A consortium of top media and finance companies and executives are teaming with New York State Assemblyman Francisco Moya (D-39), Chair of the Commission on Science and Technology, to develop Queens MediaWorks, a new hub for non-fiction production, based in Queens, New York.
Founding partners of the project are Brent Montgomery, CEO of ITV America; Bruce David Klein, president & executive producer of Atlas Media; Richard Seet, former principal of private equity, management and financial services corporation The Carlyle Group; and Seet’s business partner, soccer legend and entrepreneur David Villa.
Conceived as a state-of-the art content and video production, commercial and retail complex, Queens MediaWorks will be designed as a cost-effective solution and alternative for New York’s primarily Manhattan-based, unscripted video content production industry. It would feature 150,000+ square feet of office and production space (and potentially more), providing a broad spectrum of jobs and creative opportunities to the borough of Queens and the surrounding New York metropolitan area.
Moya and the Queens MediaWorks partners are currently reviewing a range of Queens sites. The facility is projected to be operational in Q3 2018.
