Distributor Banijay International has teamed with Singapore-based producer-distributor Bomanbridge Media to sell two animal-focused series to Thai cabsat operator TrueVisions.

The series include season one of Screentime New Zealand-produced dog makeover series Pound Pups to Dog Stars (10 x 30 minutes; pictured) and Screentime Australia’s rural vet program Village Vets (12 x 30 minutes).

“Our aim has been to build a library of English-language, finished tape programming which complements our vast format catalog,” said Sebastian Burkhardt, SVP of international distribution at Banijay International, in a statement.

“We are continuing to acquire programming from leading independent producers which has strong international appeal. We are very pleased that these engaging reality series, produced by Screentime, will hit screens in Asia later in 2015,” he added.
