Goldberger to rep ZDFE in Asia

ZDF Enterprises (ZDFE) has hired a firm launched by the former head of distribution at Spanish animation house Imira Entertainment to lead its children’s programming sales in Asia. The distribution arm of German broadcaster ZDF has picked Christophe Goldberger to oversee ZDFE.Junior’s sales in the region through his fledgling consultancy GoldBee.

Goldberger, who was also a producer at Imira, set up the distribution, production and development consultancy firm after leaving the Spanish children’s production house earlier this year.

He will be at Asia Television Forum (ATF) in two weeks’ time representing the kids’ catalogue, which includes Q Pootle 5 (52×11′), Wolfblood (26×26′) and H20: Just Add Water (78×26′).

Goldberger : “ZDFE has a great profile for Asia because its younger-skewing shows are a great mix of education and entertainment. This is the type of programming that could work really well in Asia”.
