Former Scott Free executive Ed Rubin is heading up the new London-based TV arm of US production company New Regency.  

New Regency Television International will focus on high-end global scripted content. Former Ink Factory employee Emma Broughton is joining the team as head of scripted. Rubin started his role as head of new regency television international this month.

The move follows news last October that New Regency was establishing an international sales team in London, which is focused on films and headed up by former Lionsgate executive Charlotte Thorp. She is understood to be expanding her team.

Rubin left Scott Free in January this year following changes to that company’s TV business. He was previously at Origin Pictures and his credits include The Sense Of An Ending.

In his new role, Rubin is overseeing the development and funding of projects from inception, as well as seeking to partner on projects from other producers.

“As we continue to explore various formats and distribution platforms for our deep library along with newly produced product, our direct expansion into international television production is the next strategic step,” said Yariv Milchan, chairman of New Regency.

New Regency’s upcoming feature slate includes James Gray’s Ad Astra and Greta Gerwig’s Little Women.
