Canadian prodco Boxing Cats Productions (BCP) has signed a multi-title distribution partnership with Proper Rights that will allow the Toronto-based distributor to circulate three of its latest series.

The agreement will see Proper Rights coordinating pre-sales and international distribution on BCP’s three as-yet-untitled series, which are currently being developed for major broadcasters across North America.

The series include a survival expedition program based in the Yukon, a program that takes an in-depth look at Canada’s biggest fixed rigs, and a character-led paranormal series.

“In this tough market, it is a strategic and important move for us to work collaboratively,” said Natalie Vinet, VP of Proper Rights, in a statement. “We have a strong mandate to grow our third-party content and this deal reaffirms our commitment to work with independent producers throughout the development, financing and distribution process.”

Formed in 2006 by Toronto-based director and producer Brad Brough, BCP creates original programming across reality, formats, factual entertainment and specialist factual television. The company’s credits include Canada’s Greatest Know It All (pictured), And Go! and Patent Bending.
