Zinc Media Group Renews Agreement with BBC Studios


Zinc Media Group has signed a new three-year distribution partnership agreement with BBC Studios.

BBC Studios will continue to serve as Zinc’s first-look distributor for its London and Manchester labels, including, for the first time, Red Sauce, Rex, Supercollider and Atomic Television. BBC Studios’ catalog already includes a range of programs from Zinc’s Brook Lapping, including Putin vs the West.

BBC Studios also distributes the Brook Lapping titles Tom Daley: Illegal to Be Me, 9/11: Life Under Attack and Afghanistan: Getting Out.

Tanya Shaw, managing director of Zinc Television, said: “Our catalog, across all of Zinc Television’s labels, straddles the full spectrum of factual. It has always enjoyed international success with its appeal to audiences from across the world. We are delighted to be continuing with BBC Studios as partners to help bring our content to these audiences and with a new roster of labels already enjoying domestic success, are excited to share their work with the international market.”

Suzanne McKenna, director of unscripted Indies at BBC Studios, added: “Zinc Media produces a broad range of bold factual content that complements BBC Studios Productions’ existing factual slate, and we’re delighted to be continuing our relationship with them and bringing their content to global audiences through our renewed first-look distribution deal.”
