Under the deal, CCF will identify unscripted ideas from female creators for development and production across several genres, including lifestyle, crime and documentary series.

The projects will then be produced by Blue Ant Studios in collaboration with CCF, with Bristow serving as executive producer. Blue Ant International will act as the global distribution company.

Former CBC exec and Bristow Global Media founder Bristow launched CCF in September last year.

Laura Michalchyshyn, chief creative officer and co-president, global content production, at Blue Ant Media, said: “Not only will this joint venture allow us to grow the unscripted side of our business, specifically in popular genres like lifestyle, docu, reality and format programming, but it will also position us at the forefront of progressive, brilliant new content created by women.”

Bristow added: “This announcement is just the beginning: CCF plans to bolster its executive production capacity with talent that will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience that includes buying and selling exciting projects in North America and around the world. This will allow us to give our new pipeline of female-generated, unscripted programming the very best start in life.”
