On the pact, Constantin General Manager Jochen Köstler said: “With their robust and growing catalog of content across all genres and formidable development and creative team, Propagate is the ideal partner for Constantin Entertainment. Production is imminent and will continue to ramp up as we look forward to sharing much of Propagate’s great content and formats with our many clients.”
