In 2007, she took over the international distribution arm of Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury working with stars including Paris Hilton, Wendy Williams and Charlie Sheen. This was followed by a spell as formats and entertainment chief for MTG’s free-to-air channels. Today, Bea works as a multi-platform advisor on content, distribution and business strategy. Recently she advised Pinewood Pictures on their investment strategy into high-end scripted television and is currently working on setting up a drama production and financing company for Silver Reel Partners, the Swiss Film Fund.
