Jobst Benthues has renewed his contract at Redseven and will stay at the German prodco until 2020.
Benthues founded Redseven nine years ago having had various positions within ProSiebenSat.1, its ultimate parent company, including head of entertainment and deputy MD.
“I am delighted to remain a long-term part of the Red Arrow family and to further drive Redseven’s successful future,” Benthues said. “In addition to our strong non-scripted portfolio, we want to increasingly produce serialised content and expand our corporate TV business.”

“He is a well-respected industry expert and knows exactly how to attract audiences with his shows.”
