TVWeek.com is proud to welcome a trio of prominent executives who will be our eyes and ears on the French Riviera at this year’s MIPTV international television market.

The three companies these gentlemen represent all figure to be involved with some of the biggest deals to take place in Cannes, whether it’s program acquisition, sales, technology, or developing new platforms.

Mr. Neil Braun is president of distribution and marketing for Starz Media, a U.S. company heading to MIP for the first time. Sean Cohan is senior VP, International for A&E Television Networks and will be at the market with the goal of managing and expanding A&E Television Networks’ brands and services outside the U.S. Greg Moyer serves as general manager of Voom HD Networks, and will be at MIP to explore new avenues for his brand.

As the world gets smaller, all three of these companies figure to play bigger roles both within the United States and around the world. Their blogs will provide insights to the market that you won’t find anywhere else.

Word of Virginia Tech Tragedy Reaches Mip

Sean Cohan, AETN's Postcards from the Palais

Was so removed and locked in back-to-back meetings the past two days that I was unaware of the tragic events that occurred at Virginia Tech until this afternoon. I’m profoundly saddened and stunned by the tragedy – my thoughts and prayers go out to all the families and communities who have been affected.

On a much lighter note, at today’s market … AETN and our UK joint venture with Sky announced a carriage and VOD agreement with Telenet, further extending the penetration of our Benelux service into Belgium. In the wake of yesterday’s landmark Asia deal, lots of meetings and progress today for our brands in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Very strong program sales activity today. Our series, Ancient Discoveries, was ranked the #2 most screened program at MIP DOC last weekend! Tremendous interest in our new, improved Princess Diana Biography which was sold today in three large markets. Our Dog the Bounty Hunter hour-long specials sold in several territories across EMEA. A large package of documentaries – 80 hours – sold to a free-to-air broadcaster in Germany. In addition, we’ve made some strong progress on acquisitions and VOD deployment across our genres.

The weather here continues to smile on us amidst the darker events at home. Again, words cannot express our deep condolences to those who have been touched by this tragedy. Till tomorrow.

Sean Cohan is Senior Vice President, International for A&E Television Networks.
