Associated Press TV and GRB team up

They'll create shows for worldwide marketplace

CANNES — GRB Entertainment, one of the U.S.’ most prolific producer-distribs of reality-based docu series, is partnering with Associated Press TV, the London-based video news agency of the wire service, to create shows for the worldwide marketplace.

The 4-year-old APTV will link with GRB in the co-production of series and specials for the small screen, according to terms of the deal. Their first joint project will be 26 more episodes of disaster series “What Went Wrong?”

At the MipDoc screenings here earlier in the week, GRB licensed 70 hours of reality-based programming to Mexico’s Televisa and 40 hours to Brazil’s Rede Bandeirantes.

Kim Relick, VP of international distribution for L.A.-based GRB, said the programs may be customized by the broadcasters using GRB’s modular programming formats for the international market.

No figure was available for the worth of the deals, but sources in Cannes confirmed that the prices for docus have been rising rapidly over the past year or two.
