American Heroes Channel has acquired U.S. rights to the second season of military series Black Ops (pictured) from UK prodco World Media Rights, with new episodes premiering in June.

The 8 x 50-minute series explores iconic special forces missions through eyewitness and participant interviews, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions. Each show profiles an international incident and its ensuing military operation, such as the infamous Black Hawk Down incident in Somalia.

The series’ second season has also been sold to Netflix in North America and UKTV in the UK, in addition to territories such as Scandinavia, Spain, Australia, Norway and Thailand. The series is distributed internationally by IMG Entertainment.

Black Ops is an outstanding international success and is fast turning into a franchise,” says Alan Griffiths, CEO of World Media Rights, in a statement. “Following Black Ops Two we have another three new series in production, making a total of another 36 hours delivering this year.”
