The former senior VP of acquisitions and coproductions in North America for Cineflix Rights is launching his own content development, financing and executive producing company.

Anthony Kimble, who left the UK-based distribution arm of Cineflix recently after five years, will debut his new company, Fugitive Content, at Series Mania in Lille next week with two new shows, including Alex Gibney’s latest project.

Working across scripted, unscripted and formats, Kimble will initially represent projects from his first international clients, Australia’s Essential Media Group (Jack Irish, Saving Mr Banks) and Topic (Spotlight, Risk), the storytelling brand and entertainment studio from US-based First Look Media and Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions.
