NBCUniversal & BBC Strike Unscripted Formats Deal

NBCUniversal & BBC Strike Unscripted Formats Deal
NBCUniversal and the BBC are searching for the next wave of unscripted after striking a transatlantic partnership.

The U.S. media group, which operates broadcast network NBC, a slew of cable networks and streamer Peacock, and the British public broadcaster have teamed up to find unscripted shows that can work both in the States and UK.

The pair will hunt for shows produced by British producers across unscripted genres and will look to co-commission pilots or develop projects with series potential.

They have agreed terms for producers, based on the BBC’s existing terms, which will be a boon for producers as the BBC has much more favorable terms that U.S. networks. Diversity will also be a key part of the decision-making process.

NBC has also remade a number of BBC formats including The Wheel, The Weakest Link and Dragon’s Den, while the BBC has remade NBC’s The Wall.
