Kew Media Group-owned distributor TCB Media Rights has signed a two-year first-look deal with UK indies Transparent TV, Daisybeck Studios and Wild Pictures.
TCB will represent Transparent’s entire back catalog as part of the deal, which means 70 hours of content will be added to TCB’s slate, including 33 hours of Botched Up Bodies and season two of Michael Portillo’s Hidden History of Britain (pictured), both on Channel 5 in the UK.
TCB will also acquire 50 hours of content from the other two companies, including Daisybeck’s The Production Line and Wild’s The Cruise, both on ITV in the UK.
“This is another great example of the growing strength of the TCB platform,” said Steven Silver, Kew Media founder and CEO, in a release. “TCB is a preferred choice for many producers, and the 120 hours of new content is an exciting addition to TCB’s catalog.”
“Our roster of premium content suppliers continues to grow, exemplified by deals with Transparent TV, Daisybeck and Wild Pictures,” added TCB’s head of acquisitions and co-productions Jimmy Humphrey. “We look forward to the opportunity of presenting new factual content, based on a variety of genres throughout MIPCOM and into the future.”
