4AM Film Studios drama Something Undone

Germany’s Beta Film and industry veteran Danny Goldman have joined forces to launch Omega Global Media, a London-based distribution business focusing on a selection of English-language TV series.

Omega Global Media’s first project is Canadian crime series Something Undone, starring Billy Campbell (Cardinal) and Amanda Brugel (The Handmaid’s Tale).

Omega said it will co-finance and distribute English-language dramas beyond the constraints of the conventional studio, network and streaming business models.

The company will be headed by Goldman, a former Sony Pictures Television and Miramax executive and who was MD of his own boutique distributor and consultancy Goldridge Media.

Goldman has previously been involved in the distribution of series including Breaking Bad, Damages and Seinfield. Munich-based Beta Film is the producer and distribution group behind series including The Swarm and Babylon Berlin.

In Something Undone (10×30’), two true crime podcasters delve into some seemingly satanic family murders of the 1980s, only to encounter parallels to other unsolved murders from that era and a serial killer being protected by sinister forces.

The series, produced for CBC Gem in Canada, has already been licensed by ITVX in the UK, SBS in Australia, TV4 in Sweden and MTV in Finland through pre-sales. It is produced by 4AM Film Studios and Little Mama Media and jointly distributed worldwide by Omega Global Media and Beta Film.

Goldman said: “TV distribution is a cyclical business. Nevertheless, passionate, gripping stories continue to entertain global audiences. As we enter the next phase of distribution, with a return to the importance of international finance and partnerships, the time felt right to launch a business that can deliver on that potential.”

Oliver Bachert, chief distribution officer at Beta Film, added: “Building upon Beta’s legacy of successful English-language content, we are pleased to embark on this new distribution venture, Omega Global Media, in partnership with industry expert Danny Goldman. Our dedication and aligned vision will surely deliver additional compelling new drama to the international market.”
