The Bahrain TV industry is set for development following the creation of Unisono's television and radio division, according the Gulf Daily News.
Julia Klein, who has over 25 years experience in the film and TV sector, will head operations for the new division of the creative agency in Manama. Providing international objectivity, the South African will also be responsible for extending Unisono operations throughout the Gulf, growing Bahrain's TV industry, and developing young local talent.
"We have exclusive access to top international award winning directors, including Danny Boyle, Miles Goodall, Ian Campbell and Graham Rose," said Klein.
"Our focus is not just to bring great international talent into Bahrain but also to develop world-class talent here in Bahrain, and this will form a key part of our offer. It is truly an exciting time to be in our industry here in Bahrain," she added.
Klein, whose background includes a partnership in the Giant Films production house, moved to Bahrain in 2010, where she has produced commercials and corporate content for clients including BNP Paribas, Bapco and Movenpick.
