Electus has gained the international distribution rights to digital production company Uncommon Content’s YouTube series Capture and Ex-Pats. 

Both titles were originally produced for Uncommon’s YouTube channel, Reserve Channel. Capture looks at the art of photography and the story behind images, with host photographer Mark Seliger; while Ex-Pats follows host Savannah Jane Buffet as she travels the world to find the highs and lows of living in a foreign country.

The deal is the first time Uncommon Content has licensed international distribution rights to Reserve Channel programming.

“We’re very proud of the shows we’re creating and Electus is the perfect partner to help us expand our viewership internationally,” said Kevin Law, CEO of Uncommon Content.

“As the media landscape evolves, the demand for non-linear content by traditional linear broadcasters has begun to increase significantly,” added John Pollak, president of Electus International. “Through exceptionally high quality series like Capture and Ex-Pats, we are able to continue to lead the charge of delivering to our clients the most sought-after content on the market today, regardless of where it originates from.”
