    LOL's

    Kew have previously said that a finance director left the co. amid concerns over their accounts. How very apt if Reed (I did my research!) turns out to have been defrauded by another fraud, over a film about frauds..

    ‘Leaving Neverland’ director pulls film from Kew Media Distribution

    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.

    The documentary focuses on the detailed testimony of US two men who claimed they were sexually abused by late singer Michael Jackson.

    Reed’s decision comes after Broadcast revealed KMD’s London-based head of sales Jonathan Ford is leaving the business at the end of the month after 13 years.

    Several producers, including The Small Hand co-producer Awesome Media & Entertainment are attempting to extricate themselves from Kew in light of developments, as Broadcast reported on Monday (3 February).

    Alan Clements’ Two Rivers Media has already exited the business, along with Collins Avenue producer Jeff Collins and other major international execs such as Julie Bristow.

    Kew has been contacted for comment.

    and:

    ‘Leaving Neverland’ & ‘Line Of Duty’ Sales House Kew Media Distribution On The Brink Of Collapse

    EXCLUSIVE: Kew Media Distribution, the British sales arm of the beleaguered Canadian TV group Kew Media, is on the precipice of closure as it stares down the barrel of a winding-up order.

    Kew Media Distribution represents high-profile shows including HBO’s Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland, made by Amos Pictures, and World Productions’ hit BBC drama Line Of Duty. But after its parent company ran into trouble last year and was ordered to cease trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange, producers including Amos are fighting to claw back the money they are owed from the international sales of their shows.

    Now, in a final attempt to recover cash, film distribution company 101 Films has served Kew Media Distribution with a winding-up petition. Such a move is seen as a last resort and, if successful, will result in Kew Media Distribution being liquidated and its assets being sold off. The legal action will come to a head on March 4, when the High Court will decide whether to approve or dismiss the winding-up petition.

    Other creditors may wish to support the petition and Deadline understands that a number of companies who are owed money by Kew Media Distribution are aware of the 101 Films maneuver and are considering their options. 101 Films declined to comment on the matter.

    A winding-up petition usually leads to the company in question — in this case Kew — having its bank accounts frozen, which effectively ends its ability to trade normally. Kew Media Distribution referred questions about its status to its parent company in Canada, which declined to comment on the winding-up order.

    Kew Media Distribution has failed to file its most recent earnings for 2018, with its accounts more than four months overdue. The distributor was nearly struck off the companies register, but this action was canceled as creditors seek to recover money they are owed. Its last earnings, for the nine months to 31 December 2017, show it posted a pre-tax loss of £17.8M ($23M), while it owed creditors £223.2M ($288.8M), the majority of which was for “group undertakings.”

    According to the 2017 earnings, Kew Media Distribution employed 40 people. The company’s website shows this has grown to nearly 50 members of staff, based in both London and Los Angeles. At least one of those employees, executive vice president of sales Jonathan Ford, has left the company after 13 years this week. Kew Media Distribution says it manages the international rights to a library of more than 11,000 hours of TV and digital content, including signing a three-year deal with ViacomCBS broadcaster Channel 5 in 2018 to represent three of its dramas, such as 2019 hit Cold Call, made by Chalkboard TV.

    Kew Media Distribution’s parent company was delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange last week amid a turbulent period for the company. It follows Kew defaulting on its credit facility after former CFO Geoff Webb filed “inaccurate information regarding working capital” in financial reports. A number of its UK subsidiaries are seeking to extricate themselves from the ailing company, including Awesome Media & Entertainment and distributor TCB Media Rights.

    Kew Media Distribution was known as Content Media International until it was acquired by Kew in 2017 as part of a $104M takeover of six entertainment companies. The sales house was first established in 1995.

    Little snippet from the Weinstein trial today:

    Weinstein defense expert says memories can be distorted after the fact

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A psychology professor called by the defense as an expert witness at the New York rape trial of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein testified on Friday that people’s memories can become distorted after the fact.

    Professor Elizabeth Loftus, a human memory expert at the University of California, Irvine, told jurors that receiving misinformation about an event, trying to remember it in therapy and discussing it with law enforcement can all distort memory.

    “I’ve seen a situation where people are motivated to want to try to remember more,” Loftus said, leading them to fill in “details that feel like memories.”

    Although Loftus did not testify about specifics in Weinstein’s case, she told jurors during the second day of the defense case that strong emotions around a memory were no guarantee of its accuracy.

    “There are several studies that show false memories can be expressed with a great deal of emotion,” she said.

    You're right. In their own way, they're just as bad as Trump (save that for another conversation). This is what happens when you do people wrong. Like Mo'Nique once said, "When you do clownery, the clown comes back to bite." As a black man, it's bittersweet because I want to root for everyone's successes, but their true characters have come to light. I'm afraid Tyler Perry will be next.

    Michael, we got your back!

    Even all this controversy about Gayle King is a distraction from the real story. How much have you heard about the Harvey Weinstein trial over the last few days? Sounds to me like CBS and King have served their master well.
