Hall, who has been with Pulse Films since 2018, was most recently Chief Operating Officer of Scripted Content, based in the company’s London offices. Hall previously was COO of Frank Spotnitz’s Big Light Productions and was head of commercial affairs for Eleven.

Gabai was previously Chief Content Officer at Vice Studios. Before Vice, Gabai was a Motion Picture Agent at WME Entertainment and the William Morris Agency.

Pulse Films will continue its legacy in producing long and short-form content covering commercials and music videos, scripted film and television series, and music documentaries.

UnTypical is the new name for the production company formerly known as Vice Studios. The company’s focus will be on global documentaries and formats. Previous work includes Max’s Bama Rush, ESPN 30 for 30: The American Gladiator Documentary, Netflix series Encounters, and the Sean Penn directed documentary film, Superpower.

VICE Studios Canada is the production entity based in Canada, focused on factual format series servicing broadcasters such as Vice TV and Bell Media’s Crave. The company has produced a number of series for the franchise “Dark Side”, including Dark of the Ring, and Dark Side of Comedy, the documentary Qanon: The Search for Q and Tales from the Territories.

Vice Studios LatAm is dedicated to highlighting Latin American and LatinX stories, specialising in documentary series and other non-scripted formats. The studio is behind Netflix shows 1994 and La Divina Gula (Heavenly Bites).

The group also includes a long-form news documentary team. Earlier this year the team was prized with the RTS Award for On-Demand Journalism Stealing Ukraine’s Children.

Bruce Dixon, CEO, VICE Media Group said: “Leveraging the strengths across our production companies under the Vice brand creates a powerful offering for producers and talent who create content that pushes the boundaries of traditional film and television. Jamie and Danny are the right leaders to drive the Studios’ business forward and lead our incredibly talented teams.”

Gabai and Hall commented: “The creation of Vice Studios Group positions us for growth, offering unique opportunities to talent and sparking collaborations whilst still remaining true to each company’s strengths and content legacies. We have over 20 productions currently filming, or in the edit, across scripted, non-fiction, news, branded and music docs giving us a robust pipeline and plenty to be excited about.”
