Glasgow-headquartered STV Productions and Lionsgate-backed Primal Media have inked a two-year copro deal.

The deal will see the two companies work together to develop and pitch large-scale entertainment formats to UK and international networks. Additionally, the two companies aim to produce the content in Scotland.

The partnership is intended to develop and produce returning series for terrestrial and digital players while serving the demand for programming from the UK’s nations and regions.

Founded in 2016 by Mat Steiner and Adam Wood, Primal Media has produced a range of entertainment shows including Carnage (pictured) for Sky One, Rose D’Or-winning Bigheads for ITV and RTS Award-winning Release The Hounds for ITV2.

Lionsgate will be first in line to distribute any formats developed via the partnership.

“Every ambitious indie these days must have the option to produce in Scotland – if not, too many precious format slots will be out of reach. STV, with their scale, entrepreneurial leadership and deep-rooted Scottish production expertise, feel like the perfect partners,” said Wood in a statement.
