Beyond Rights announces two significant pan-territory deals in Latin America, one with NBC Universal, the other with Discovery.
NBC Universal Latin America has acquired 129 hours of Beyond Rights true crime content, featuring the titles Confessions of a Serial Killer (two series, 18 x 60), Murder Made Me Famous (seven series, 45 x 60), Fatal Vows (four series, 52 x 60) and Inside Crime (two series, 14 x 60).
The Discovery Latin America package totals 93 hours with a focus on lifestyle content. It comprises series three of Love It Or List It UK (8 x 60), series four and five of Love It Or List It Vancouver (52 x 60), and all nine seasons of plastic surgery series Botched Up Bodies (33 x 60).
“I am delighted to have concluded these deals with two such prestigious pan-regional players as Discovery and NBC Universal,” said Lenneke de Jong, Beyond Rights’ VP of sales for Latin America. “There is a great appetite for good true crime and lifestyle content in Latin America, and we not only have several compelling titles in each genre, but also many returning series and franchise extensions. This can provide our broadcast partners with strong, recognisable brands for their channels, as well as valuable volume to help hook and grow their audiences.”
