TVA Canada Goes for More Bondi Vet


MELBOURNE: TVA Canada has picked up the fifth and sixth seasons of Bondi Vet, a factual-entertainment series from the Fred Media catalogue.

Bondi Vet is now airing in more than 30 million homes across 170-plus territories. The show stars Dr. Chris Brown, a veterinarian. It airs on CASA on Monday, Saturday and Sunday nights, as well as during the afternoon on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Michael Aldrich, the general manager of Fred, commented: "Our friends at TVA have been fantastic supporters of Fred since we launched. We are very excited about renewing Bondi Vet, a title that is fast becoming one of the most popular shows on CASA.

"We look forward to continuing a great partnership with TVA Canada for many series to come."

Johanne Menard, TVA's director of lifestyle content, added: "Bondi Vet's Chris Brown definitely has mass appeal. He is competent, compassionate and charming and that made him an immediate viewer favorite as soon as we put him on air with season one. You want to take him home to look at your pet. Plus you get to see beautiful Bondi Beach and you want to go there."

In addition, TVA Canada has licensed the rights for Your Very First Puppy, which also stars Dr. Brown. That title is also repped by Fred Media.
