Distributor ZDF Enterprises has acquired a package of 63 hours of programming from National Geographic Channels U.S. at MIPTV in Cannes.

The package includes a variety of series and specials originally commissioned by NGC U.S. which ZDF Enterprises will distribute worldwide outside the U.S. Following on from the first deal between the companies in 2010, the new slate adds 33 hours of series, including Rocket City Scientists, Najavo Police and CIA Confidential.

The deal also adds seasons three and four of Alaska State Troopers – adding to ZDF Enterprises’ catalog which already contains the first two seasons – and season four of Hard Times.

“This new deal furthers our commitment to growing relationships with important international partners,” said David Lyle, CEO of NGC U.S. “ZDF Enterprises is an important partner for our networks in acquisitions, coproductions and distribution, and we look forward to not only continuing but expanding our work together.”

Alexander Coridass, president and CEO of ZDF Enterprises, added: “The success we’ve encountered with the first 60 hours of programs has proven National Geographic’s magical touch with respect to program concepts and realization.

“The unique mix of serious information, action, quest, humor and mystery makes these factual programs winners among all demographics. They’re a truly important complement to our existing catalog.”
