and acquisitions business will be managed separately, with global head of format distribution Ana Langenberg reporting to group commercial officer Boudewijn Beusmans.

Langenberg’s responsibilities include overseeing international sales and acquisitions of both scripted and non-scripted formats, as well as supporting the roll out of formats to territories where Endemol Shine Group has local production bases. Her team operates separately from the recently announced combined distribution arm, Endemol Shine Intl., which focuses on the sale of finished programs.

Endemol Shine Group has creative operations in more than 30 markets, with a portfolio of more than 600 revenue-generating formats across scripted and non-scripted genres, coupled with digital, gaming, and distribution operations. The portfolio includes “Big Brother,” “Deal or No Deal,” “Man vs. Food,” “Masterchef,” “One Born Every Minute,” “So You Think You Can Dance,” “The Biggest Loser,” “The Money Drop” and “Wipeout.”

Perrin first joined Shine in 2009 as creative director at Shine TV, before becoming creative director of Shine Network. Prior to Shine, Perrin was head of entertainment commissioning at UKTV, and was director of popular factual at Tiger Aspect. Earlier in her career, Perrin was an executive producer at the BBC’s in-house entertainment department and at Endemol. Perrin was appointed as managing director, Shine Network last year.

Langenberg first joined Endemol in 1998 and went on to become senior licensing manager in 2001, then senior manager, format distribution in 2004. Langenberg has led Endemol’s format distribution since 2010.

Iris Boelhouwer, who has to date overseen Endemol’s creative and format distribution teams, will leave in the summer after more than 20 years’ at the company.
