UK-based producer Nevision has signed a multi-year agreement to invest in a slate of factual documentaries in development at a new label sitting within French indie Terminal 9.
About Premium Content, which Nevision backs, will source presales and handle international distribution on programmes.
Former Endemol and France Télévisions exec Claude Lacaze launched Terminal 9 three years ago and has since focused on entertainment formats, but is now launching Termin 9 F, which will create focus for a global audience.
Currently slated are two films for RMC Decouverte, and films in development with Arte and France 5.
“Both Nevision and APC are known for quality scripted content but this deal affirms our increased commitment to factual programming with global appeal,” said James Cabourne, executive chairman of Nevision. “Claude has a track record and reputation in producing first-rate non scripted shows and we are thrilled to be backing his latest development slate.”
