BBC Worldwide and FremantleMedia in Australian Production partnership

Two leading content companies have formed a new partnership to produce BBC Worldwide’s general entertainment formats for the Australian market.

The multi-year deal will see FremantleMedia Australia (FMA) working alongside BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand to provide programming from the BBC’s world-class entertainment catalogue.

The production partnership includes current library and future general entertainment formats.

“This deal will enable BBC Worldwide to grow its content business in Australia, which in turn will provide more exciting commercial opportunities off screen,” says Jon Penn, Managing Director, BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand. “This is a key plank of our strategy going forward and I am delighted that we have found the best partner to help us to realise this.”

Ian Hogg, FMA Regional CEO Australia/Asia Pacific, adds: “FremantleMedia and BBC Worldwide have a shared DNA for creative excellence. We very much look forward to working with the BBC Worldwide ANZ leadership team. This is a powerful partnership that will be transformational for both companies.”
