Blue Ant Representing Architect Films Lifestyle Fare


Blue Ant International has secured a distribution deal with Architect Films to exclusively represent two new original series and more than 135 hours from the lifestyle producer’s current library.

Architect Films’ catalog includes two seasons of Sugar Showdown, a competition-based series that sees expert bakers compete to make their best dessert incorporating one mystery ingredient. Decked Out is an outdoor construction show that follows charismatic designer/carpenter Paul Lafrance through the process of creating backyard decks with a creative edge.

Blue Ant International will also represent two new greenlights created by Architect Films and available for presale at MIPCOM. Birthday Cake Battle (working title), an original series created for Makeful in Canada, is a baking competition series that, each week, sees two cake-makers battle it out in an attempt to make one child’s most awesome birthday cake imaginable a reality. Lakefront Luxury (working title) is an original series created for the Cottage Life channel in Canada. Lakefront Luxury is a three-house format series that sees a new couple each week hunt for and eventually choose their dream lakefront home.

“Architect Films offers an attractive catalog of top-tier lifestyle content that audiences all over the world can get excited about, including hit series like Extreme Collectors and Sugar Showdown,” said Solange Attwood, the senior VP of Blue Ant International. “From big-budget competition food series to popular lifestyle franchises, Architect Films’ track record helps us continue to deliver on the promise of a reliable pipeline of new and fresh content.”

“We’re very pleased to be working with Blue Ant Media on our two new original shows and the selling of our current catalog,” said Mike Sheerin of Architect Films. “The team at Blue Ant is perfectly suited to representing these Architect titles.”
