Launch of New Television Label



Zinc Media Group plc (AIM: ZIN), the TV and multimedia content producer, is
pleased to announce the launch of a new television label, Rex, to address the
growth in popular factual and documentaries genre. This new label will be led
by BAFTA-winning programme maker Lana Salah.


Lana Salah joined the Group in the last few weeks as Creative Director of Rex
and will be reuniting with former Shine TV colleague Tanya Shaw, who started
in the role of Managing Director of Zinc Television in January. This latest
hire continues the transformation of Zinc's television offering and supports
the next generation of talent. Salah is widely renowned for her work on
high-profile, long-running reality series such as SAS: Who Dares Wins, First
Dates and Celebrity First Dates.  She has not only executive-produced some of
the UK's leading popular factual series, but her career also spans a wide
range of wider factual programming.


As one of the market leaders in factual programme production, Zinc has a
fantastic portfolio of production labels. The launch of Rex enables the
Company to combine Lana's significant experience with Zinc's passion for
making premium, popular factual and documentary programming. Rex sits
perfectly alongside Red Sauce, with its factual entertainment ambitions and
its regional footprint, and perfectly complements Tern's work in Scotland and
Northern Ireland.  Under Rex, Zinc will look to create content that brings a
premium sensibility to popular factual and documentaries, working with the
best on-screen talent to create must-watch, returnable series for the broadest
possible audiences.


Tanya Shaw, Managing Director of Zinc Television, commented:


"Lana is an extraordinarily versatile and well-respected programme maker. With
over 20 years of production experience on some of the UK's biggest popular
factual series, from talent-led returning series to premium documentary series
and singles, she has an extremely strong track record. I am beyond delighted
that she is joining the team. Zinc has gained a positive creative force and I
am thrilled that she is going to be heading up our newest label."
