Germany, France board Titanic

French broadcaster TF1 and Germany’s ZDF Enterprises are the latest broadcasters to climb aboard Julian Fellowes’ big-budget Titanic production.

The two channels have signed pre-sale deals for the show with ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVSGE), which is selling distribution rights to the UK-Canada-Hungary coproduction.

Filming of the miniseries (4×60’/2×90′) is due to be completed later this month, ahead of broadcast next April to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ship.

The project was led by UK broadcaster ITV, Shaw Media’s Global in Canada and Ireland’s TV3, while ABC in the US, Australia’s Network Seven, TVNZ in New Zealand, Portugal’s SIC and SVT in Sweden have also signed up for the show.

Titanic is produced by ITV Studios, Deep Indigo Productions, Lookout Point, Sienna Films and Mid Atlantic Films. It was written by Fellowes, who also penned Downton Abbey and Gosford Park.

The ZDF deal was completed by Tobias De Graaff, director of global television distribution at ITVSGE, while the TF1 agreement was completed by David Wilcox, senior sales executive at ITVSGE.
