French producer-distributor Zed has inked a two-way deal with CITVC – the distribution arm of Chinese broadcaster CCTV – that sees the latter acquire Chinese broadcast rights to more than 20 hours of programming.

Under the deal, CITVC will pick up the Chinese broadcast rights to documentary programming from the Zed catalog, including such titles as the Zadig-produced Annihilation: The Destruction of Europe’s Jews 100 Years Later (pictured), CC&C’s hour-long doc Capitulation and the Roche Productions-made The Secret Nüremberg Notebooks.

In addition, CITVC has inked pre-sales for films currently in production, such as the Docside-produced two-part doc Napoleon, the Egyptian Campaign.

Meanwhile, Zed has picked up the rights in French-speaking Europe to the 5 x 52-minute CCTV series China Mega Projects, which was produced by CITVC.

“This two-way agreement marks the fruition of the efforts Zed begun two years ago to strengthen its presence on the Chinese marketplace, and to develop relationships with key players in this fast-growing market,” said Manuel Catteau, president of Zed, in a statement.
