Discovery Networks Latin America is planning to bring a package of more than 70 hours of lifestyle programming for its Latin American territory feeds from Zodiak Rights.

This new deal includes a substantial package of Maverick Television programming including Embarrassing Bodies and season one and two of Embarrassing Teenage Bodies. Embarrassing Bodies is the long-running series that aims to dispel myths surrounding medical conditions deemed to be 'embarrassing," demonstrating that there's no need to feel ashamed because actually, we're all the same.

Discover has also picked up several programmes from UK programming, including the Channel 4 series, The Fabulous Baker Brothers, where two brothers, a chef and butcher , unlock their trade secrets for baking.

"We are delighted to be continuing to supply programming to Discovery Networks in Latin America and see many of our most successful franchises returning to the channels with new series," said. Myriam Lopez-Otazu, vice president of sales for Latin America at Zodiak Rights.
