Co-productions rise as Amazon & Netflix get collaborative |
Although Amazon lags behind Netflix, its proportion of co-produced Originals is set to rocket in the future, with quadruple the number recorded in 2017. Over 12 per cent of Netflix’s 2018 releases and upcoming Original shows are co-productions (by Ampere’s estimates), compared to just under 8 per cent of Amazon’s.

Ampere’s data reveals that there is a link between the proportion of co-produced originals and localised originals. 35 per cent of upcoming Netflix and Amazon Originals are localised to a non-US market, compared to 15 per cent of upcoming releases globally. Among these localised titles, co-production deals are rife – 29 per cent of all upcoming localised Originals are co-productions, by Ampere’s estimates.

IBM and Mediaocean ink blockchain partnership with Kellogg's, Kimberly Clark and Unilever as launch clients | The Drum
IBM iX and Mediaocean have lifted the lid on a blockchain network geared towards bringing greater simplicity to the digital media supply chain with brands and publishers including Kellogg's, Kimberly Clark, IBM Watson Advertising and Unilever all on board at launch.
The pair made the announcement as the second day of Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity kicked off.
They claimed that the existing manual auditing solutions currently on offer to the market are too siloed and leave marketers exposed to the risks of fraudulent actors in the market. The newly unveiled program, which is powered by the IBM Blockchain Platform and built on top of Mediaocean’s campaign management platform, looks to solve this when it launches in July.
The platform records all media transactions – from issuing of the purchase order, to the execution of media and payment – in a secure, standardized, and comprehensive manner – made possible by the use of blockchain, with IBM claiming it will provide a “sing source of truth for every media buy”.
