Herbert L Kloiber, former MD of Germany’s Tele München Group (TMG), has launched a new media venture focusing on European film and series.

Following TMG’s sale to US venture capital firm KKR last year, Kloiber has unveiled Night Train Media, which will be active as a developer, coproducer, financing partner and distribution specialist for in-house and third-party projects.

Munich-based Night Train’s first partnership is with Nordic entertainment company NENT Group. The two will jointly develop and produce a number of English-language productions every year, to which NENT will hold first-window rights for its Viaplay streaming service in the Nordic region.

Kloiber exited TMG last year, ahead of its KKR-backed merger with Universum Film, i&u TV and Wiedemann & Berg Film to form German studio Leonine.

“I am excited to open a new exciting chapter of my entrepreneurial career with Night Train Media together with my prolific partners,” said Kloiber, who is currently building the company’s executive team. Its first projects will be announced shortly.

“With extensive experience as executive producer of high-end fictional drama series such as The Name of The Rose, The Professionals, Hidden or Sanctuary, as well as successful operational leadership of international distribution company TMI, Night Train Media is optimally positioned to succeed in this exciting time of storytelling.”
