Industry Media has Signed a Retainer with Cove
Cove is a joint venture between Smuggler co-founders and Red Arrow
Germany’s Red Arrow Entertainment is launching a production outfit, Cove Pictures, with Smuggler Inc. co-founders, Patrick Milling-Smith and Brian Carmody. Led by Heather Rabbatts, Cove is set to produce high-end drama and comedy, in addition to blue-chip factual programmes for the international market. Red Arrow will own a minority stake in the company, which will have offices in London, New York and LA, and distribute its projects internationally. The new company has already secured a creative deal with the firm behind the James Bond series of films, Eon Productions, controlled by Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli: an indication of the success to come for Cove. This affiliation will involve Cove developing a number of shows for the global market.
