Nathalie Nennig, former sales chief for Novovision, has launched a Singapore-based distribution and acquisition company, DCB Consulting, to deal in entertainment formats and documentaries.
The company will aim to facilitate relationships between European producers and Asia-Pacific TV industry executives, and also help Western producers adapt original programming from the Asia-Pacific regions for their own countries.
DCB Consulting will officially debut at the upcoming Asia Television Forum with a catalog of 35 shows, including Beauty and the Beat, a female DJ talent show format developed by American company Imagine Productions International, for sale in Asia and the Middle East.
Nenning has signed deals to represent the French companies ADLTV, with the 8 x 26-minute documentary series Ambassadors’ Cuisine; Ah! Production’s three formats, including kids game show Battle Pass; formats from Pernal Media, including The Ugly Me; and Quadra Film Coalition’s lifestyle and wildlife documentaries.
Belgian entertainment company The New Flemish Primitives has also partnered with DCB to represent a string of formats, including sports reality format Eternal Glory, The Viewer of the Year, The Bounty Hunter, Tour Deluxe and A Dish A Day.
The Singapore start-up has also acquired rights to five series of clip shows featuring “the world’s most amazing ads” from Munich-based Dicon Media.
“With its energy, Singapore seemed the ideal location in Asia to base DCB Consulting,” said Nennig. “From there, it is very easy to reach out to the whole region. I want to remain a boutique distribution company, working closely with my partners and my clients.”
