Beijing-based production company LIC China and Spain’s CinTV have signed a coproduction pact for wildlife series Wild Menu and doc The Tale of the Magpie.
Wild Menu will show the relation and balance of the feeding process of the world’s species, and touches on sustainability and resource management.
The coproduction deal also includes a one-hour documentary, The Tale of the Magpie. The doc tells the story of the Azure Magpie, a rare bird that lives in the Iberian Peninsula and the Far East in China. Ramón Campoamor serves as director.
“It is a good feeling to be able to make this production between Spain and China, especially through LIC China who is involved in worldwide coproduction with partners such as NHK, PBS, KBS and now with TVE in Spain,” said Victor Fraile, international director at CinTV.
“We certainly believe that this is not only a good business agreement for us but also a good start and experience for the Spanish audiovisual industry to cooperate with China,” added Juan Antonio Dominguez, CinTV CEO and president of the Spanish Producers Documentary Association.
