Banijay France is pleased to announce that Jean-Louis Blot will soon be named CEO of EndemolShine Production (excluding Scripted).
Having graduated from Sciences Po, Jean-Louis is one of the most respected names in the industry. In 2008, he created BBC Worldwide Productions France, the first French subsidiary of the BBC, which he led with success and since 2016, has been behind the equally triumphant creation of Warner Bros. International Television Production France.
In his new role, Blot will be responsible for spearheading EndemolShine Production’s unscripted operations and is charged with driving creativity and a healthy pipeline of IP for the business’ local and global clients, as well as the wider group’s extensive cross-territory catalogue. An entrepreneur, producer and tastemaker, he brings a range of experience to the role and will be at the forefront of growing the organisation’s offering and bolstering its reputation in the market.
François de Brugada, CEO of Banijay France: “We are very happy to have Jean-Louis joining the Banijay adventure. For the past 10 years, he has demonstrated a strong ability in anticipating trends in the French market and strategically capitalising on growth and success opportunities. With the know-how and creativity of EndemolShine Production, the amazing tank of ideas that is the Banijay catalogue, and Jean-Louis leading, I am confident in our company’s future!”
