KERALA: BBC Studios International Production has signed a first-look development deal with award-winning documentary maker Alex Gale. The deal will see Gale co-develop premium non-scripted content with BBC Studios local production companies in Australia, India, South Africa, and Germany. These developed programs will be produced and distributed internationally by BBC Studios.

Alex Gale is the founder of Amped Picture, and has previously directed Amazon Prime’s Sons Of The Soil for BBC Studios India. Other previous works of Gale include BBC documentaries Scotland 78: A Love Story, Glasgow 1967: The Lisbon Lions, and The Fort.

"Alex is a remarkable documentarian who has a unique approach to creating candid and thought-provoking films; his handle on the sporting world and bringing their iconic figures and stories to life are unparalleled. We’ve been lucky enough to partner with Alex previously and so we’re incredibly proud to be working with him to create original content for our audiences worldwide," said BBC Studios managing director of international productions Matt Forde.

Gale revealed that the aim of the partnership is ''to create high production value docuseries with characteristically local narratives that also have the potential to engage an international audience."

"It’s very exciting, there’s such a range of untapped storytelling opportunities across these distinct and contrasting cultures. BBC Studios’ local knowledge, industry relationships, and brand recognition in these countries is invaluable, it will help us secure access to talent, previously unseen environments and institutions," he added.
