Universal Music is shaking up the part of its company that focuses on film, TV, podcast and short-form audio and video content. It has launched a new division, Mercury Studios, to focus on all this – while at the same time sunsetting its Eagle Rock Entertainment production arm as an active brand.
MBW reported that former BBC executive Alice Webb will lead the new division, moving across from her current role as CEO of Eagle Rock. “Mercury will be about bold ideas, exciting new talent but above all compelling visual storytelling, all of which will be demonstrated with the exciting projects we will be announcing over the coming weeks,” promised Universal Music UK boss David Joseph.
