The Americas region operates four core businesses across the United States, Canada, and Latin America - linear and digital content sales and co-productions, content production, strategic partnerships, and consumer products.
The content sales and co-productions team complete deals for finished content with linear and digital partnerships and execute significant co-production deals with major broadcasters like PBS for a series of key factual titles, AMC for McMafia, and Netflix for forthcoming title Wanderlust.
Our Los Angeles-based production unit produces reformats of key BBC titles, in addition to developing and producing fresh originations in line with the BBC editorial standards and values. The team is responsible for ratings juggernaut Dancing with the Stars on ABC, critically-acclaimed The Night Of on HBO, and award-winning Life Below Zero on National Geographic Channel.
The region is also home to branded linear channel partnerships with AMC Networks for BBC AMERICA, Shaw Media for BBC Canada, and Blue Ant Media for BBC Earth (Canada), as well as BritBox, the subscription video-on-demand service with the largest collection of British television in the USA and Canada, launched in 2017 through a joint venture with ITV.
Lastly, the business develops a range of consumer products, including apparel, toys, Blu-ray and DVD, and creates cinema events to enhance and extend fan enjoyment across an array of shows.
