RDF rebrands as Zodiak Media Group

Former rights divisions of RDF and Zodiak merge to become Zodiak Rights.

Zodiak Entertainment and RDF Media Group are rebranding under a new group banner.

The move follows the acquisition of RDF by Zodiak, which was completed in June.

The new company brings together production and rights companies from across Europe, the US, South America and Asia.

In addition, RDF YSA has merged with Zodiak Entertainment US to become Zodiak USA, while the former rights divisions of RDF and Zodiak are becoming Zodiak Rights, with operations continuing in London and Paris.

Grant Mansfield becomes CEO of Zodiak USA and Matthew Frank will be CEO of Zodiak Rights.

"The rebranding of the group and the move to a new divisional structure based on the Zodiak name, will enable us to operate more effectively as a group and leverage greater value from the scale of our combined businesses and our geographical spread," said David Frank, CEO of Zodiak Media Group.
