Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITP) is the global television production arm of Warner Bros. International Television.

The division was formed in 2009 to produce original programming or local adaptations of Warner Bros. formats in non-U.S. territories.[1][2]

The company has also acquired majority stakes in numerous production companies including Shed Media in the United Kingdom and BlazHoffski Holding B.V. (including Dahl TV and BlazHoffSki Levy Productions) in the Netherlands and Belgium.[3] In 2014, the company acquired Netherlands-based Eyeworks and its global subsidiaries outside North America in a US$270 million deal, giving Warner Bros. businesses in 15 new territories.[4]
