Through the innovation lab Next Station, Eiken and Basque Country broadcaster EITB are preparing to produce the first 4K, Basque-language series.

Not many details have been unveiled so far, as the project is open for ideas until mid-December.

The series will be produced during 2018 and will initially premiere on EITB’s main channel, ETB. Next Station plans to distribute the format on an international level focusing on video-on-demand (VOD) partnerships.

Among the ideas submitted, Eiken and EITB will select three winners who will gain access to a training programme. One will then participate in the series’ filming and production.

Over the past years, the public broadcaster has increasingly focused on digital format production and distribution. Its VOD and online platform is among the most used service in the Northern Spanish region.
