Sherman Oaks-based indie prodco and distributor GRB Studios has penned a co-production partnership with London indie Zig Zag Productions.
Under the pact, the two companies will jointly shop and produce a selection of “mutually-chosen” non-scripted projects on both sides of the pond. As such, Zig Zag-created titles will be shopped in the U.S. and GRB-made ventures will likewise be looking for buyers in the UK.
All programs greenlit will be co-produced by the companies.
“Our aim is to co-produce a number of compelling unscripted projects together that will appeal to a global audience, harnessing the best of both companies’ creative and business strengths,” said GRB’s Sarah Coursey (pictured left), who recently joined the California company as SVP of international.
“We’re excited to be forming this strategic alliance to exploit mutually selected Zig Zag and GRB projects and formats for the U.S. and UK markets. Creating an Anglo-American partnership between two strong independent players with proven excellence in creativity and production is an exciting prospect” added Matt Graff (right), managing director of Zig Zag.
