International producer and distributor Prime Entertainment Group has struck a new deal with broadcaster FTV Prima from the Czech Republic for the celebrity series Close Up to air on new channel CNN Prima News.
The 105 x 26’ half-hour entertainment show takes a dive into the glamorous lives of Hollywood’s celebrities such as Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Jake Gyllenhaal, Penelope Cruz, Tom Hardy or Cate Blanchett.

Founded in 1993, Prima is said to be the most-followed channel in the Czech Republic. Its group owner operates eight other TV channels and six radio stations, as well as websites and magazines.

Prime and FTV Prima have been working together since 2017 for a number of science and history documentaries including the internationally acclaimed documentary series The Science of Snow (1x52’), Prisoners of War and Operation Torch (1x52’). Close Up is also airing on channels such as WDR, SABC, Sony AXN, StarTimes and Polsat.

“We are glad to renew our partnership with our long-time partner FTV Prima,” said Prime head of sales, Alexandra Marguerite. “After the range of documentaries on various topics, we are happy the network turned to our celebrity catalogue for the launch of their new channel. It is a true satisfaction to see that our cinema related shows appeal not only to the audience of major movie networks in the region, but also find home on new networks as CNN Prima.”
