Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens‘ (pictured) Propagate Content has partnered with German production stable Constantin Entertainment to develop and produce entertainment across all formats and genres.

Constantin GM Jochen Köstler said in a statement that “production is imminent and will continue to ramp up” as the Munich-based company looks to share Propagate’s content and formats with its clients.

“With their robust and growing catalog of content across all genres and formidable development and creative team, Propagate is the ideal partner for Constantin Entertainment,” he added.

Los Angeles-headquartered indie Propagate has produced a raft of scripted and unscripted programming, with recent credits such as the documentary November 13: Attack on Paris; docuseries In Search Of for History; and reality series Planet of the Apps for Apple.

Its expanding portfolio of companies include Electus (Running Wild with Bear Grylls); Big Breakfast (Adam Ruins Everything); Notion (Chopped); Hard Twenty, Incognita, and talent management firms Artists First and Authentic Talent & Literary Management.

Constantin Entertainment, a subsidiary of Constantin Film, runs production facilities in a number of European countries. Its credits include The Voice (Israel, Switzerland); Kitchen Nightmares (Greece, Poland, Serbia, Croatia); and MasterChef (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria).

The company has also developed and produced Milfor Missy, the first reality show for newly established streamer JOYN, a joint venture of German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 and Discovery.
