Moses Znaimer’s ZoomerMedia has acquired around 250 hours of programming for its ONE: The Body, Mind and Spirit channel from its U.S. counterpart, the lifestyle and wellness channel Veria TV.

Terms of the licensing deal were not disclosed as ZoomerMedia looks to reinvigorate the Canadian specialty channel.

“Veria has an unparalleled television catalog relating to ‘mind, body and spirit’ and this agreement marks the beginning of ZoomerMedia’s plans to re-energize ONE with new content and a refreshed look,” Mark Prasuhn, chief operating and content officer at ZoomerMedia’s TV division said in a statement.

Veria and the Canadian One channel have already coproduced TV series, including The Incurables, hosted by Don Wildman (pictured) and dealing with medical ailments that perplex doctors.
