Nevision Launches Bicoastal U.S. Operation


London-based producer Nevision has expanded its global reach with the launch of the new bicoastal U.S. operation Nevision Inc., with offices in Los Angeles and New York.

Nevision Inc. will develop its own projects across scripted, unscripted, kids’ and family. Its team will also work on developing platform partnerships and securing co-production deals and presales in North America for Nevision’s and Nevis Productions’ existing slate. Sandy Wax will serve as president.

Wax has 30 years of experience leading strategy and operations within companies such as NBCUniversal, Comcast, The Walt Disney Company and Discovery Communications. She was previously the president of Sprout, where she launched and built Comcast’s kids’ and family business. She also previously served as VP of brand strategy and research for Disney Channel.

Vincent Gabriele will serve as COO of Nevision Inc. He has held a number of senior positions at companies such as NBCUniversal, Sprout and the NFL. Most recently, Gabriele served as an adviser for several studios and media companies, with a focus on creating content strategies.

Nevision’s executive chairman, James Cabourne, will serve as chairman of the U.S. operation.

This expansion of Nevision’s reach follows its launch of Nevis Productions in the Nordics last year.

Cabourne said: “Having established ourselves in the U.K. and Europe, the U.S. is a natural evolution into another key market for Nevision. Partnering with Sandy and Vinny to create Nevision Inc. is a perfect complement to our creative teams in both Scandinavia and the U.K. We are delighted to be joined by our new colleagues to share relationships and opportunities for our collective slate of projects across scripted, factual and kids’ and family programming.”

Wax commented: “The proliferation of streaming services has accelerated the globalization of content across all genres. In addition to developing our own content, we are excited to be working with such an impressive group of creatives at Nevision and Nevis, working collaboratively to connect the company’s slate of shows with North American partners.”

Gabriele added: “Having worked in partnership with Nevision over the last five years and cementing a long-standing relationship with Sandy, I am energized by the potential to expand into the U.S., working with teams of such caliber both in London and in the Nordics.”
