Jack Watson (pictured), formerly of London-based prodco Pilot Film and Television Productions, has joined content producer-distributor DRG as sales manager for Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
At Pilot, Watson served as sales manager across broadcast and in-flight, finding international homes for the company’s travel and history content, including Empire Builders, Great Railway Journeys of Europe and Globe Trekker.
Prior to that role, he spent more than four years working in A&E Network’s London-based sales team, covering the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. Watson will report to Adam Barth, commercial director at DRG, a division of Nordic Entertainment Group.
“From its original commissions and breadth of producer clients to new commercial activities and interesting projects with parent company NENT Group, DRG remains one of the more interesting and dynamic business operating in the sector today,” Watson said in a statement.
