Zinc Media Group announces new commissions totalling over £5m million including three series


Zinc Media Group plc, the TV and multimedia content producer, is pleased to announce a number of new commissions totalling £5.1m, including two returning series and a new repeatable series.


Manchester-based Blakeway North has won two new series for Channel 5 and a new BBC commission, worth £1.4m in total.  These new programmes include the repeating series 'Bargain Loving Brits in the Sun' for Channel 5, which returns for its fifth series.  Bargain Loving Brits, which is a ratings hit, follows the lives of Brits who've left the UK for a new cut-price life on the Costa Del Sol.  The Group's other commission for Channel 5, which is a new series, has the potential to develop into a long returning strand once the first series airs.


Tern TV has won commissions for BBC1, Channel 4, Channel 5, More 4 and BBC Scotland totalling £1.5m, including the second series of Great British Car Journeys for More 4. 


Zinc Media's London based documentary and current affairs label Brook Lapping also announces £2.2m of commissions for clients including ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, a feature documentary for the Smithsonian channel's Black History Month, and two documentaries for the BBC which have attracted international investment from America and Europe.


Mark Browning, Zinc Media's CEO commented, "This slate of new programme commissions across the Zinc group provides a solid start to the 2019/20 financial year and are particularly positive for our client count, as we are working with all the main UK broadcasters.  I am encouraged by the three new series, particularly that two are returning, as these provide the back bone for potential future growth."
