London-based rights-ownership and distribution company TCB Media Rights has appointed former Entertainment One exec Holly Cowdery to its roster of sales executives.
In her new role, Cowdrey will be responsible for handling sales across the Benelux, Central and Eastern Europe, and Middle East and North Africa territories.
“Cowdrey already has solid experience in sales, but is now looking to take that up a level. With her energy, enthusiasm and ambition, she also typifies TCB’s combative yet friendly attitude to business,” said TCB Media Rights CEO Paul Heaney in a statement. “She’ll be a great ambassador for both TCB and our rapidly expanding portfolio of producer-partners.”
Cowdrey had most recently been providing coverage for a maternity leave as a sales executive at eOne. She previously held sales positions at NBCUniversal International Television Distribution and Lionsgate.
Elsewhere, TCB Media has secured a string of deals first initiated at last month’s MIPTV market in Cannes.
The sales agent is sending CJZ’s docureality series Bondi Rescue to NRK Norway (seasons 1-9), SBS Netherlands (seasons 8-12) and CBS Reality (season 12).
TVT Production’s hour-long special Diana and the Paparazzi, which explores the late Princess of Wales’ love-hate relationship with the photographers, is heading to SBS Australia and Sky New Zealand.
Meanwhile, Foxtel Australia and CBS Reality have acquired the AMS Pictures-made Scandal Made Me Famous (6 x 60 minutes); Discovery U.S. and Italy, NTV Japan, Channel Nine Australia, and SBS Netherlands and Belgium have picked up Mark Three Media’s Boy with No Brain (1 x 60 minutes), which profiles a boy born with less than 2% brain function and spina bifida.
