Leftfield Entertainment-owned prodco Loud TV has secured a strategic development and production deal with Winnipeg- and Toronto-based production outfit Frantic Films.
Under the agreement, which was signed during this year’s Realscreen Summit in Washington, DC, the pair of companies will develop and produce content for the American and Canadian marketplaces, with Loud directing sales for the U.S. and Frantic charged with sales in Canada.
Loud TV’s production credits include FYI’s Tiny House Nation and other series in the franchise including Tiny House Hunting and Tiny House World; FYI’s Food Porn and He Shed, She Shed, as well as Animal Planet’s Restoration Wild, Cooking Channel’s Holy and Hungry and HGTV’s Flipping the Heartland.
Frantic Films, meanwhile, has been behind such hit series as CBC’s Jonny Harris-fronted Still Standing, which is currently filming its sophomore season; CNBC’s ‘Til Debt Do Us Part and Princess; FYI’s The Opener; TruTV’s Masterminds; and Cooking Channel’s Pitchin’ In.
“Having produced programming for a worldwide audience, in genres as varied as factual, docu-reality and comedy, this is a great opportunity for Frantic Films to mine new and creative arenas,” said Frantic Films CEO Jamie Brown (pictured, right) in a statement.
“Together, we have an opportunity to elevate lifestyle programming as we continue to explore fascinating people, cultures and experiences,” added Loud TV president Nick Rigg (left).
