Bristow Global Media has sold two of its series to broadcasters in the U.S. and Australia, as well as other territories.

Haunted Hospitals (pictured, 13 x 60 minutes) and Paranormal 9-1-1 (13 x 60 minutes) have been acquired by Travel Channel in the U.S. and the Crime + Investigation channel in Australia. Haunted Hospitals has also been picked up by Discovery’s TLC in Germany, Plan├Ęte+ France and Pan Asia subscription service Celestial Tiger Entertainment.

All deals were brokered by Kew Media Distribution. Bristow Global Media became part of the Kew Media Group family in 2017.

Haunted Hospitals and Paranormal 9-1-1 were created by BGM’s development team, led by president and CEO Julie Bristow; Marlo Miazga, vice president of content and Sean Connolly, vice president of development.

In a statement, Bristow said: “We’re particularly pleased to have closed our first deal with Travel Channel, since growing BGM’s business in the US is one of our core ambitions.”
