Jobst Benthues to Continue as Redseven MD


Jobst Benthues, the managing director of Red Arrow Entertainment Group’s Redseven Entertainment, has committed to leading the German production company until at least 2020.

Benthues founded Redseven (Germany’s next Topmodel, Kiss Bang Love) nearly a decade ago, and oversees the company with locations in Munich and Cologne alongside Christiane Heinemann, co-managing director. Over two decades he has held a number of positions at ProSiebenSat.1, including head of entertainment and deputy managing director for ProSieben.

Jan Frouman, the chairman and CEO of Red Arrow Entertainment Group, remarked: “Since its launch nine years ago, Redseven has forged a strong reputation as the go-to production company in Germany for first-class entertainment—and this is largely thanks to Jobst. He is a well-respected industry expert and knows exactly how to attract audiences with his shows. I am thrilled to continue our partnership.”

Benthues added: “I am delighted to remain a long-term part of the Red Arrow family and to further drive Redseven’s successful future. In addition to our strong non-scripted portfolio, we want to increasingly produce serialized content and expand our corporate TV business.”
