Prospectors Among Passion’s CEE Sales


LONDON: Passion Distribution has closed deals for several factual titles, including season four of Prospectors, across Central and Eastern Europe, with a raft of sales secured in Poland.

Fokus TV in Poland acquired a package of more than 60 hours of programming. The deal covers male-skewed factual-entertainment shows such as Prospectors season four, season three of Timber Kings and Cold Water Cowboys seasons two and three. Other pickups include Air Pressure and the first two seasons of Why Planes Crash.

TVN Poland, meanwhile, scooped up a package totaling 20 hours, including season 31 of the documentary series Unreported World and Weather Gone Viral for the TTV channel. Discovery Poland signed on for the second season of Make You Laugh Out Loud.

Elsewhere, Discovery CEEMEA picked up the documentaries Seventy with a Six Pick and How the Rich Get Hitched.

Agnes Mbye, Passion Distribution’s sales manager, said, “Poland continues to be our biggest market in Central Europe thanks to the growing number of free DTT channels. Interestingly, their viewers look for programs they are familiar with, which makes the market even more competitive but also allows for more windowing.”
