Marion Winter Joins Super RTL Acquisition Team

Winter named senior manager, programming acquisition and co-production at German family channel.

COLOGNE, Germany - Marion Winter has been named new senior manager of program acquisition and co-production at Europe's largest kids and family channel Super RTL.

Winter will buy series and shows for the German network - jointly controlled by Walt Disney Co. and German broadcaster RTL - as well as rights for Super RTL's online and mobile platforms. She will report to Super RTL's head of acquisitions and co-productions Frank Dietz.

Before joining Super RTL, Winter held numerous acquisition posts at parent network RTL and its online division RTL Interactiv.

While Super RTL's programming is heavy on kid-friendly series such as Hannah Montana and Good Luck Charlie, the Cologne-based net has long since expanded its brief and also buys more grown-up fare including Glee and Ice Road Truckers for evening slots.
