As part of an effort to expand its scripted TV production in the UK, Sony Pictures Television has acquired a majority stake in the British production company Left Bank Pictures.

Under the agreement, SPT will also distribute future Left Bank Pictures television content, both finished programming and formats, and will have a first look distribution option on feature films produced by the company.

The deal means that SPT now has four production ventures in the U.K. -- Left Bank Pictures, Gogglebox Entertainment, Victory Television and Silver River. Globally, SPT's international production arm operates wholly owned and joint venture companies in 15 countries in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.
