Leonine is the name of the holding company arising from the merger of the former Tele München Group, Universum Film, i&u TV and Wiedemann & Berg Film. The holding and, from January 2020, also other units of the company will operate in the market under the LEONINE brand.

LEONINE Holding, which is led by Chief Executive Officer Fred Kogel, Chief Operating Officer Dr. Markus Frerker, Chief Financial Officer Joachim Scheuenpflug and Chief Distribution Officer Bernhard zu Castell, is bundling LEONINE’s business into the three areas that represent the company's value chain: LEONINE Production, LEONINE Distribution and LEONINE Licensing.

The production companies, such as Wiedemann & Berg Film, Odeon Film and i&u TV, the established television brand TELE 5 as well as the SVOD channels Filmtastic, Home of Horror and Arthouse CNMA will retain their previous names. As an associated company and strong established brand, RTL II will also remain unaffected by a renaming. The other distribution and licensing companies will operate under the LEONINE brand from the beginning of 2020. These include Tele München with its previous affiliates TM International, Concorde Filmverleih and Concorde Home Entertainment as well as Universum Film.
