About Premium Content, a Paris-based independent production and distribution company, is rebranding as APC Studios, regrouping APC, APC Kids, animation company Zephyr and any future fiction production labels.
Six animated projects and a live-action series are currently in development at APC Studios’ Zephyr. The company’s scripted slate includes 12 shows in English and local languages that originated from the U.S., the U.K., Denmark, South Africa, Finland, Switzerland and France.
APC Studios will participate in development funding, editorial development and the overall financing strategy for each of the new shows. It will also handle global sales on a case-by-case basis.
Emmanuelle Guilbart and Laurent Boissel, joint CEOs and co-founders at APC, said: “We had always planned to develop into production but had chosen to first establish a solid and agile global distribution operation. It is now the right time to accelerate the development of our production activities. We are rebranding as a mini studio to further solidify our commitment to developing and financing projects with both local and global appeal. We will apply the same selectivity and tailor-made approach to the production that has made our success in international sales.”
