Ruder Finn, to pitch film and TV concepts about the organisation to

Hollywood.



The move is part of a growing initiative by UN secretary-general Kofi

Annan to create a more positive public profile for the UN, along with

media guidelines which are currently being formalised (PR Week, 20

who is consulting on a pro bono basis, acknowledged that he has been in

contact with film studios and TV networks.
