FremantleMedia Intl. will continue to be the exclusive distribution and first-look partner for all Fresh One shows featuring Jamie Oliver, including “Jamie’s Money Saving Meals,” “Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feasts” and “Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals.”
FMI began its relationship with Fresh One in 2002, when it began distributing “Oliver’s Twist,” which has so far been sold to more than 200 territories. Oliver’s most recent title, “Jamie’s Money Saving Meals,” which FMI launched at MipCom in October, has sold to more than 100 territories.
In April, FMI will be bringing two new Oliver titles to the international marketplace: “Jamie and Jimmy’s Food Fight Club,” in which childhood friends Oliver and Jimmy Doherty embark on further culinary adventures, with celebrity guests including Usain Bolt and Sienna Miller, and “Jamie’s Festive Feasts,” a celebration of lazy winter days.
Bob McCourt, acting CEO, FMI, said, “Jamie Oliver is one of the world’s most pioneering and sought-after TV personalities, renowned for his global campaigning work as well as the diversity and quality of his output. He has been a stalwart of the FremantleMedia Intl. catalog for over a decade and I’m delighted that we are continuing our relationship with him and the team at Fresh One Prods.”
