Pro7-backed Red Arrow moves into UK, eyes acquisitions

Red Arrow Entertainment, the production company owned by German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1, has launched a production company in the UK and has hired former Sky and RHI executives to run it.

The company is also looking to make a number of strategic investments in the market as it looks to grow its business in the UK.

Former Sky1  controller James Baker, who most recently worked as general manager of Al Gore-owned user generated broadcaster Current TV, will become co-managing director, alongside Joel Denton, who was president of production at TV movie producer and distributor RHI.

This follows recent deals by Red Arrow Entertainment in the US with Chris Coelen’s Kinetic Content and Belgian producer Sultan Sushi.
