BBC Studios & KBS extend factual content deal for 23rd year

Dynasties II

BBC Studios (BBCS) in the UK and Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) have renewed their long-term partnership with a multi-year content deal giving KBS exclusive access to the first windowing of blue-chip natural history titles in South Korea.

The deal marks the 23rd year of their partnership, with KBS taking rights to shows including Frozen Planet II, Dynasties II, and Planet Earth III. The agreement also includes a first-look at other premium factual, across science, documentary, arts, history and other unscripted content.

Frozen Planet II explores the wilderness of the Arctic and Antarctica and tells the complete story of the entire frozen quarter of our planet that’s locked in ice and blanketed in snow.  It is slated to broadcast in 2022

From Pantagonia’s frozen Andes, to the plains of Zambia, to grasslands in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Dynasties II provides fresh insights into the secret lives of some of the most charismatic animals on the planet, while Planet Earth III is described by the BBC as its most ambitious natural history project to date.

“We’ve received positive feedback from the Korean viewers on the high-quality content distributed by BBC Studios and we look forward to the release of compelling high-quality dramas, Frozen Planet II and Dynasties II,” said KBS in a statement.
