Leading independent distributor all3media international has signed its first drama deal with China’s iQIYI, as UK-produced series Rellik and The Miniaturist are licensed by the leading Chinese online platform.
The deal includes exclusive streaming rights to innovative crime thriller Rellik (6 x 1-hour), a New Pictures and Two Brothers Pictures production for BBC One and Cinemax, and haunting period thriller The Miniaturist (3 x 1-hour) from The Forge, commissioned by the BBC and co-produced with Masterpiece, USA in association with all3media international and Lemaise Pictures. Formerly known as Qiyi, streaming video service iQIYI has more than 20 million subscribers throughout China.
Kit Yow, Sales Manager Asia Pacific at all3media international, commented, “We’re very pleased to conclude this significant new deal with iQIYI, representing our first drama acquisition by a Chinese platform. The agreement highlights the success of our ongoing strategy to forge closer relationships with local broadcasters and expand the reach of our catalogue through our Singapore-based regional sales office. Our factual entertainment content is already a strong performer with Chinese audiences and we know these impeccably produced, high-quality original thrillers will prove equally popular with iQIYI subscribers.”
