Distributor DRG has signed an exclusive new non-scripted content relationship with Woodcut Media and The Development Partnership.
Indie Woodcut Media, is led by CEO Kate Beal and creative director Derren Lawford, with support from former Lion TV founder Jeremy Mills, who acts as chairman. The Development Partnership (TDP), run by Robert Taylor, is a development company that aims to “provide an environment for talent to have a substantial voice in the development and production of projects they are passionate about.” Last year, the TDP/ Woodcut Partnership produced Football: A brief History by Alfie Allen for the History Channel.
Richard Halliwell, DRG’s CEO said: “We are truly excited by this new three-way collaboration as it puts DRG at the centre of content creation and ensures we can use our expertise effectively, inputting creatively on what will work best – and generate most revenue – internationally.”
Kate Beal, CEO at Woodcut Media said: “This feels like the natural next step in our relationship with The Development Partnership. Now, with DRG’s international experience and wide-ranging support, we’ll be able to supercharge our efforts in this space”.
Robert Taylor from The Development Partnership said: “We are really excited to be embarking on this relationship with DRG, and continuing our relationship with Woodcut. TDP is designed as a place where talent can have a meaningful voice in development and in production, and when it comes to our factual work, we want to encourage that in the hope we can tell authentic and authored stories through documentary”.
As part of the new collaboration, DRG will also represent future programmes co-produced between Woodcut and TDP in the international market.
