Sierra/Engine Television: a new production and distribution company
2012.10.30 | Sierra/Affinity and Engine Entertainment have created a new production and distribution force called Sierra/Engine Television, headed by Engine CEO, Chris Philip, a veteran in both the studio and independent TV and film arenas.
The new venture is debuting at MIPCOM and combines Sierra/Affinity’s international film sales and distribution capabilities with Engine’s strength as a distributor of television programming. New projects are Georgeville Television’s Crossbones, a 10 episode order for NBC, and Hunters, a 13 episode for ABC. The announcement was made by Nick Meyer and Marc Schaberg from Sierra/Affinity, and Chris Phillip.
Sierra/Affinity recently expanded its core business to include not only the development, production, financing and international sales of filmed entertainment, but also global television distribution by partnering with Georgeville Television, run by CEO Marc Rosen. Sierra/Engine will produce and distribute its own content as well as represent that of third party providers, including Georgeville Television (Crossbones, Hunters, and Blake’s Seven for SyFy).
