Sky Vision, the distribution arm of pay-TV network BSkyB, is partnering with UK-based indie Back2Back Productions to co-develop factual programming with a global focus.

Back2Back’s slate of shows includes The Man Who Doesn’t Breathe (Discovery UK), Napoleon (BBC2), Jews on Bikes (Sky Atlantic) and My Phone Sex Secrets (Channel 4). Sky Vision already handles international distribution for Back2Back-produced titles for the Sky Arts channel, such as the documentary¬†Ignition: Memory Palace.

“Through this partnership, we aim to bring [Back2Back] programming to a much wider audience,” said Connie Hodson, commercial director at Sky Vision, in a statement. “This kick-starts our ambition to work with other UK indies in a unique and tailored way, creating strategic collaborations that benefit all parties.”
