Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman will continue to run the New York-based production group.

German-based Red Arrow Entertainment Group has taken a majority stake in Left/Right, the New York-based
production firm behind VH1's Mob Wives and Showtime's This American Life, the Emmy-winning adaptation of NPR's weekly radio series.

Left/Right heads Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman will continue to run the company they founded in 2005 and whose slate also includes reality-TV series such as AMC's Small Town Security and Home By Novogratz on HGTV.

Under the deal, Red Arrow will also handle international distribution of Left/Right formats. Red Arrow, a subsidiary of European broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1, said Left/Right would further strengthen the group's position with U.S. networks. Red Arrow already controls U.S. production houses Fuse Entertainment (Burn Notice) and Kinetic Content (Betty White's Off Their Rockers).
