ViacomCBS-owned Channel 5 and Network 10 will co-fund a new 8-part series, The Royals Revealed.
The series marks the second content partnership between the UK and Australian free-to-air networks since the completion of the ViacomCBS merger.
The Royals Revealed will be produced by indie Back2back Productions and will be deficit financed by Parade Media Group. The series will take viewers on a journey through all aspects of the British Monarchy, past and present. Focussed on the most influential Royal family members, the series will unpick their personal stories to explore the bigger issues at the heart of the monarchy. The series is set to air on both networks later this year.
“The British Monarchy is an endlessly fascinating subject, evidenced by the success we’ve had so far on Channel 5 with our other royal strands. Being able to provide a fresh angle on some of the best-known royal events and sagas is something we know will appeal to our audience,” Cherry Yeandle, Senior Manager, Acquisitions & Co-Productions, Channel 5 said. “The project is also enabling us to build on our relationship and synergies with Network 10 in Australia.”
Back2back’s Productions Founder/Managing Director, David Notman-Watt says “We are delighted to be partnering up with Parade Media Group on The Royals Revealed, an ambitious and timely series that will shed new light on some of the most important events in recent Royal history.”
Parade’s Chief Content Officer, Mark Caulton says “We are thrilled to be working with such terrific partners as Back2back, Channel 5, and Network 10 on this exciting new series that we know will appeal to both UK and international audiences.”
