Los Angeles-based Abacus Insurance Brokers Inc. has selected North American Specialty Insurance Co. (a member of the Swiss Re Group) to expand its online entertainment programs.

The program includes rental houses, film schools, venues, promoters, shell corps, theatrical, pre-production and production studios, film print floaters and others. With these additions, Abacus expands the number of programs under its management from 18 to 33.

Working with North American Specialty’s Manchester, N.H., office, Abacus Insurance Brokers will serve as program manager to offer and administer the entertainment program with a view toward making coverage available in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

“Abacus has selected a carrier with deep experience in the entertainment insurance arena,” says Darren Lewin, vice president of program development, Abacus. “North American Specialty enables Abacus to significantly increase its entertainment offerings by launching new programs, expanding authorities on existing programs and filling integral coverage gaps on existing programs.”
