Endeavor Content partner and executive vice president Lorenzo De Maio is stepping down from the company to launch his own production venture.
The L.A.-based De Maio Entertainment, announced Monday, is back by an exclusive long-term partnership deal with global TV powerhouse Fremantle.
De Maio helped the launch and growth of Endeavor Content in the premium content world, working on Emmy award-winning shows such as Killing Eve, The Night Manager and Normal People.
The Fremantle deal is designed to fast-track the start-up’s growth trajectory and will provide De Maio Entertainment with full access to the company’s global reach and range of services.
“I am extremely grateful and proud of all we have accomplished as a team at Endeavor Content, having the privilege of working with incredible producers and creators, and bringing global successes to audiences worldwide,” said De Maio. “I am always looking for new and disruptive opportunities as the business quickly develops, and now is the perfect time to launch this company in partnership with Fremantle. I really admire the vision and leadership of Jen Mullin and Andrea Scrosati and am so excited to be working with all the extraordinary producers and companies in the Fremantle ecosystem to bring exceptional and inclusive storytelling to audiences worldwide.”
Added Fremantle COO Andrea Scrosati: “Lorenzo is one of the most creative and skilled executives in the entertainment industry and his track record speaks for itself. We have known each other for a number of years, and I have always been incredibly impressed by his vision and capacity to deliver. I look forward to working closely together with Lorenzo to help bring his project to life, while I have no doubt that with his support, the Fremantle scripted and documentary slate will now accelerate and grow even faster than our already ambitious plans.”
Prior to joining Endeavor Content, De Maio was president of production at the Dino De Laurentiis Company where he was an executive on the NBC series Hannibal and a producer across its film slate.
