Former Endeavor Content executive Gary Marenzi is building out Cartel Studios International, working alongside former CBS and Viacom executives Giovanni Pedde and Stephen Tague.
The new venture will focus on the international distribution and licensing of Cartel’s content, which spans independent movies and TV series, and includes more than 25 new films and series a year. There are also opportunities for collaboration, co-productions, co-financing and content development with international buyers, the company has said.
“Cartel has grown tremendously over the last decade to fill the growing and diversifying content needs of the global industry. We’ve been selling content internationally through third party distributors, and the next logical step is launching Cartel Studios International to work directly with our global customers in delivering premium programming,” said Stan Spry,
