Under the two-year arrangement, ITVS America will work with Kim and his team to develop TV projects.

3AD recently brought the original Korean format of medical drama The Good Doctor to the US, where it airs on ABC.

The show, on which Kim serves as exec producer, has since become a worldwide hit, with broadcasters such as Russian pay TV and SVoD firm Amedia TV, Sky Living in the UK, TF1 in France and CTV in Canada picking it up.

ABC recently ordered extra episodes of the show’s first run.

“We are thrilled to join forces with a talent like Daniel Dae Kim,” said Philippe Maigret, president of ITVS America.

“Daniel’s eye for diverse, compelling stories and captivating execution of every project he produces make him, and the entire team at 3AD, a fantastic addition to our scripted television business as we continue to expand our development roster.”

Kim added that ITVS America had been “making exciting strides in scripted content,” and that he was looking forward to “many successful collaborations in the days to come.”

The move follows the recent coproduction agreement between ITV America and its subsidiary Twofour America.
