In his newly created position, which is based in London, Begg is expected to build partnerships with leading production talent. He will be producer liaison on content acquisitions across all genres.

Greg Phillips, the president of distribution at Kew Media, commented: “Graham’s knowledge and experience across the complete production and financing process is second to none, and we’re very pleased to secure the talents of such a well respected, successful and commercially minded executive. We’re very proud of our strong reputation on the global stage for ensuring that production companies retain a central role throughout our distribution activities. Graham’s appointment underlines our continued commitment to building on this success and will further position Kew Media Distribution as the go-to sales house for top production talent across all genres.”
Begg added: “Television content is more popular than ever with the quality and appeal of prime-time drama, event programming and signature non-scripted features and series continuing to rise across the globe. I am delighted to be re-joining Greg and his team at Kew Media Distribution at an exciting time in the company’s growth, and to play my part in their continued success as a leading producer and distributor of multi-genre content worldwide.”
