Network brings sales agents in-house

Claire Bailey, Jerry Whelan and Steve Staniland will head up the new sales agent division.

UK distributor Network has added an in-house sales agency to its London office.

Formerly of FremantleMedia, Claire Bailey, Jerry Whelan and Steve Staniland will all join the company to head up its new sales agent team.

They will represent distributors including Medium Rare, Fabulous Films and WWE, as well as Network’s own catalogue.

Network’s 2015 slate includes Pablo Larrain’s Golden Globe-nominated El Club, about a collection of priests living a meagre existence in a small Chilean coastal town.

The news follows the announcement that Network has struck a deal to acquire the rights to the majority of FremantleMedia’s home entertainment catalogue, which includes television titles such as The World At War and Qi.
