Discovery Communications is boosting its stake in Colombia, where it recently opened an office to explore co-production opportunities. The company today announced a co-production partnership with the country’s Ministry of Information Technology and Communications to create content for and about Colombia and spur training programs there. The projects are intended to “contribute to the development and promotion of Colombian culture, reflecting the country’s current reality and history”, according to the parties. The accord — the first-ever between the nation and a media company — was signed in Bogota. The first project is set to hit public television there this year.
