Based in Los Angeles, New York and Beijing, Metan Global Entertainment Group (Metan) has extensive experience, resources, and connections, in Hollywood, China, and the global media market. Metan is a very modern take on how media companies must structure in today rapidly changing business landscape. No longer is content distributed over a single technology and no longer is the United States the totally dominant marketplace for content. 

Metan has embraced these changes while many companies continue to fight the inevitable. We create content that is designed to take advantage of all modern technologies  and maximize revenues and profits across all. All Metan business verticals recognize the changes in distribution, ecommerce, social media. Further Metan is the first company to design new content services or business models which it develops and tests in emerging markets such as China and India (under very favorable economic circumstances ) and then deploys those in global markets.

Metan management team is ideally suited to carry out this strategy as its top executives are not only well respected in traditional media but also recognized widely as pioneers in new technologies and new markets. Marty Pompadur is the former Chairman of Newscorp Europe and spearheaded the expansion into Russia, eastern Europe and Asia. Larry Namer is the Founder of E! Entertainment TV which is the world first truly global network servicing over 120 countries. He is also widely recognized as one of the leading experts on how technology changes the fundamentals of the media business and has provided consulting services to such companies as Microsoft, Sirius, Echostar, Radio Shack. Jean Zhang has 10+ years in international business experience between China and the United States. She is the founder of AmeriLink Group.
