Factual specialist FirstLookTV announces an Australian hook-up with Melbourne-based Distributor LGI Media, marking the further expansion of FirstLookTV’s distribution collaborations throughout the global market. FirstLook has similar deals in place in the USA, Canada, Latin America and Europe. The Meet Marry Murder ProdCo will work with LGI in the Crime and History genres originating key titles in Australia and Asia.
Alongside the deal, FirstLookTV has also announced the development of the company’s investment in History and Natural History, both of which are genres already distributed by LGI Media in territories beyond Europe and America, giving LGI a head-start in supercharging funding initiatives.
Recent hires have opened new editorial areas at FirstLookTV with titles debuting at Mipcom 2023. Will Hanrahan, founder of FirstLookTV, says “We operate globally as a business and we have been looking for a presence in the Southern hemisphere to add to our superb distribution collaborators in the UK and Canada. LGI's titles reflect a real connection with the needs of the content market, and we are delighted to be working with them. Our production model is set up to create winning brands outside of True Crime and LGI has the potential to boost that ambition.”
Nha-Uyen Chao, founder of LGI Media says “LGI is thrilled to build our partnership with FLTV, one of the best producers in the true crime genre. Will and his team know how to produce shows that rate and resonate across the globe. The LGI team is delighted to bring Recipe for Murder to MIPCOM for our international clients”.
