Former Enlight Pictures Head Zhang Zhao Joins LeTV

Beijing’s subscriber fee-based Hulu clone LeTV has hired Zhang Zhao, formerly head of Enlight Pictures, to head up a new feature film division, the Chinese producer said on Tuesday.

Zhang, who produced Chinese hits such as the All’s Well That Ends Well films (2009-10), told The Hollywood Reporter that he would announce the new Le Vision Pictures’ first five-year plan, including tie-ups with partners in Hollywood, in the coming months.

“LeTV has produced a few films but they wanted to get deeper into the film business and expand their international connections,” Zhang said. “I’m interested in their Internet business but my job is to build up the infrastructure of the Le Vision Pictures.”

Using “le,” one Chinese word for entertainment as a key part of its name, LeTV started up in 2004 and went public on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in 2010.
