Amusement Park, a Germany-based production company, has hired former Red Arrow exec Amelie von Kienlin to bolster its TV department, with a focus on domestic and international series.

Previously, von Kienlin served as senior VP of scripted acquisition and co-production at Red Arrow Studios International in London. Earlier in her career, she spent a number of years serving as head of co-production at Wild Bunch Germany and head of acquisitions for the international distribution division of Telepool (now Global Screen).

Amusement Park’s upcoming television projects include City of Night, based on the graphic novel Berlinoir, with Dennis Gansel on board to direct. The company is also working on adapting Günter Grass Blechtrommel as an event series for TV.

Malte Grunert, who founded Amusement Park in 2009, remarked: “We are delighted to welcome Amelie on board. She is a highly experienced international TV and film executive and she brings with her a unique market insight and creative talent, not to mention a formidable international network. We have high ambitions for the coming years and we look forward to taking on these challenges with Amelie as a key part of the team.”

Kienlin added: “After great years, predominately on the side of the financers, I am hugely excited to be joining Amusement Park. Malte has impressed me over the years with the high-end international feature films he’s produced. By partnering with Daniel Brühl and Klaus Dohle, he has established an exciting setup for a production company. This will be a new challenge for me and I cannot wait to start.”
