UK producer sought for China doc

China

A UK production company is being sought by a Chinese research and policy think tank to make a £1.2m documentary with the working title Understanding China.

Chinese producer Huang Wei and China Institute for Innovation and Development Strategy (CIIDS) want a UK partner for a six-part series looking at China’s economic growth and development over the past 400 years.

“The UK is globally renowned for producing high-quality factual programming for a global audience,” said Huang Wei. 

“We are looking for a UK production partner with rich experience in political, economic, cultural documentary development and production, and with the ability to ensure the film [is] to be produced on schedule for international broadcast partners.”

Eleven Chinese production delegates are in London this week for the third annual UK China Creative Exchange programme, hosted by Pact and designed to foster more collaboration between content producers in the UK and China, and to stimulate trade.

Each Chinese delegate will visit three UK indie production companies this week to discuss co-development projects.

“Bringing likeminded producers together from the UK and China is key to fostering collaboration,” said Dawn McCarthy-Simpson MBE, Pact’s managing director of business development and global strategy, in a statement.
