ULTIMA STUDIOS SIGNS AN AGREEMENT WITH SONY PICTURES TELEVISION TO PRODUCE LIONS’ DEN IN NIGERIA
Ultima Studios (Ultima) is excited to announce that it is bringing the world’s number one business reality television show, Lions’ Den back to Nigeria! The programme’s journey back to Nigerian TV screens started a few weeks ago in London, when Ultima’s Chairman/CEO, Mr. ‘Femi Ayeni, signed an agreement with UK-based Sony Pictures Television (SPT) to produce the Nigerian version of Lions’ Den.
Ultima’s choice of Lions’ Den as its next venture is a celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit for which Nigerians are famous. Ultima is excited to produce a programme that will not only provide exciting viewing for viewers at home; but will also provide an opportunity for serious entrepreneurs to attract much-needed investments. Furthermore, as has been the case in all other countries where the show is running, it is not just the entrepreneurs but also the viewers at home that will benefit from the comments made by the Lions.
Mark Young, Senior Vice President, UK, Iberia & Africa Distribution, Sony Pictures Television said: ‘SPT already have a fantastic and longstanding relationship with Ultima Limited and we are thrilled to be working alongside them once more to bring Lion’s Den back to Nigeria. Ultima and SPT have had great success working together on Nigeria’s longest running reality show ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ and we look forward to continuing to develop many more exciting projects in the future.
