Farouk "Frank" Agrama (born January 1, 1930 in Arish, Egypt),[1] is an American director, producer and writer. He is founder and former chief executive officer (CEO) of Harmony Gold USA, Inc.

In the 1970s and early 1980s, Agrama made a number of low-budget films which included The Godfather's Friend, Queen Kong and Dawn of the Mummy. He also began selling broadcast rights from Paramount Pictures which he then sold to his friend, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's Mediaset media company.[2]

In 1983, he secured a deal with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) to distribute the controversial miniseries Shaka Zulu.[3] In the same year, he founded Harmony Gold USA, Inc. Despite Shaka Zulu's massive success worldwide, Agrama's skillful negotiations left SABC to actually lose money while Harmony Gold kept most of the profit.[4]

Harmony Gold would eventually be known for producing the film Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, other Robotech animated works and the 1993 miniseries Heidi.

On October 26, 2012, Agrama was convicted after a lengthy trial involving the buying and selling of US film rights to the Mediaset media company at inflated prices.[5] As his age exceeded 70 years, he was exempted from direct imprisonment and served no actual jail time. According to the Los Angeles Times, on November 21, 2006 prosecutors in Milan, Italy charged Agrama, along with former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, and ten others in a trial over tax fraud, embezzlement and false accounting at Mediaset.

In 2013, Agrama and several others, including Mediaset Vice Chairman Pier Silvio Berlusconi, son of Silvio Berlusconi, and the Hong Kong-based Wiltshire Group of Companies were placed on trial for tax evasion and embezzlement with the broadcasting rights firm, Mediatrade. In 2014, all parties were acquitted in the first instance due to expiring statute of limitations.[6] A new appeals hearing took place on January 20, 2016.[7] All charges against Agrama and five others were dropped, while Mediaset CEO Pier-Silvio Berlusconi and Chairman Fedele Confalonieri were sentenced to 14 months imprisonment.[8]
