Our co-production solutions include:
Arab Telemedia Group will get in as a co-producer and will pay the budget deficit (up to 50% of the production cost); In return, Arab Telemedia Group will get the exclusive distribution rights to the program and 50% of the distribution revenue.
Arab Telemedia Group can get in a third partner (i.e. TV channel) which will pay 30% of the production cost against getting simultaneous first-run rights to the program. The distribution revenue in this case will be split between the three partners.
Whatever your production budget is, we can guarantee you the best solution to offset your budget shortfalls thus help you make your project come true!
Arab Telemedia Group is one of very few companies in the Middle East that provide product placement services. In addition to executing ‘product placement’ production wise, Arab Telemedia Group can also help you find advertisers who would be interested in placing their brands within your program.
Our sales team is well trained to do this from a to z starting from reading the script carefully, identifying and creating a contact database for prospective clients and negotiating the best deals through deciding the best way to place or embed the products within the program whether visually or verbally up to executing the final insertions and reporting clients on air dates, viewership ratings and web views.
Product placement in TV series is not so common in the Middle East however it is an important revenue stream that can cover a significant part of the huge production costs for many big studios and production companies.
