AMC Networks-owned WE tv has extended its exclusive distribution deal with Anglo-Dutch production and distribution company Off the Fence.
The renewed deal will see the two companies working together until March 2019 and will see Off the Fence distributing approximately 1,100 hours of linear television and digital content from the U.S. cable net both domestically and internationally.
WE tv’s slate of original programming includes the popular Growing Up Hip Hop (pictured) franchise; docuseries Mary Mary, which follows sisters Erica and Tina Campbell, members of the contemporary gospel group; Love Blows, about a successful, family run matchmaking service in Chicago; and Hustle & Soul, following chef Lawrence Page attempting to make his restaurant the first Michelin-starred soul food eatery.
WE tv and Off the Fence first inked a partnership deal in 2008.
“Over the years, Off the Fence has proven to be great partners and we are very proud of the work we have done together,” said Theresa Patiri, SVP of production and business affairs for WE tv, in a statement. “As we move forward, we know that the team at Off the Fence will support and propel our efforts to reach even wider audiences both domestically and abroad.”
“The WE tv team and Off the Fence have built a close relationship over the years,” added Off the Fence founder and CEO Ellen Windemuth. “WE tv has deep knowledge of the TV trends in the domestic and international marketplace, which makes them ideal partners. We look forward to many more years of expanding their great brand across the globe.”
