Universal Content Productions (formerly known as Universal Cable Productions) (UCP) is a television production arm of NBCUniversal, and a subsidiary of Universal Television, focused on productions for cable networks. Distribution and sales are handled by corporate sibling NBCUniversal Television Distribution.

Established in mid-2008, UCP took over production of four series then produced by Universal Media Studios, including Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001–2011), Monk (2002–2009), Psych (2006–2014) and Eureka (2006–2012).

In early 2019, the company changed its name from Universal Cable Productions to Universal Content Productions in a move to signify its expansion to streaming.
