Beta Film and industry veteran Danny Goldman have joined forces to introduce Omega Global Media, a distribution business focusing on a selection of high-end English-language TV series. Omega Global Media's first project is the gripping Canadian crime series “Something Undone,” starring acclaimed actors Billy Campbell and Amanda Brugel.
London-based Omega Global Media reflects the shared conviction of both partners to co-finance and distribute selected premium English-language dramas beyond the constraints of the conventional studio, network, and streaming models. The company will be headed by Danny Goldman, a former Sony Pictures Television and Miramax executive, and Managing Director of Goldridge Media.
Over the course of his career, Goldman has had a leading role in the distribution of many iconic TV series, including “Breaking Bad,” “Damages,” and “Seinfield.” Munich-based Beta Film, one of Europe’s leading independent Film & Television groups, stands for their long expertise in global sales, production, and financing.
“TV distribution is a cyclical business. Nevertheless, passionate, gripping stories continue to entertain global audiences. As we enter the next phase of distribution, with a return to the importance of international finance and partnerships, the time felt right to launch a business that can deliver on that potential. I have known the team at Beta for many years, and I could not think of a better partner to launch this venture with,” Danny Goldman said.
Oliver Bachert, Chief Distribution Officer of Beta Film, added: “Building upon Beta’s legacy of successful English-language content, we are pleased to embark on this new distribution venture, Omega Global Media, in partnership with industry expert Danny Goldman. Our dedication and aligned vision will surely deliver additional compelling new drama to the international market.”
