FILM PRODUCTIONS ARE LIVING A GOLDEN AGE, THEY DON’T NEED BILLIONS MORE, SAY BOSSES OF TV NOVA AND TV PRIMA
General Director of TV Nova Daniel Grunt and General Director of FTV Prima Marek Singer in an interview for Hospodářské noviny about levies to the cinema support fund, but also about SVOD services.
Marek Singer, the long-serving director of TV Prima, has known Daniel Grunt, the head of TV Nova, personally for 15 years. Both entered the TV business at the beginning of 2008. While Singer, an experienced manager of Unilever and Karlovy Vary Mineral Waters, took over the management of the TV duo, Daniel Grunt, seven years younger, became the director of TV Nova's internet division. In the following years, their paths merged, with Grunt managing digital media within the Prima Group for nine years, making him one of Singer's closest collaborators.
Today, they stand on the other side of the barricade, but they share more than enough common themes. For example, the government's planned increase in the levy to the State Cinema Fund for streaming services.
