Under the agreement, NBCUIS will develop both scripted and unscripted television content from original StoryHunter IP.

StoryHunter will also work in partnership with NBCUIS’s family of production companies, including Carnival, Heyday Television, Monkey and Working Title Television to support the off-television exploitation of their shows, including podcasts and social media activity.

StoryHunter was launched late last year by former Fremantle, Sony Television Pictures and All3Media exec Kirsty Hunter, as revealed by C21.

NBCUIS president Jeff Wachtel said: “Kirsty is a dynamo who has her finger on the pulse of the increasingly important digital side of our business. Her company offers us a treasure trove of new voices and ideas to create new shows and enhance our new launches.”

Hunter spoke to the C21Podcast about the business at Content London in December.
