ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has extended its output agreement with TVNZ in New Zealand for all ITVS GE content. The multi-year deal, which renews next year, means TVNZ will continue to have first look across all ITVS GE genres including drama, entertainment, factual entertainment and documentaries.
As well as airing new series including Victoria, Cold Feet and Prime Suspect: Tennison, TVNZ will continue to show some of ITVS GE’s most popular series from Coronation Street and Emmerdale to The Chase and The Jeremy Kyle Show.
Augustus Dulgaro, EVP, Asia Pacific for ITV Studios Global Entertainment & Chief Operating Officer, ITV Studios Australia, said: “This latest renewal in the Asia Pacific region shows once again that our extensive global catalogue remains extremely popular. We are delighted that TVNZ has agreed to continue offering its viewers in New Zealand the very best of our new and returning series.”
Cate Slater, TVNZ Director of Content, said: “This continuation of TVNZ’s longstanding relationship with ITV highlights the appeal of the content and makes sure TVNZ can continue to deliver viewer favourites like Coronation Street and Victoria.” The deal was brokered by Camelia Mowbray, Sales Executive for New Zealand and Japan at ITVS GE.
