TVGN (TV Guide Network) has entered into an exclusive multi-year agreement with Banijay International, which will see the latter handing international distribution for titles such as Rock This Boat: New Kids on the Block (pictured).

The agreement gives the London-based distributor access to first-run original series and entertainment programming broadcast on TVGN, a U.S cable network jointly owned by CBS and Lionsgate.

“Banijay International is a world class distributor that will expand the delivery and reach of our original programming on an international scale,” said David Wisnia, TVGN’s president of business operations.

In addition to Rock This Boat, which sees fans taking a vacation with some of their favorite musicians, other titles covered under the deal include nine-episode reality TV show The Sorrentinos, and eight-episode behind-the-scenes series The Story Behind.

Banijay MD Karoline Spodsberg said: “The programming included in this deal will expand our growing finished tape catalog with a raft of high quality programming that has strong international sales potential.”

In addition to the new programming, the deal includes TVGN’s back catalog of more than 130 hours, covering both in-house productions and third-party commissions. The deal was brokered by Banijay International’s global acquisitions manager Fanny Baudry.
