UK distributor Hat Trick International (HTI) and indie prodco Keo Films have extended their distribution deal, originally struck in March this year, for factual content.

The deal was originally to include around 50 hours of programming, but will now total more than 100 hours of new and back catalog content, after HTI closed a number of deals for Keo titles.

Living with the Amish has sold to more than 100 territories including SBS Australia, TVNZ New Zealand, TV Norge Norway and SVT Sweden, while Hugh’s Three Hungry Boys and Jerusalem on a Plate have each sold to undisclosed networks in more than 40 countries.

Additionally, HTI has presold a number of Keo shows due to launch at MIPCOM to SBS Australia, including Exploring China, Welcome to India, Welcome to Bradford and Yotam Ottolenghi’s Mediterranean Feast.

Keo MD Debbie Manners said: “We are now well on the way to consolidating our entire catalogue under one distribution house which can exploit our content to its full potential.”

HTI director of sales Sarah Tong added: “We’ve demonstrated the quality of the portfolio by closing these extensive sales and can’t wait to start working on the new titles, including the latest in the River Cottage franchise.”
