News Image
Sky Studios and Fremantle's The Apartment have announced a new multi-year development and production partnership.

Under the deal, Sky Studios will provide development funding for a minimum of three shows alongside a commitment to produce.

Lorenzo Mieli, a co-founder of Fremantle's Wildside and producer behind hit shows such as "The Young Pope" and "My Brilliant Friend", became the CEO of The Apartment in January 2020. The newly formed label is a subsidiary of global production and distribution giant Fremantle, which expanded its footprint in Italy by setting up The Apartment. This new label will focus on the creation and development of global drama produced with international talent behind and in front of the camera.

The deal strengthens the relationship between Sky and Lorenzo Mieli who has produced a number of international hits for Sky and HBO including Paolo Sorrentino's recently aired "The New Pope" and Luca Guadagnino's "We Are Who We Are".

Working together, Sky Studios and The Apartment will focus on the creation and development of high-end global drama with a uniquely European sensibility.
