Toronto-based distributor Proper Rights has secured deals with nets in Brazil, Germany, Finland and Switzerland for the Proper Television-made series Don’t Drive Here.

The series follows host Andrew Younghusband (pictured, left) as he travels the globe, learning to navigate six of the world’s worst traffic cities like the locals do.

In Brazil, multichannel cable and satellite TV provider Globosat picked up the rights to seasons one and two of the show, while over in Europe, German news channel N24 purchased the rights to the second season.

Elsewhere, Finnish pubcaster YLE acquired seasons one and two, while Swiss broadcaster SRF bought season two for German-speaking audiences.

“Driving is one of the most universal activities on the planet, and yet the driving cultures around the planet are insanely different. This show is the perfect combination of the familiar and the outlandish,” said Guy O’Sullivan, president of Proper Rights and executive producer of Don’t Drive Here, in a statement.
