Sky Vision signs back2back development deal

BSkyB-owned Sky Vision has scored an exclusive co-development partnership with UK indie back2back Productions.

The pair will work together to co-develop factual programming with international appeal, which Sky Vision will sell on the global market.

Sky Vision already handles international distribution for back2back programming for BSkyB-owned channel Sky Arts such as Ignition: Memory Palace, which was recently acquired by Sky TV in New Zealand.

back2back is best known for series such as Sky Atlantic’s Jews on Bikes and History’s Shaun Ryder on UFOs.

“Joining forces with Sky Vision creates a important opportunity for us to build on our success to date, both nationally and internationally,” said the company’s managing director David Notman-Watt.

“Through this partnership, we aim to bring their programming to a much wider audience.  This kick-starts our ambition to work with other UK indies in a unique and tailored way, creating strategic collaborations that benefit all parties,” said Connie Hodson, Sky Vision’s commercial director.
