Kabo launches new TV formats distribution arm
| 24 November 2014
Paris-based production company KABO Family is expanding its capabilities with the launch of a new TV distribution arm.
Kabo International LogoKABO Family is responsible for the production of formats such as Our Crazy Family, which is currently in production for Season 4 on French broadcaster M6. To be headed by Arabelle Pouliot-Di Crescenzo as managing director, in partnership with Alain Kappauf and Christian Baumard, co-presidents of KABO Family, the new KABO International will focus exclusively on the worldwide distribution of KABO Family's high-volume scripted and comedy formats, as well as hand-picked third-party formats.
"I have been working in the formats business for quite a while now, and over the past several years I have been tracking KABO's success in the formats production sector," Pouliot-Di Crescenzo commented. "The opportunity to join forces and launch their distribution division ties in perfectly with my own mission to bring high quality programmes to a global audience. They are a great company with a unique vision, and I am pleased to be part of their team."
"For a while now we have been getting calls enquiring about our formats, so the launch of an international distribution arm makes sense and aligns perfectly with our business strategy," added Baumard. "Arabelle was the perfect candidate to create this partnership with, as her expertise and solid reputation in the formats sector spans 17 years, and as such, we very much look forward to bringing the KABO International formats to new audiences worldwide."
