MTG-owned online video network Zoomin.TV has agreed to produce a six-episode original long-form series for the Chinese Internet giant Tencent.
“We’re very pleased to extend and intensify our special relationship with Tencent Video and providing the Gen Z in China a spectacular long-form original series,” said Zoomin.TV CEO, Roger Lodewick.
Tencent Video’s director of documentary content management, Lexian Zhu, said: “The Amazing Drone Race explores the possibilities for a commercial documentary in the field of Gen Z culture.”
The deal expands on an earlier shortform video deal between Zoomin.TV and Tencent, which was agreed last year.
The news also comes in the same week that Zoomin.TV announced a deal with China’s Baidu to produce a 144-episode original series for the company’s short-form platform, Haokan.
