ZDF Enterprises has struck a deal with the Czech Republic’s FTV Prima for three years of programming, totaling 475 hours.

The package of documentaries will supply Prima’s latest channel, Prima ZOOM, which is a free-to-air station fully focused on documentaries. The channel launched on February 1.

During its first year on air, Prima ZOOM will acquire 250 hours of wildlife, nature and science programming from ZDF Enterprises, including Planet Egypt, Holy War, Invisible Universe (pictured above), and Cowboys of the Sea.

“In the past years we have consistently built up and expanded the factual genre collection of our program catalog,” said ZDFE.factual VP Ralf Rueckauer. “We are now no longer simply highlight suppliers and coproducers of super-docs, but also service providers and launch partners for new slots and channels which we support from the start.”
