Video Interview with Red Arrow’s Jan Frouman

NEW YORK: Red Arrow’s chairman and CEO, Jan Frouman, who was recently appointed to ProSiebenSat.1’s executive board, talks to World Screen about his disciplined approach to investing in companies and his strategy for forming partnerships that provide access to talent.

Red Arrow Entertainment Group is the international production-and-distribution arm of ProSiebenSat.1 Media, one of Europe’s major media companies. With 16 production companies in seven countries, Red Arrow has established itself as a leading independent producer and distributor of scripted dramas and comedies, unscripted and factual programming, formats and feature films, as well as digital content.

Frouman has been steadily expanding the company’s footprint, acquiring stakes in production companies and forging partnerships with producers. The strategy behind every deal is to add to the group’s output of product and increase the chances of finding a show that will cross borders and become successful in multiple territories. Even more important, though, Frouman is looking for like-minded producers with whom he can build long-term creative relationships.
