Founder and CEO
Mr. Kimmelman is the founder and Chief Executive Officer
of Global Telemedia, Inc. He has more than 35 years
of experience in all aspects of the entertainment and
media industries. As a former producer of the Emmy
Awards, he was a creative force behind the distribution
of “Inside the Actors Studio,” which is
seen in 94 million American homes on Bravo and in 125
countries, and has been recognized with a record seventeen
Emmy nominations. His production credits also include
a variety of major live events and specials,
including the 200th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty,
the 40th Anniversary of the United Nations and, most
recently, GREEN MINUTE a new series about the environment
and global warming, currently airing all over the world.
Mr. Kimmelman began his professional career as an actor
at the age of 11. His acute interest in music led him
into the music industry where he worked with several
major labels including Capitol, Elektra and ABC/Dunhill
records and artists including Jimmy Buffet, The Doors,
Carly Simon, Steely Dan, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
and Electric Light Orchestra. He was the manager for
a band called SHOOTING STAR which was the first American
band personally signed by Richard Branson to the Virgin
label in the USA. During the 1980’s, he was a
pioneer in recognizing the commercial importance between
the marriage of music and video for broadcast over
media distribution systems. From his innovated work
in the development of some of the first music videos
with bands such as KISS, he applied that experience
to the nascent satellite communications business. While
working for Reuters, he developed media concepts for
its commercial satellite business, creating the “video
news release" and popularizing “video conferencing.” Many
Fortune 100 companies as an integral part of their
public relations programs use these concepts extensively.
Mr. Kimmelman then worked on a television series utilizing
the Reuter's library in London, entitled THIS DAY IN
HISTORY. This innovative series, which is still on
the air, helped launch his international distribution
A former Governor and present member of the The National
Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and member
(inactive) of the Director's Guild of America, Mr.
Kimmelman is also a member of the International Television
Association, the National Association of Television
Program Executives and a Free and Accepted Mason. He
has received 8 Gold and 12 Platinum Record Albums,
has appeared in 4 feature films, and once was even
a contestant on the "Dating Game"! He holds
a B.A. in Communications from American University and
a M.S. from Columbia University and currently lives
with his family in Massachusetts.

Producers, Writers, Developers , Packagers...
Your work speaks for itself! Certainly how you would want to market
your series to the international market must be as well thought
out and planned. There would need to be a commitment from a distributor
who understand this and can work in an environment to devote the
time and focus needed to present this series in a way that speaks
with integrity and purpose.
The value of the international broadcast market has been estimated
at roughly $4.5 billion, and about 70% of the programming sold
is produced in the United States. Our estimate is that 75% of the
value comes from scripted programming (dramas, sitcoms, and comedies)
and 25% from unscripted programming such as factual, reality lifestyle
and pop culture. International sales are frequently responsible
for generating greater profits for the producer than the original
productions fees. With the development of new platforms such as
Video On Demand, Broadband and Mobile, there is a wider revenue
stream that can also introduce producers to new contacts for co-productions.
Producers should select a company that compliments their vision
but also has access to buyers through working with them on a "local" level
as well as from a centralized location. Global Telemedia has a
network of affiliated agents that we work with in key regions throughout
the world. We have pioneered unique ways to position your programs
and seek out the most appropriate markets in which to target our
You must consider the size of the company you select. Large companies
can take advantage of its size in the market, but if for example
a large company develops and produces it's own content they may
want to focus on selling it before your shows. We represent independent
producers with unique programs and treat each project in a dedicated
focused approach. There is never a "throw it against the wall
and see if it sticks" philosophy. Each project is planned
and designed to compliment the producers "vision" as
it relates to the market.
Combining our knowledge, experience and personal contact with our
clients and suppliers, your show will get maximum exposure in the
market on several platforms.
