BossaNova Pacts with AMCNI for Motorway Patrol


BossaNova has secured a multi-territory deal with CBS Reality, a channel owned by AMC Networks International UK (AMCNI UK) and ViacomCBS Networks International, for ten seasons of Motorway Patrol.

Produced by Greenstone, Motorway Patrol has been acquired to air on CBS Reality in a pan-European deal featuring more than 35 territories, plus Poland, Russia, CIS, Africa and the Middle East.

Motorway Patrol gives audiences a look at those who drive on New Zealand’s motorways. It offers access to the officers who are patrolling the motorways as well as CCTV footage from the motorway cameras.

AMCNI UK has also acquired season 12 of Border Patrol, produced by Greenstone, and the third season of Stampede Production’s Border Force USA: The Bridges for CBS Reality in Poland and Africa.

Tatjana Kostovski, senior sales manager for CEE, Iberia, Asia, Latin America and MENA at BossaNova, said: “We at BossaNova are really pleased to be able to place ten seasons of Motorway Patrol with CBS Reality, which is the perfect home for it. Greenstone is known for its high-caliber, returning factual programming and AMC Networks International UK clearly recognizes this quality offering from our slate. The show lends itself very well to such a pan-regional deal, and I am delighted to work with Alina Florea to bring Motorway Patrol to viewers in so many territories.”

Florea, VP of acquisitions and content partnerships at AMCNI UK, said: “Motorway Patrol and new seasons of Border Patrol and Border Force USA: The Bridges will be great additions to CBS Reality’s EMEA slate of popular factual-entertainment content. BossaNova made the acquisition process seamless, and I look forward to expanding our collaboration in the near future.”
