Not the music group, the film group: Universal Studios has set up a division for mobile content division, called Universal Mobile Entertainment, and consumer products executive Jeremy Laws has been tapped senior VP in charge of it. The unit will oversee licensing of U content for mobile, as well as original productions in the future. He reports to Beth Goss, exec VP of Universal Studios Consumer Products Group.
Laws will head sales group in L.A., Tokyo and London as members seek revenue opportunities in the space and closely watch how Universal properties are handled.
Laws said he would consider original video based on Universal properties, but he’s focusing on games, ringtones and licensing of existing video clips.
