Lumina is delighted to announce the placement of Shane Murphy as the Managing Director, International for Acorn Global Enterprises – a subsidiary of RLJ Entertainment. Shane has a solid background in acquisitions and development – particularly around scripted content – having previously worked as Commercial Director at Tiger Aspect and, more recently, Head of UK Co-Production and Development at Deadpan Pictures.
RLJ Entertainment is an independent international licensee and distributor of entertainment content and programming, with a direct presence in the UK, North America and Australia. The company distributes more than 5,000 exclusive titles in numerous genres (with a particular interest in British productions) and releases its programming in various formats including DVD, Blu-ray, digital download and broadcast television, as well as theatrical releases.
Working out of RLJ’s central London office, Shane will seek out new opportunities for RLJ Entertainment to work with the UK drama business, aiming to expand upon their impressive array of popular British drama content.
We wish Shane well in his new position. With his established reputation on the British scripted scene, he is sure to bring great expertise and assurance to the role.
