Indie Zig Zag Productions and distributor DRG have agreed a 2-year content development and distribution deal.

The agreement sees Zig Zag develop an original slate of unscripted content and formats for which DRG will have the option to co-develop and distribute.

The agreement also sees DRG acquire global distribution rights to Zig Zag’s ‘Killing Michael Jackson’, a 1 x 60’ documentary film that explores the circumstances around the death and aftermath of global pop icon Michael Jackson. This film will now become part of DRG’s launch slate at MIPCOM.

Led by CEO Danny Fenton, Zig Zag’s shows include ‘Troy’, ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’, ‘The Football Show’, ‘Japandemonium’, ‘Blink’ and ‘The Next Jamie Vardy’.

Mette Kanne-Behrendsen, DRG’s SVP acquisitions comments: “Danny and the team at Zig Zag Productions have a real talent for producing creative, bold and headline-grabbing programming. We are excited to have established this new relationship with them and look forward to bringing our full support and international expertise so that we can deliver a fantastic raft of new content to the market, and benefit both our businesses.”

“We’ve long admired DRG as a fast-moving innovative business who embraces our own entrepreneurial spirit. Zig Zag’s creative sensibilities and DRG’s catalogue are a great fit and we’re thrilled to be collaborating with them in the development and international distribution of new factual productions and formats” said Danny Fenton, Chief Executive Officer, Zig Zag Productions.
