UK@Kidscreen Breakfast Briefing 3

With Sean Chu, Founder & CEO, WeKids Group
Sean Chu will give us an insight into the media landscape in China with respect to children’s programming, and how foreign producers can most effectively access it. He will address a number of possible models for how UK producers might work with Chinese partners, including arrangements for distribution in China of UK ready-for-market content; co-productions of new programming targeting both Chinese and global audiences, reciprocal service providers arrangements; or deals incorporating some or all of the foregoing. He will talk about how best to grow long lasting and fruitful business relationships for both UK and Chinese media companies.
