Stamford-based Charter Communications and New York-based AMC Networks Inc. have announced a partnership in which AMC Studios will develop and co-produce original programming for Charter’s Spectrum cable television platform.
In this partnership, Charter will have the exclusive U.S. initial window to this new content while AMC Studios will retain subsequent rights, including international distribution. The companies expect the first content co-produced and co-funded through this endeavor will be broadcast on Charter Spectrum in 2018.
“Charter believes that quality customer care is a cornerstone of their success, and by delivering unique, high-value products and services they continue to differentiate the Spectrum customer experience,” said Ed Carroll, chief operating officer at AMC Networks.
“This is an exciting deal that furthers Charter’s goal of providing its customers with world-class products and services,” said Tom Montemagno, executive vice president of programming acquisition for Charter Communications.
