Mediawan (MDW) (Paris:MDW) completed on 27 February 2019, in accordance with the agreements reached on 15 January 2019, the first step of Palomar’s final acquisition, the first independent Italian producer of TV content.

The blockbuster “The Name of the Rose”, which transmission is scheduled to start on Tuesday 5 March, becomes Mediawan’s first international series and is announced to be one of the biggest success of the year, starring famous actors such as John Turturro, Rupert Everett and Michael Emerson.

After having built its reputation in French production’s industry, Mediawan makes its first strategic acquisition outside of France. Mediawan already owns 53% of Palomar shares and should increase its stake to 72% after a second phase in the coming next weeks and the issuance of 680,000 ordinary shares. The other 28% remain in the hands of Mr. Carlo Degli Esposti, Palomar’s founder and CEO.

This stage is the beginning of the group’s international development showing its ambition to reinforce European synergies in matters of co-production and co-distribution.

Palomar currently see a very favourable momentum. Its movie “La Paranza dei Bambini” became a Silver Bear for the greatest script at the Berlin Festival, and the latest episodes of “Detective Montalbano” broadcasted on RAI1, has reach record audiences of 45%.

Palomar is the perfect example to illustrate Mediawan's strategy: be a local champion able to develop the leading international blockbusters.
