Warner Bros. International Television Production

Founded: 2009

Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) aims to establish or acquire production companies in major television territories around the world in order to become a leading producer of local scripted and non-scripted programming.

In those territories where WBITVP establishes a production base, it operates by developing and producing original programming and also producing local versions of formats owned and controlled by the Warner Bros. Television Group, such as The Bachelor, The World’s Strictest Parents and Who Do You Think You Are? Where WBITVP has no local production capability, it licenses Warner Bros. formats to third parties.

WBITVP has already taken significant steps by acquiring a majority stake in both U.K. production group Shed Media, one of the U.K.’s largest and most successful independent production companies, which operates both in the U.K. and the U.S., and in BlazHoffski Holding B.V., a leading independent television producer in the Netherlands and Belgium.
