In addition to his current role as SVP and general manager: Spain, Corral becomes entertainment content chief: EMEA.
The appointment is part of Turner's strategic move into the general entertainment arena, an increasingly important market for the company and one in which progress has already been made through channel launches such as TNT, TCM, Silver and glitz* and content initiatives such as truTV, Falling Skies and TNT Mystery Movies.
Corral, based in Madrid, will work closely with his counterparts in Turner's Asia Pacific and Latin America businesses and with Turner US in developing original content, acquiring programming on an EMEA level and developing and producing/co-producing original series and programming for all the company's general entertainment channels.
"Turner has a wide range of programming assets that go far beyond our traditional strengths in EMEA in news and kids," says Turner EMEA president Jeff Kupsky. "Domingo's role will be to develop and harness these assets around our region, drawing upon our existing structure and expertise to give them a much sharper, more strategic focus."
"I look forward to continuing our close partnership with our colleagues in the US and building on the recent success of Falling Skies," says Domingo Corral. "Ongoing expansion and consolidation through investment in original series will be key to our entertainment strategy."
