Parthenon Entertainment has sold more than 60 hours of programming, including underwater series Marine Machines (pictured), into Russia and Central and Eastern Europe.
The sale of Marine Machines (13 x 60 minutes) to Russia’s 24Techno TV is the company’s first deal with the broadcaster, and comes after MIPCOM’s Russia-themed event last month. The show looks at the tools used to discover, explore and work in our oceans, under extreme conditions.

Russia K (formerly Kultura), acquired Last Stand of the Templars (1 x 60 minutes, HD) and Giant Monsters (2 x 60 minutes), while Moscow-based broadcaster Red Media Group has acquired Animals that Made History (6 x 30 minutes, HD) for its channel 365 days TV.
Finally, Inter TV Ukraine has acquired a 15 and a half hour programme package for its Inter TV, Mega Channel and K1 channels, with titles including Mystery Files II, Caught in the Act III (1 x 60 minutes, HD) and Ancient Megastructures II (6 x 60 minutes, HD).
