‘Leaving Neverland’ director pulls film from Kew Media Distribution (2020 Feb 7)


Staff member
Dan Reed’s Amos Pictures has pulled distribution of Emmy-winning Channel 4 documentary Leaving Neverland from Kew Media Distribution.

Broadcast has learned that Reed’s lawyers have sent Kew a notice stating it is taking back the rights to the HBO co-production after the Canada-listed company failed to pay several tranches of royalties to Amos.

The news follows Kew Media being issued with a cease trading order on 30 January after financial problems came to light at the end of 2019. Numerous producers are scrambling to reclaim royalties, informed sources have told Broadcast.

KMD sold Leaving Neverland to every territory around the world, bar China, with notable sales to Germany’s ProSiebenSat.1, Australia’s Network Ten and numerous other channels.
