AMC Networks to Produce Custom Content for Charter Spectrum

by Cate Lecuyer Marian  |  04.26.2017

AMC Networks and Charter Communications revealed a partnership where AMC Studios will develop and produce original programming to run exclusively on Charter’s Spectrum platform.

The first co-produced and co-funded content is expected to premiere in 2018, the companies said. The deal gives Charter an exclusive initial window in the U.S. to run the programs on its own platform. Meanwhile, AMC will retain the rights, and will be able to distribute the content internationally.

“AMC Networks is one of the most respected producers of high-quality original programming in the business and we are proud to partner with them to identify, develop and produce original content that will further differentiate our customer experience and the value we provide in a competitive marketplace.” Tom Montemagno, EVP of Programming Acquisition for Charter Communications, said in a statement.

AMC Studios has grown from one production in 2010, The Walking Dead, to 10 scripted originals in 2016. Series include Fear the Walking Dead, Into the Badlands, The Son, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and the forthcoming The Terror.

“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. This new content partnership is a powerful example of that dynamic at work,” Ed Carroll, AMC Networks COO, said in a statement. “As AMC Studios becomes an increasingly important part of our business, this first-of-its-kind partnership represents a new horizon for us.”
