London-based distributor DRG has racked up a number of sales with Latin American broadcasters as NATPE kicks off, including factual entertainment series Choccywoccydoodah (pictured).

Fox Latin American Channels acquired series two and three of Choccywoccydoodah, which focuses on the colorful cake shop in Brighton of the same name; as well as the 13-part, half-hour series Home by Novogratz.

Choccywoccydoodah is produced by Twofour for UKTV’s Good Food, while Home by Novogratz, a series following husband and wife team Bob and Cortney as they showcase their unique design aesthetic, is a Left Right production for U.S. cable network HGTV.

Brazilian pay TV platform, Globosat, acquired a 40-hour package, which included The Stafford Brothers, a 16-part, half-hour reality series produced by WD Entertainment.

“Latin America is a key region and offers a wealth of opportunities for a multi-genre catalog owner like DRG,” said Carolina den Baas, DRG’s senior sales executive for Latin America.
