The work of the ZDF Enterprises Coproduction Department can be divided into three main task areas:
- Conducting the entire negotiation process for active and passive coproduction projects involving ZDF or ZDF Enterprises and international partners
- Identifying projects with worldwide market potential within ZDF’s portfolio, from the German or international TV market, securing the world rights for these productions and subsequently searching for suitable international coproduction partners.
- Identifying projects with significant market potential for German-speaking areas, from the international TV market, securing the German language rights (and in certain circumstances other rights) for these productions and subsequently searching for suitable coproduction partners from the relevant territories.
In such matters ZDF Enterprises generally acts on behalf of ZDF but may also be active on its own account.
Are you interested in involvement with one of our projects? Are you looking for a partner with international presence, considerable experience and an outstanding reputation in the sphere of coproduction? Just get in touch with us; we will be only too pleased to discuss the possibility of working together.
