About
Born in Paris, France, Fred started producing and hosting with his first production company, Human Rights Multimedia, a 120 minutes news talk-show entitled "Droits comme un I" (literally "Straight like an I") on global issues and human rights in 1998.

The first edition aired on 7 November 1998 in full live broadcast on a local Parisian TV. After seven editions, Frederic Eger launched another news magazine in the same mood and genre in December 1999 for a news satellite channel, Televisions Locales Independantes (TLI). The show was a 52 minutes news magazine called "Human Rights Everyday". On July 4, 2001, Human Rights Multimedia becomes Eger Films to create narrative dramas and comedies for TV and cinema.

In the summer of 2002, Fred joins the 2002 UCLA Summer Professional Program in Producing. There, Fred completes his original training in broadcast journalism with narrative dramas screen writing, directing, producing and distribution.

The Professional Program in Producing provides an intensive overview of the contemporary film and television industries, and introduces students to the tools needed to navigate the studio and independent marketplace. This graduate-level non-degree program is modeled after the MFA Producers Program at UCLA and has academic oversight by the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. Seminar-style lectures and Q/A sessions are presented by both regular UCLA faculty and distinguished industry professionals and their guests. Upon successfully finishing the program, students receive a certificate of completion.

The Professional Program in Producing consists of a series of lectures, discussions, and appearances by entertainment industry guests. Areas of discussion range from pitching to story development to budgeting/scheduling to marketing/distribution, and more.

For those professionals who do not have the time to spend two years or more in a degree program, the UCLA Professional Program in Producing is an adequate tool to get a respected UCLA education and to acquire a vast amount of information about the entertainment business in a short period of time.

Because enrollment is selective and limited based on professional track records, students in the Professional Program are able to get to know each other quickly, and there is ample opportunity to network with like-minded individuals with varied professional backgrounds. Many students in this program have formed partnerships and developed media projects together.

In the fall of 2002 after returning from Los Angeles to Paris, Fred works as an independent producer, screenwriter, director and reporter. Amongst others, he collaborated to the Medias segment of "Ring Mag", a kind of "Rolling Stones magazine".

He also worked as newscast producer for TFJ (French Jewish Television), producing one minute thirty reports on world news for the hourly news editions. From 2005 until today, Fred has been working as journalist and film critic for the weekly newspapers such as "The Epoch Times" (www.theepochtimes.com), writing papers on global issues and the film industry.

In the spring 2005, Eger Films produces a short "Ronny & Cindy", the pilot episode Eger Films have been developing over the years. For releasing a feature theatrically, Eger Films produces and releases the documentary "Ronny & Cindy In All of Us" articulating the short's characters lives and real-life people testimonials; "Ronny & Cindy". In March 2007, Eger wrote, directed and produced a twenty minutes short "When Ronny met Cindy !?".

Eger Films develops feature narratives, a TV series, produces on-demand B2B and B2G films, news reports and items for existing news, society and variety magazines, and, publishes and distributes its productions on DVD for the B2C. November 2014, Eger Films becomes Eger Shows to embrace both television and theatrical markets.
