BBC Studios and the Gazprom-Media FTA channel Pyatnitsa! (‘Friday!’) have announced that they will continue their local partnership for the BBC Planet franchise.
The Gazprom Media-owned TV channel Pyatnitsa has sold Amazon Prime Video the rights to what will be the first-ever Russian reality show to appear on the platform.
Ren TV and Pyatnitsa were the star performers in Russia’s TV industry in 2016, with both growing their revenues by around 20%.
Gazprom Media has reached an agreement with Dailymotion, the online video service owned by Vivendi that was permanently blocked in Russia in January this year.
