Canadian producer-distributor Entertainment One (eOne) has acquired the U.S. and international rights to Buck Productions’ factual titles The Project: Guatemala (pictured) and Our Family Vacation.

The Project: Guatemala, which airs on OLN and CityTV in Canada, follows nine unsuspecting twenty-something travelers who head to Guatemala on a six-week vacation, only to find out they are volunteering on a construction project for a local charity.

In Our Family Vacation, two different families travel the world on vacation filming everything that happens with their own cameras. The series is a coproduction with Blue Ant Media and airs on cable net Travel + Escape in Canada.

eOne will bring both formats to MIPCOM this month. Other Buck-produced titles in the distributor’s catalog include the scripted series Death Warrior, Defendor and Unrivaled.

“Buck Productions is pleased to continue our long-standing partnership with eOne,” said Buck CEO Sean Buckley in a statement. “There has always been a strong synergy between our companies, and we are certain eOne is the right partner to share two of our latest and proudest projects, Our Family Vacation and The Project: Guatemala, across the U.S. and internationally.”
