The two companies say one of the keys to their partnership is that they are quite similar in their approach to the international television business.

“We’re excited to be forming this strategic alliance to exploit mutually selected Zig Zag and GRB projects and formats for the US and UK markets,” added Zig Zag Productions managing director Matt Graff. “Creating an Anglo-American partnership between two strong independent players with proven excellence in creativity and production is an exciting prospect.”
