Jenny Daly’s T Group Productions (Mystery Diners) is expanding its UK presence, partnering with transatlantic production shingle Znak & Jones, launched earlier this fall by veteran reality producers Natalka Znak and Simon Jones.
Under the deal, T Group will team with the London office of Znak & Jones on projects, both original and U.S. formats, to pitch directly to UK broadcasters.
Los Angeles-based unscripted producer T Group made its first foray into the U.K. market when UKTV-owned Dave’s picked up the produced seasons of its American series Storage Hunters. Based on their strong ratings performance, the network has ordered 10 original episodes from T Group, which they are co-producing with All3Media’s North One Television.
Before teaming this year, Znak was CEO of Zodiak USA and Jones was CEO of John de Mol’s Talpa Media USA and COO of Simon Cowell’s Syco TV USA. Both have strong roots in the U.K. TV industry, with their shingle recently landing a pilot deal with ITV for classic format Name That Tune.
