MBC Group and MGM International Television Productions have signed a multi-year deal to develop and co-produce premium original series.
The two companies recently partnered on MGM’s anticipated shows Last Light and Billy the Kid, which will air on MBC.
Projects produced under the deal will air exclusively on MBC Group-owned streamer Shahid VIP throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa, with MGM handling co-production and distribution for the rest of the world.
Commenting on the deal, Mark Burnett, Chairman of MGM Worldwide Television, said: “We are thrilled to partner with MBC Group and Sheikh Waleed, who are leaders in their market. With MGM International TV Productions’ content and talent partnerships in France, Australia, the Nordics, Latin America and now the Middle East and Northern Africa via MBC Group, MGM Television is perfectly positioned to continue building our international expansion of signature premium content together with Rola and the incredible team we have assembled.”
Rola Bauer, President of MGM International TV Productions, added: “This partnership with our friends at MBC is to develop the best stories and connect storytellers from East and West. We will jointly create original series that are crossing borders, breaking boundaries and will kickstart conversations, all around the globe.”
