Znak & Co and New York-based Lucky 8 TV have inked an international coproduction deal that will see the companies develop and coproduce unscripted programming in the UK.

Their first project is Bad Girls Banged Up, a gritty prison format which takes at-risk female teens from the UK and subjects them, for one week, to the U.S. corrections system. The format will be shopped to UK broadcasters this week.

Znak & Co president Natalka Znak (pictured, right) and Lucky 8 TV co-presidents Kim Woodard (pictured, left) and Greg Henry (pictured, center) will serve as executive producers on the project.

“We’re elated to bring our work to the UK market alongside Znak & Co, whose singular creative expertise and success in developing programming and formats internationally make them an ideal partner for delivering content to UK audiences,” said Lucky 8 TV’s Woodard and Henry, in a statement.

Znak & Co currently has copro partnerships with Electus International and Jenny Daly’s T Group Productions, as well as a development deal with musician will.i.am. The company, which has offices in London and L.A., has over a dozen projects in production and development with networks in both the U.S. and the UK including Sky, ITV, Fox, C4 and MTV.

Lucky 8 TV has experience working with the U.S. corrections system as the company behind A&E’s 60 Days In. The series – going into its fourth season – follows everyday citizens who go undercover as inmates in American jails. Other current Lucky 8 series include Kids BBQ Championship for Food Network; Secrets of the Underground (Science Channel); The Real Story with María Elena Salinas (ID); the upcoming Released (OWN); and a currently untitled high school docuseries for A&E.
