South Korean entertainment giant CJ ENM and Warner Horizon Unscripted Television have struck a first-look deal to collaboratively produce unscripted TV formats.
Under terms of the deal, the I Can See Your Voice (pictured) producer will continue to seek out production opportunities for the North American marketplace alongside Warner Horizon Unscripted Television and its producing partners.
In addition to I Can See Your Voice, which premiered on Fox in September, CJ ENM is behind such hit IP as the musical guessing game The Masked Singer and reality travelogue Grandpas Over Flowers, known as Better Late Than Never in the U.S.
Warner Horizon Unscripted Television, part of Warner Bros. Unscripted Television, was founded in 2006 and boasts an entertainment slate that spans primetime reality series and documentaries, including The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, Ellen’s Game of Games and Mental Samurai.
“The U.S. market is a very important and symbolic market for us. We are more than delighted to partner with Warner Horizon Unscripted which is one of the most successful studios in the U.S.,” said Diane Min, head of format sales at CJ ENM, in a statement.
“We believe that this partnership with Warner Horizon Unscripted will bring us great opportunities to introduce our other numerous creative shows to American audiences through Warner’s excellent expertise and experiences in TV production.”
