All3Media has bought NENT Studios UK’s distribution business—the entity formerly known as DRG—encompassing more than 10,000 hours of content.
Scripted titles and formats joining the All3Media International catalog include Doc Martin, The Cry, Yorkshire Vet, Manhunt, Catchphrase and Don’t Tell the Bride.
“NENT Studios UK has a deep, high-quality, distribution catalog and I’m really pleased that Louise Pedersen and All3Media International will be in a position to add titles such as the upcoming original drama Close to Me, as well as Doc Martin, Catchphrase and Don’t Tell the Bride to our distribution slate,” said All3Media CEO Jane Turton. “There has never been more demand for high-quality IP, and we are all looking forward to working closely with the producers of these shows.”
Pedersen, CEO of All3Media International, added: “With over 10,000 hours of content, and some fantastic, internationally known programs, this catalog will be an excellent and complementary addition to our library.”
Gabriel Catrina, NENT Group EVP and CFO, noted, “All3Media’s position as a global distributor and storyteller makes it an ideal home for NENT Studios’ UK distribution business. This agreement and the ongoing sale of our Nordic non-scripted businesses are in line with NENT Group’s strategy of focusing on scripted content for our fast-expanding Viaplay streaming service, which will be available in at least 15 countries by 2023.”
