Eagle Pictures has acquired Blu Yazmine, an independent production company founded by Ilaria Dallatana and Francesca Canetta in 2020, which has numerous important productions to its credit, positioning itself in about three years among the leading television production companies in Italy in the unscripted segment with no less than 16 new titles.
Eagle Pictures is the only independent Italian company that produces and distributes films and TV series in dialogue with all the audiovisual realities, both national and international, and represents in Italy some of the most prestigious American Studios such as 'Paramount' and 'Sony Pictures Entertainment'.
Tarak Ben Ammar, President and main shareholder of Eagle Pictures, states: "The acquisition of "Blu YAzmine" further expands Eagle Pictures' business in the unscripted segment in an audiovisual market that is constantly evolving. Our company confirms itself as a unique reality in the panorama of independent companies, a 'major' that produces and distributes in dialogue with all audiovisual realities, in the Mediterranean, in Europe and worldwide. We would like to welcome Ilaria Dallatana and Francesca Canetta to the Eagle Pictures family: we are sure they will continue to do an excellent job and contribute with their insight and professionalism to the growth of Eagle Pictures.
Andrea Goretti, Managing Director of Eagle Pictures adds:" "I am convinced that the production of entertainment programmes is an area with wide margins for growth and Eagle Pictures seizes this market opportunity by acquiring control of a company that in a very short time has become a reference point for the market. Personally, I am particularly happy because I will be working with Ilaria and Francesca, two great professionals, two dear friends, two women who have put Italian spirit at the heart of their entrepreneurial project".
Ilaria Dallatana, CEO "Blu Yazmine":" Together with Francesca Canetta, we founded Blu Yazmine because we wanted to get back to doing the job we like best, thinking, adapting, creating and producing entertainment content. The meeting with Eagle Pictures and its management," he adds, "represents a natural evolution for our reality, a synergic partnership due to a communion of values and intentions: a strongly 'Italian', 'creative', 'independent' spirit and the common desire to move in synergy outside the logic of large groups, with a management autonomy that we know is guaranteed together with a great drive towards growth. I would like to thank - he concludes - Chairman Tarak Ben Ammar and CEO Andrea Goretti for this opportunity, which I am sure represents just the beginning of a wonderful adventure together".
