Peace Point Entertainment Group has launched a global distribution arm, Peace Point Rights.

The indie has hired Eric Muller, most recently VP of international sales at European distributor Powercorp International, to serve as VP of international sales and acquisitions at Peace Point Rights.

Muller will be joined by Julie Chang, who will serve as VP of business affairs and North American acquisitions. Chang was most recently VP of business and legal affairs with Behind the Scenes Services.

Peace Point CEO Les Tomlin (pictured above), said expanding into distribution is a natural extension for an indie producer 10 years in the business.

He added that Muller will use his international contacts to supply programming to foreign broadcasters, while Change will bring her “tremendous business acumen and a natural eye for exceptional content.”

The Peace Point Rights slate includes 40 half-hours of Bake with Anna Olson, a lifestyle series hosted by TV chef Anna Olson; and SuperBodies, a factual series that explores the athleticism of the human body.
