Sino-British television coproductions and collaborations are growing as China looks to shake off its image as a content buyer and transform itself into a global producer in different formats.

With the signing of the UK-China Television Co-Production Treaty in 2016, the United Kingdom became the second country to have both movie and TV coproduction treaties with China.

One of the first China-UK productions to result was between Huace Film and TV and the British broadcaster ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

They collaborated on a Chinese version of the UK’s Dancing on Ice, which was named Stars on Ice in China. The show was a critical and commercial success and the two companies vowed to continue working together, producing content for the Chinese market.
