Anglo-Canadian sales house Cineflix International Distribution has sold docusoaps Air Ways and Campus PD to broadcasters across Europe, Australia, North America and the Middle East.

Air Ways (8 x 30 minutes) follows staff and passengers at an Australian budget airline, and has been picked up by broadcasters across the Nordic territories. Both seasons of the Seven Network Australia series have been acquired by Channel Four Finland, TV Norge Norway and Kanal 5 Sweden.

The title has been acquired in the UK by cablenet Sky Living, as well as by SBS in the Netherlands, Tele 5 in Poland and Vision Media Entertainment in Kuwait.

Campus PD (36 x 30 minutes), meanwhile, has been generating interest in Australia, with sales of the first two seasons of the student law-enforcement series inked with Fox’s Biography Channel and Seven Network.

In North America, Rogers Broadcasting has taken the first two seasons for Canada, while all three seasons have been acquired by the U.S. cable and satellite channel G4, which has also taken the second series for international broadcast.

The show, which looks at university life from the perspective of the campus police whose job it is to keep students safe, will also debut in Norway via a deal with Viasat Broadcasting for TV2.

Cineflix International president Paul Heaney said: “The best docusoaps and ob-docs open the door on a hidden world and reveal its secrets with the help of a convincing and entertaining narrative and a compelling cast of characters. This is what Air Ways and Campus PD deliver.”
