After more than two decades with the company he founded, Pascal Breton has stepped down from his position as CEO of Zodiak Media-owned Marathon Images. Philippe Alessandri (pictured) will assume the role of CEO in addition to his current role as CEO of Tele Images Productions.
Breton founded the French production company in 1990 alongside Olivier Brémond, who left the industry in 2006. Breton will continue to work with Zodiak Media while producing the series Sous le Soleil de Saint-Tropez and the international coproduction Versailles (in coproduction with Capa Drama). He will pursue personal projects and concentrate on being an independent producer.
Marathon Images encompasses the production companies Marathon and GTV.
Meanwhile, Yann Chassard, who is currently preparing Summer Camp‘s third season for TF1, will develop his own label, Dramatik, within Marathon Images.
