Our client Zig Zag Productions today announces international distribution deals for two separate factual series’ it has co-produced with South Korean partners.
The first agreement is a deal with Blue Ant International, a transatlantic distributor of premium content, who will distribute a brand-new food and travel series starring the world-famous Chinese-American chef Martin Yan. ‘Korean Food Alive’ (13 x 30’) sees Martin set out across South Korea in search of the secrets behind the country’s healthy and delicious cuisine, embarking on a journey to shed some light on Korea’s extraordinary culture and passion for food. From the North Eastern province of Gangwon, home of the 2018 Winter Olympics, down to Jeju Island off the southern coast, Chef Yan meets with culinary experts and talented chefs to get the inside scoop on the Korean homemade cooking style called “jip-bop.”.
The series is scheduled for broadcast on CJ E&M and is a co-production between Zig Zag, South Korean producer Media Story 9 and CJ E&M. The series was supervised by Korean producer Buzz Media and part-funded by 81TV, a Hong Kong based entertainment company.
The second agreement sees international distributor DRG acquire the global rights to distribute ‘Future Human; AI’ (outside South Korea and China).
