Independent distributor DRG has brokered a two-year, first-look deal with factual television prodco, Brown Bob Productions.

Under the terms of the new agreement, DRG will have distribution rights for all future Brown Bob Productions. The London-based production company has greenlit titles that are “soon to be announced” and has  further titles in advanced development.

Founded in 2013 by Jacqueline Hewer and Gottlieb, Brown Bob Productions has produced popular series such as Paul Merton’s Secret Stations for pubcaster Channel 4 and Inside the Ambulance (pictured) for W (UKTV).

“Brown Bob was first introduced to DRG as a suggested distributor, and we are excited that this has developed into a successful and broad-based partnership,” said Nicki Gottlieb, Brown Bob Productions’ managing director, in a statement. “We are now confidant that with DRG’s financial and creative backing, as well as its extensive knowledge of the international TV market, Brown Bob will quickly go from strength to strength, delivering broad-based factual content and formats that will succeed in the UK, as well as with broadcasters overseas.”
