The Studio Hamburg Production Group has launched a UK production arm, which will be overseen by former BFI executive Vivien Muller-Rommel.
The German production and services centre is now looking to develop and produce a slate of English-language film and TV projects for the international market out of the UK with the former BFI executive in place as its local MD.
Muller-Rommel, a former Universal Pictures International and TWC int’l production and acquisitions assistant, spent five years at the BFI working in the Film Fund and the international department.
She will be building a team out of the company’s Soho office to produce around two features and two-three TV projects per year and will report to chairman of the Studio Hamburg management board, Michael Lehmann.
“We want to make high quality commercially viable English-language film and TV content,” Muller-Rommel told Screen
