GO Malta commits to invest €1m in original content

Maltese service provider GO has committed to invest over €1 million over the next three years to support the production of original TV content to be aired by its TV service, exclusively for its customers through a newly launched initiative, GO Originals.

This commitment has significantly increased the support to local production companies and created further opportunities to showcase local talent, both locally and internationally, the company said.

The fund that GO has committed to productions will be allocated following a call for applications and a screening exercise.

Announcing the investment, GO’s chief commercial officer Antonio Ivankovic showed a trailer of 1930s-set period drama Chalet, the first production supported by the company.

“Malta offers a lot of untapped talent that needs support and GO, in its quest to bring original and exciting new entertainment to its viewers, will now be collaborating with local production companies and investing in their original productions which will then be showcased on our TV platform,” said Ivankovic.

“We know that our customers enjoy Maltese TV content, so we just wanted to bring more of what they love whilst supporting the local industry. Furthermore, because of our strong relationships with international TV partners, we shall also be negotiating the rights for this exclusive content to be broadcast overseas, thus creating even more opportunity to showcase Malta and its talent with international audiences. The idea is to build an extensive and rich library of exclusive Maltese content. We are proud of our heritage and culture and want to ensure this is preserved for our viewers to enjoy for many years to come.”
