Telenet to produce own TV series

Wednesday 17 September 2014 | 09:19 CET | News
Belgian cable operator Telenet plans to start producing its own TV content. The first production will be the TV series 'Chaussée d'Amour', a 10-episode Flemish drama series by the producer deMensen. All the episodes will be released at the same time in 2016 to customers on Telenet's video-on-demand subscriptions Rex and Rio. The strategy is borrowed from Netflix, which has just launched on the Belgian market. The series will be financed from the STAP investment fund, to which Telenet has contributed EUR 30 million in the past four years to support Flemish audiovisual works.
