IM Global will handle original international, coproduction, format and finished tape sales for projects from IPC, which was founded in 2015 by its CEO Eli Holzman (Undercover Boss, Project Greenlight) and president Aaron Saidman (Undercover Boss, The Seven Five).

IPC develops and produces TV, film, docs and interactive mobile content, which IM Global will present at MipTV next week. Formats include Aftermath, which sees ordinary people working together to survive in a land short of resources; comedy series Instant Replay; and motor racing show Faster.

Stuart Ford, IM Global’s founder and CEO, said unscripted TV “is a key area of growth for IM Global Television’s distribution business.”

IM Global launched the distribution arm of its TV business last year, hiring former Electus exec Eli Shibley to run it. The new division handles international rights to IM Global Television’s scripted slate and is acquiring third-party scripted and unscripted projects from the US, UK and elsewhere.

IM Global already operated an international film sales and distribution business with a library of more than 250 titles and has financed more than 20 features.
