Korean, UK producers join for AI TV documentary

South Korean broadcaster MBC and the Korean Communications Agency (KCA) have teamed up with UK independent production company Zig Zag to co-produce a new TV documentary.
The project for a three part documentary titled Future Human: AI (Artificial Intelligence) will be part-funded by content agency KCA, which is part of the government’s Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning. Zig Zag will produce an international version of the series to take to the international broadcast market, and acquire the global rights outside South Korea for the three hour-long shows.

Future Human will include interviews with scientists, AI experts and futurists to explore the latest research, technological developments and future innovations in recognition technology.

“We have spent lots of time recently visiting Seoul and Busan to understand the South Korean TV industry. Having already experienced great success in China and Japan, we’re delighted to extend our relationships in Asia to this thriving market that embodies the best of the region’s sensibilities,” said Danny Fenton, CEO, Zig Zag Productions.

“It’s exciting to start a co-production with such significant international appeal with such a talented production company such as Zig Zag,” said Jinman Kim, executive producerMBC.

The deal was brokered by Paan Media’s CS Lee, international liaising and development producer Gina McDonald and Zig Zag’s commercial director Matt Graff.

“This project is one of the most rewarding in my three years in international co-productions and one of the most fascinating,” said Paan Media’s CS Lee, who is also supervising executive on behalf of MBC.
