TVF International Sells Titles to MENA & Eastern Mediterranean


TVF International has closed several sales for new factual titles such as A Dog for Life in the Middle East, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean.

In Israel, YES acquired A Dog for Life, which first aired on Netflix Africa, for its VOD platform. The series follows families on their journeys to adopt dogs from a rescue shelter.

Greek media company Tanweer Alliances Single Member picked up over 45 hours of content for ERT. Programs included in the deal are the Channel 4 series Autumn on Jimmy’s Farm and Spring on Jimmy’s Farm, as well as Korean pubcaster EBS’s China’s Dragon Emperor.

In MENA, OSN scored a range of content, including travel shows On Safari and Destination Vacation, as well as Misunderstandings of Miscarriage.

Sam Joyce, senior sales, acquisitions and marketing executive at TVF International, said: “TVF International has just closed the books on a record year, and the work we have been doing with the support of our clients in these regions has been a key aspect of this success story. [Sales executives] Colette [Webber] and Daniyal [Bari]’s in-depth knowledge of these territories puts them in pole position to continue TVF’s success at supplying premium factual programming to our many esteemed broadcast partners in these regions.”
