Imagine Nation Takes 50% Stake In Absolutely
IMAGINE Nation, the live entertainment, film and TV content company launched this week by Dutch industry veterans Robin de Levita and Kees Abrahams, has taken a 50% stake in Dutch independent format distribution specialist Absolutely Independent.
The move helps gives the nascent Imagine Nation a major kick-start towards its goal of establishing a global IP powerhouse with the capacity to develop and exploit content across multiple platforms.
Absolutely Independent is one of the oldest and most respected independent format distribution players in the business. De Levita is an award winning international TV and theatre producer and creator. Abrahams is the former president of International TV Production at Sony Pictures Television.
Abrahams is also one of the four major creative brainstormers who in the early days of the format and cross media industry broke away from Endemol to form the border breaking 2waytraffic, later acquired by Sony Pictures Entertainment.
He is currently CEO of Imagine Nation and will take up the position of co-chairman of Absolutely Independent alongside existing founder and chief executive Patty Geneste.
