FremantleMedia International renews Jamie Oliver output deal

MUMBAI: FremantleMedia International (FMI), the global distribution division of FremantleMedia, one of the largest creators, producers and distributors of television entertainment brands in the world, has extended its output deal with Jamie Oliver's indie, Fresh One Productions Ltd, it announced today. Under the terms of the arrangement, FremantleMedia International will continue to be the exclusive distribution and first-look partner for all Fresh One productions featuring Jamie Oliver. The deal allows FMI to distribute tape sales from Oliver's existing shows- such as Jamie's Money Saving Meals/Save With Jamie; Jamie and Jimmy's Friday Night Feasts and Jamie's 15-Minute Meals - and includes those made under the terms of the original deal as well as any future titles.

Bob McCourt, Acting CEO, FremantleMedia International, said, "Jamie Oliver is one of the world's most pioneering and sought-after TV personalities, renowned for his global campaigning work as well as the diversity and quality of his output. He has been a stalwart of the FremantleMedia International catalogue for over a decade and I'm delighted that we are continuing our relationship with him and the team at Fresh One Productions." Tara Donovan, CEO, Jamie Oliver Media added: "We are delighted to be continuing the relationship with FremantleMedia International. Their international sales network has helped to take our shows across the world and in doing so, has spread the message that food and home-cooking is a joy to be embraced by everyone."

FMI began its relationship with Fresh One in 2002, when it began distributing Oliver's Twist on behalf of the international chef and campaigner. That title continues to whet the appetite of international buyers and has so far been sold to over 200 territories. Meanwhile, Oliver's most recent title Jamie's Money Saving Meals/Save with Jamie, which FMI launched at MIPCOM in October 2013, has already sold to over 100 territories to date.

In April, FMI will be bringing two new Oliver titles to the international marketplace: Jamie and Jimmy's Food Fight Club S2, in which childhood friends Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty embark on further culinary adventures, creating incredible food with celebrity guests including Usain Bolt and Sienna Miller, and Jamie's Festive Feasts a celebration of the lazy winter days at the end of the year after Christmas when it's time to kick back, spend some quality time with family and friends, and cook up some amazing dishes.

Founded by Jamie Oliver in 2001 and now led by the creative brains behind hit shows from The X-Factor and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Jamie's Kitchen and 30-Minute Meals to Operatunity and Ballet Changed My Life, the company has broadened out to make acclaimed food formats such as Chef Race, The Restaurant Inspector and Two Greedy Italians; hit formats such as Dream School - now in its second season in the US; documentary series and singles such as The Men Who Made Us Fat/Thin, The Sound of Musicals, Richard Pryor Omit the Logic, Mad Dog: Gaddafi's Secret World and even dramas such as Spies of Warsaw with David Tennant.
