WarnerMedia has further bolstered its European offering by hiring Clémentine Bobin, Drama Commissioning Editor at Arte France, to oversee the development and creative production of HBO Max originals in France as Senior Creative Executive. Based in Paris, Bobin will work closely with Vera Peltekian, the recently appointed VP and Commissioning Editor of Original Production, France.
“Clémentine brings a wealth of experience in producing world-class stories which resonate in France and beyond. Her appointment is a major milestone in building our development capability in France,” Peltekian commented.
As Drama Commissioning Editor and Executive Producer at public broadcaster Arte France, Bobin worked across miniseries and single dramas including Amit Cohen and Ron Leshem’s “No Man’s Land” (Arte/Hulu), Arnaud Malherbe’s “Moloch,” and Torleif Hoppe’s “DNA” (TV2 Danmark/Arte).
The streaming service HBO Max is currently live in 46 territories across the Americas and Europe, with plans to launch in a further 21 European territories - including France - in 2022.
