Blue Ant International Inks Latin American Deals


Blue Ant International has secured sales with linear and streaming platforms across Latin America for a range of programs, including Harry and Meghan: Two Troubled Years.

Pay-TV service DIRECTV and streaming platform DIRECTV GO licensed The Royal Documentaries (ITN Productions), a package of 20 one-off documentaries about the royal family, in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Mexico. The package includes Harry and Meghan: Two Troubled Years.

DIRECTV and DIRECTV GO also picked up Bathsheba, which tells the true story behind the horror film The Conjuring, using the archives of paranormal investigators and family members who were terrorized by a 19th-century ghost believed by many to be a witch named Bathsheba Sherman.

AMC Networks International—Latin America picked up a package from Love Nature’s library in Mexico, South America and Central America. Series included in the deal are Baby Animals, following animals from birth to adulthood, and Strange Creatures, detailing the adaptations, mating rituals and other abnormalities among the weirdest wild animals.

In Brazil, Globosat acquired the exclusive pay-TV and SVOD rights for Into the Blue, exploring the various marine ecosystems and underwater creatures in the Coral Triangle. Sky Brazil picked up The Royal Documentaries.

“These most recent sales are a reflection of popular and ratings-driving titles across paranormal, documentaries and natural history,” said Maria Ibarra, VP of international sales at Blue Ant International. “The broad range of content illustrates how versatile and diverse our catalog is for providing programming for all types of audiences. Overseeing both presales and content licensing with our Latin American buyers, I look forward to being in contact with LatAm partners for our most current content offerings.”
