London-based indie producer Woodcut Media is rolling out a new international sales arm: Woodcut International.
The new entity will support the prodco’s catalog of approximately 100 hours of programming, with select new series such as Sky Crime UK’s The Beverley Allitt Tapes and library titles that include The Ivy, Defenders of the Sky, Football: A Brief History by Alfie Allen, and Murders That Shocked the Nation.
Woodcut Media will continue to work with existing and new third-party distributors on other in-house productions.
The launch is overseen by Woodcut Media’s director of business development, Koulla Anastasi (pictured), and supported by parent company Anthology Group’s COO, Polly Benton. Anastasi will oversee a team of experienced international sales agents around the world.
Kate Beal, co-founder & CEO, Woodcut Media said in a statement: “We’ve been focused on cementing our international relationships with commissioners and buyers and securing pre-sales on productions for a while now, so this next phase is a logical progression. The creation of Woodcut International allows us to be even more commercially, as well as editorially, collaborative with our broadcast partners.”
