Toronto-based production and distribution company Canamedia has acquired exclusive Canadian distribution rights to the U.S.-based CABLEready catalogue.

“We’ve known, respected and been inspired by the guys at Canamedia over the years, so it’s a pleasure to partner with them. As Canada becomes a tougher place to do business, we believe Canamedia can guide our producers and programs through the maze,” said CABLEready president and CEO Gary Lico in a statement.

The CABLEready catalog boasts more than 1,100 hours of programming including such titles as Inside the Actors’ Studio; Lost Treasure Hunters (pictured); the Alison Sweeney and Ali Landry-hosted Hollywood Girls Night; various TV Guide specials such as Favorite TV Weddings and 100 Hollywood Crimes; and Snag Films indie films including Splinters and We Made This Movie.
