Bounce TV Original Series to Be Syndicated Internationally


ATLANTA: Bounce TV is set to syndicate its originally produced content, lining up its first two program licensing agreements, with Viacom International Media Networks and Afrostream.

In a multiyear agreement covering multiple platforms, Viacom International Media Networks licensed the rights to Saints & Sinners, In The Cut, Mann & Wife and My Crazy Roommate. Territories included in the agreement are Sub-Saharan Africa, the U.K. and Ireland, and France plus Canal + Overseas Francophone territories.

Bounce TV’s multiyear agreement with the SVOD service Afrostream also includes In the Cut, Mann & Wife and My Crazy Roommate. Additional shows picked up by Afrostream are Family Time and Off the Chain. Territories included in the deal are Sub-Saharan Africa, France plus overseas Francophone territories, the U.K., Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

“Bounce TV original series are our highest-rated programming and they have huge multi-generational appeal,” said Jonathan Katz, the chief operating officer of Bounce TV. “Syndicating our original content internationally creates another revenue stream and introduces the Bounce TV brand outside the United States. Viacom International Media Networks and Afrostream are leaders in bringing Black culture to fans around the world and we are thrilled to be in business with both companies.”
