all3media Aligns with Bon Voyage in German Drama JV


all3media Deutschland has entered into a new joint venture with Bon Voyage Films to develop and produce scripted drama.

The output from the new JV will be targeted to commercial and public broadcasters as well as OTT platforms. The serial dramas will then be distributed by all3media International.

The company is run by the actor Fahri Yardim, along with Bon Voyage founders Amir Hamz and Christian Springer. Its slate includes the Oscar-winning feature film The Counterfeiters and The Dark Side of the Moon.

Jane Turton, the CEO of all3media, commented: “Our German business run by Markus Schaeffer is a hugely important part of the group. This new venture offers us an exciting opportunity to grow our scripted drama slate in Germany and internationally in partnership with the very talented team at Bon Voyage.”

Dr. Markus Schäfer, the CEO at all3media Deutschland, added: “Bon Voyage Films stands for a high level of professionalism, as well as refreshing, unconventional creativity. I am delighted to have found these three exceptional filmmakers, Amir, Christian and Fahri, to enter into a partnership with all3media. We are confident that this joint venture has great potential to generate new impetus at both an international and national level.”

Hamz said: “Our partnership with all3media is an important strategic milestone in the as yet short history of Bon Voyage Films. It opens up the network offered by one of the largest independent international production families, providing us with an opportunity to realize our potential beyond the projects accomplished so far.”

Yardim added: “We want to be worthy new companions in a landscape of wonderful filmmakers, who can be expected to courageously interpret freedom of the arts while still being relevant, but most of all, worth watching.”

Springer commented: “In the form of all3media, we have found a well-known and reliable partner that shares our high ambitions and the demands we make on our works.”
