London-based independent producer Nevision is further expanding its global reach, launching a new bi-coastal US operation Nevision Inc. This bolsters Nevision’s roster of companies following the launch of Nevis Productions in the Nordics last year.
With offices in LA and New York, Nevision Inc will be headed by Sandy Wax as President and Vincent Gabriele as COO. Nevision’s James Cabourne will be Chairman.
Nevision Inc will develop its own projects across scripted, unscripted, kids and family. Alongside this, the team will focus on developing platform partnerships, as well as securing co-production deals and presales in North America for Nevision’s and Nevis Productions’ existing slate of projects.
Wax has 30 years’ experience leading strategy and operations within major entertainment companies including NBCUniversal, Comcast, Walt Disney Company and Discovery Communications. She is a content strategist with a reputation for building brands and innovating new programme formats in multiple genres, including serialised dramas, non-fiction, kids and family.
Gabriele has an extensive track record in corporate strategy, financial analysis and planning. He has held a number of senior positions at key entertainment and sports companies with tenures at NBCUniversal, Sprout and NFL. Gabriele has most recently been advising several studios and media companies with a focus on creating content strategies. These range from development to greenlight to global distribution on terrestrial, SVoD, FAST and digital platforms.
James Cabourne, Executive Chairman at Nevision and Chairman at Nevision Inc, said: “Having established ourselves in the UK and Europe, the USA is a natural evolution into another key market for Nevision. Partnering with Sandy and Vinny to create Nevision Inc is a perfect complement to our creative teams in both Scandinavia and the UK. We are delighted to be joined by our new colleagues to share relationships and opportunities for our collective slate of projects across scripted, factual and kids and family programming.”
Wax added: “The proliferation of streaming services has accelerated the globalisation of content across all genres. In addition to developing our own content, we are excited to be working with such an impressive group of creatives at Nevision and Nevis, working collaboratively to connect the company’s slate of shows with North American partners.”
Gabriele said: “Having worked in partnership with Nevision over the last five years and cementing a long-standing relationship with Sandy, I am energized by the potential to expand into the US, working with teams of such caliber both in London and in the Nordics.”
