TVNZ has signed a deal to broadcast the Canadian reality TV series Dussault Inc, which recently started broadcasting on TVNZ-U.
Aimed at the 15-24 year old audience, U is social TV, featuring reality and factual entertainment programming.
Dussault Apparel Inc. is a designer and licenser of high-end quality apparel. Its product line includes hoodies, T-shirts and hats.
Season one of Dussault Inc debuted on CITY TV in Canada in September 2011. Season Two has completed filming in Los Angeles and is tentatively scheduled to be shown in summer 2012.
Founder and designer Jason Dussault commented: "This is great news for the show and I believe for the brand. TVNZ are playing Dussault Inc in prime time and they have our promo materials on their website. Cineflix Rights brokered this distribution deal for the show, they have an excellent reputation and strong sales performance with power players internationally, I look forward to expanding our roster of broadcast partners."
Lucinda Gergley-Garner, head of North American sales and acquisitions at Cineflix Rights, added: "Dussault Inc has all the right ingredients to become an international hit reality series – a young and energetic cast of characters, fashion, celebrities, top international locations and just the right mix of drama and comedy to keep audiences coming back for more. We are confident that more broadcasters will soon follow TVNZ's suit."
