SPI/FilmBox & Red Bull Media House Ink Content Deal for FunBox UHD


SPI International/FilmBox and Red Bull Media House have signed a new 4K/UHD content acquisition deal to bring Culinary Heights at Ikarus to FunBox UHD, a general entertainment channel devoted to nature, travel and lifestyle.

The deal grants SPI the broadcast rights to the 12-part series Culinary Heights at Ikarus on their 4K and HD channels, as well as its sublicensing rights to third parties in select territories. The series offers a unique glimpse into the world of high-end cuisine at Salzburg’s two Michelin-starred Restaurant Ikarus, where a different top international chef creates the menu each month. The series, featuring Hangar-7 executive chef Martin Klein, provides a portrait of each guest chef, their culinary philosophy and the food culture of their country.

SPI previously acquired the adventure series The Rocky Mountains Traverse from Red Bull Media House, which follows two adventurers on the longest paragliding air journey ever accomplished.

Revi Benshoshan, director of acquisitions at SPI International, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Red Bull Media House once again to expand our portfolio of dynamic programming with incredible visual quality. The addition of Culinary Heights at Ikarus to SPI’s portfolio reflects our commitment to providing our audiences with a diverse range of quality programming to suit different tastes.”
