ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has signed a multi-year distribution agreement for London-based Wild Pictures’ factual programming.
The renewed exclusive first-look distribution deal gives ITVS GE the rights to sell the prodco’s new programming to all territories, excluding the UK.
Under the current deal, ITVS GE has distributed Wild Pictures titles such as Baby Hospital, which goes inside the UK’s largest neo-natal unit; Strangeways (pictured), a doc focusing on life inside Britain’s largest high security prison; and The Real Thumbelina, about a four-year-old girl with a rare form of dwarfism.
“Wild Pictures has a reputation for producing award-winning, gripping factual programming,” said Maria Kyriacou, managing director of ITV Studios Global Entertainment. “The company’s productions have already proved hugely popular with audiences around the world and we are delighted to be able to offer our clients more of the high quality programming for which Wild Pictures is known.”
