The 17 Juin Media group joins Newen


Christian Gerin, founding President of 17 Juin Media, has chosen Newen, a major production and distribution player in France, to reinforce his group’s growth and bring new momentum in terms of audiovisual development.

Founded in 1992, the 17 Juin Media group has become an essential partner for French TV channels over the past few years, particularly for its proven skills in health, medical and science programmes. Thanks to Magazine de la Santé [“Health Magazine”], shown on France 5 and presented by Michel Cymes and Marina Carrère d’Encausse, the company has renewed the health programme genre and created a style that has been a success with viewers.

The 17 Juin Media group is a new independent organisation within the Newen galaxy (Telfrance, Capa, Be Aware), and represents the offer in health and science magazine programmes and documentaries that Newen lacked. Thanks to this association, 17 Juin Media will be in a position to develop new programmes while taking advantage of Newen’s skills in the fields of fiction and distribution.

MIPCOM 2011: international launch of HARRY


During the 3 days of MIPCOM in October in Cannes, both international broadcasters and buyers were welcome to play HARRY, a new gameshow of French origin.

To celebrate this event, the Newen group and the company Big Nose, co-creators of this original gameshow, took over a suite at the Majestic and attracted the interested through a targeted advertisement campaign, made up of a viral campaign, a advertisement truck on the Croisette and stickers found on the Cannes sidewalks.

Harry is much more than a word game ! In order to win, you have to think strategic but also have some luck. In fact, to prove statistics wrong and aim for victory, you need to always keep in mind the following question: how much are you willing to spend in order to win?
