Tony’s comprehensive experience in digital and linear distribution, format development, and co-production, alongside his established relationships with clients across Asia and globally, will ensure we can continue to optimise opportunities within our current client network as well as secure and grow new business.”

Tony Ziran Tang added, “I’m thrilled to join All3Media International’s talented team – few positions give the opportunity to manage rights to such a varied line-up of high-quality scripted and non-scripted titles from a host of the world’s most acclaimed producers. The Asia-Pacific region offers myriad destinations for premium finished content on TV, digital and home entertainment platforms as well as strong potential for strategic collaborations on both international and local productions. I’m looking forward to building on All3Media International’s fantastic reputation in Asia and bringing more of the company’s innovative shows and formats to screens across the region.”
