New Regency Establishes International TV Venture


New Regency has set up New Regency Television International, a London-based division to produce TV content for the global marketplace.

New Regency Television International will fund and develop projects from the ground-up as well as look to partner on projects from other producers. The new division will be led by Ed Rubin, who will focus on developing “high-end, authored and distinctive” scripted content from across the globe. Rubin joins New Regency from Scott Free London, where he was managing director.

Emma Broughton will also join the company, as head of scripted. Broughton previously served as head of creative at The Ink Factory.

“As we continue to explore various formats and distribution platforms for our deep library along with newly produced product, our direct expansion into international television production is the next strategic step,” said Yariv Milchan, chairman of New Regency. “We are excited to be able to hit the ground running by tapping the expertise, relationships and track record of Ed, who understands New Regency’s commitment to high-quality talent and partnerships.”

“New Regency’s brand and output speak for itself,” added Rubin. “There are few companies who consistently command both mainstream appeal and true authorship, so I couldn’t be more excited to be there at the start of New Regency Television International and bring that same world-class stamp of quality and ambition to TV drama. It’s thrilling to have the opportunity to build a slate of striking and wide-ranging projects and to create a home for the most original and exciting storytellers from around the world.”
