Blue Ant Seals Output Deal with Blink Films


Blue Ant Media has entered into a two-year production and distribution output agreement with Blink Films.

The pact will see Blink Films starting production this month in South America, Hungary, Austria and South Africa on seven new original series for Love Nature, a joint venture between Blue Ant Media and Smithsonian Networks. Also, Blue Ant International will add this content to its catalog for buyers worldwide by 2019.

“This exclusive output deal is an extension of our ongoing relationship with Blink Films to create premium programming for Blue Ant Media’s factual channels,” said Vanessa Case, the executive VP of content at Blue Ant Media. “Our new partnership will see us adding 24 hours of new premium wildlife and nature programming to Love Nature’s library, currently the largest 4K natural-history offering on the market.”

Dan Chambers, executive producer at Blink Films, added, “We are delighted to embark on these 24 hours of wildlife and nature programming. The scale [of] this production gives us the opportunity to achieve something quite special, with a great mix of animal behavior and science.”
