RAI and SBS Discovery make non-scripted programme acquisitions

Italian broadcaster RAI has bought Hurricane Hunters and Prehistoric Assassins from GRB Entertainment amid a raft of non-scripted programme deals for the US-based distributor.

Other deals include Norway’s SBS Discovery and Ukraine’s Solar Media both acquiring Bloopers, and Canadian specialty channel operator Blue Ant Media’s acquisition of Last Call Food Brawl and Smoked.

TV7 from Bulgaria picked up series one and two of Hurricane Hunters and Full Force Nature as well as Top Travel, How I Made My Millions, American Greed and Titans.

How I Made My Millions was also bought by Middle East Broadcasting, and Kazakhstan’s Prime Media acquired My Beautiful Game.

Mike Lolato, GRB’s senior VP of international distribution, said: “We are thrilled to start the year with great momentum and expect 2014 to be a banner year for GRB Entertainment.”
