Canada’s Blue Ant Media has penned a five-year deal with Anglo-Dutch producer-distributor Off the Fence (OTF), covering distribution and pre-sales.

The deal includes a first-look agreement on the distribution of OTF’s programming catalog to the Canadian market.

The deal is a continuation of an existing relationship between the two parties, secured as a result of a successful preceding five year partnership, which saw Blue Ant Media co-finance OTF’s Wildest franchise and numerous other titles including Life Stories, Monkey Thieves, Colditz – The Legend and Titanic – The Band Played On.

The deal was brokered by Blue Ant Media exec VP of programming and production Vanessa Case, and OTF sales manager Mark Dee-Shapland.
