UK television distributor Cineflix Rights has secured a first-look development and distribution deal with factual indie producer Talesmith.
Under the deal, Cineflix Rights is making a significant investment in the company’s development activities and will help finance projects for greenlight in the UK and international markets. There is also an option to coproduce content with Cineflix Media’s in-house production teams in North America.
Cineflix, in return, will gain the exclusive worldwide distribution rights to the projects from the indie producer founded by Emmy-winning filmmaker Martin Williams, which focuses on the production of high-end natural history, science and factual multi-platform content.
The two companies have previously partnered on coproduction Rediscovering T. rex (pictured).
This is the latest partnership deal for Cineflix, who recently entered into a development and production partnership with Monty Hall’s Seadog Productions.
“Partnering with Cineflix Rights will help us ramp up development and production of more innovative content for the international market,” said Ulla Streib and Martin Williams, in a joint statement. They are the COO and CEO, respectively, of Talesmith.
