Vice Media-backed Pulse Films is expanding its non-fiction division promoting Emma Cooper to global president.
The refreshed division will put a focus on a single team for both non-fiction film and TV.
Under Cooper’s direction, the unit will focus on attracting world-class talent for director-driven series’ and feature docs, as well as responding to the resurgence of premium music docs.
Harrington was previously at A&E IndieFilms, the theatrical arm of A&E Networks.
Thomas Benski, CEO of Pulse, said: “Under Emma’s leadership our non-fiction division has found a real focus and drive to develop and produce premium film and TV for global markets.”
Pulse has also recently made a push into scripted TV with Gangs of London created for Sky Atlantic, Cinemax and HBO.
