Under the four- to six-year agreement, Entourage Ventures will work with Mediawan’s distribution arm Mediawan Rights to co-develop, coproduce and co-distribute the series.

The deal covers future productions, as well as a large number of Mediawan Rights’ existing projects, such as drama Zorro and children’s show The Little Prince & Friends.

Investments and revenue will be shared 50/50, with Mediawan handling the operational distribution of the series. The operation will be financed by a €100m (US$107.7m) fund from Entourage.

Pierre-Antoine Capton, president and co-founder of Mediawan, said: “This is an important step in our deployment strategy. By partnering with an expert like Entourage for the production of series, we continue to achieve our international ambitions.”
