Upcoming Sony Central Europe channel buys 100 hours from Electus

New Sony Pictures Television-operated Central European channel AXN Black has bought more than 100 hours of programming from US-based multimedia studio Electus.

Shows included in the deal with Electus’ global programming arm Electus International are CMT’s unscripted series Dog and Beth: On the Hunt and TNT’s reality competition series The Hero, plus Car Lot Rescue, Duck Commander, Meat Eater and Unsealed Conspiracy.

This comes ahead of AXN Black’s launch across Central Europe in Poland, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Slovakia next month.

In July, SPT announced the launch of the channel, which will run fast-paced scripted series and unscripted shows, along with AXN White, which will focus on female-skewing drama from the US and Europe.
