London-based indie Nevision has inked a multi-year investment deal with former France Télévisions and Endemol executive Claude Lacaze‘s (pictured) new factual label, Terminal 9 F.

Under the deal, Nevision will invest in a slate of new factual docuseries and specials that are currently being developed by Terminal 9 F. Production on the projects is expected to be accelerated with the support from the indie and financier and distributor About Premium Content (APC), who brokered the deal with Nevision’s backing.

APC will be charged with sourcing pre-sales and handling international distribution for all content created through the new French label.

Lacaze first launched Paris-based prodco Terminal 9 Studios in 2013 in order to develop entertainment series for French broadcasters. Now, Terminal 9 F will set its sights on creating factual docuseries for a global audience.

The factual division’s current slate includes two films for RMC Découverte, and two films in development for ARTE and France 5.

“Both Nevision and APC are known for quality scripted content but this deal affirms our increased commitment to factual programming with global appeal,” said Nevision executive chairman James Cabourne in a statement. “Claude has a track record and reputation in producing first-rate non-scripted shows and we are thrilled to be backing his latest development slate.”
