Virginia-based indie New Dominion Pictures has entered into an exclusive agreement with TV network and digital media firm Halogen TV for the distribution of the network’s library of original reality-based series, documentaries and specials.

Under the agreement, New Dominion will represent Halogen TV programming in French-speaking Canada, Spanish-speaking America, and internationally. The deal was brokered by Kristen Eppley, senior VP of international distribution at New Dominion, and Marshall Nord, VP of programming at Halogen.

New Dominion will introduce the entire slate of original programming to the international marketplace at MIPCOM in Cannes next month.

Among the programming available will be Jump Shipp (10 x 30-minutes), a reality series featuring advice guru Josh Shipp; Surf Life (1 x 60-minutes, pictured above), a documentary that follows surfer Hagan Kelley; and Tainted Love (10 x 30-minutes), an Emmy-nominated doc series that exposes modern-day slave trading and human trafficking.

Eppley said: “Halogen offers a wide variety of programming from current affairs to lifestyle to humanitarian to eco-entertainment that is certain to have universal appeal.”
