Veteran producer Hilary Bevan Jones has been involved with such British TV shows as Blackadder, Cracker and State Of Play. In 2006, she won an Emmy for HBO’s The Girl In The Café, written by Richard Curtis – whose 2009 feature The Boat That Rocked she produced for Working Title. From 2006-2008 she was also chairman of BAFTA; the first woman to hold the position in 60 years. Her slate at Endor includes projects involving Curtis, Neil Gaiman, Lenny Henry and Julian Farino. Endor is also producing William Boyd drama Restless for the BBC and starring Hayley Atwell. The acquisition of Endor by Red Arrow comes just ahead of the Mip-TV market, where Red Arrow will take over selling Endor’s programs and formats through its distribution arm, SevenOne International. Red Arrow group managing director Jan Frouman said: “We jumped at the chance to partner with a producer of Hilary’s stature, reputation and sheer likability. She is a tier-one producer in a must-have market. Getting this done was a no-brainer.” Bevan Jones added, “I’m delighted to be building this partnership with one of the most dynamic media groups in the industry. Red Arrow is perfectly placed to support our exciting and ambitious slate of projects in both film and television.” Red Arrow is owned by the ProSiebenSat.1 Group and has 16 TV production companies from 9 countries under its umbrella.
