- Zinc Media signed an exclusive representation deal with ICM Partners and announced two new commissions that were won by its subsidiaries Reef Television and Tern Television.

ICM is one of the world's largest talent and literary agencies with offices in New York, Los Angeles, and London. The agency represents creative and technical talent in the fields of motion picture, television, books, music, live performance, branded entertainment, and new media.

The Ccmpany believes the best route to market in the US at the current time is to enter into an exclusive representation agreement covering the US market with a specialist US agent.

Under the terms of an initial one year exclusive deal ICM will work with Zinc Media to secure US commissions, working with all of the company's TV brands.

Following the success of the first two series of 'Britain at Low Tide', Tern Television has been commissioned by Channel 4 for series three.

This show, which is made out of Tern's Belfast office, shows the depth and strength of Zinc's 'Nations and Regions' strategy and demonstrates the company's alignment with the trend by the UK broadcasters to commission more and more content outside of London.

Growing the scale of its 'Nations and Regions' TV production business is a core element of the company's strategy.

Additionally, Reef Television was commissioned to produce a new access led documentary series for BBC Daytime.

This 10-part crime series is a first in this genre for the Reef team and the first crime commission won under the new Reef senior management team. It demonstrates the versatility of the team, the high regard they are held in as leaders in daytime-TV production and their ability to implement their new strategy of renewal in the Reef Television business.

The company expects to announce further significant commission wins across other of the TV subsidiaries in the near term.
