Content creation and development company Uncommon Content has announced a deal that will allow multimedia entertainment studio Electus sell two YouTube series, Capture and Ex-Pats, to broadcasters internationally.
"As the media landscape evolves, the demand for non-linear content by traditional linear broadcasters has begun to increase significantly," said John Pollak, president of Electus International. "Through exceptionally high quality series like Capture and Ex-Pats, we are able to continue to lead the charge of delivering to our clients the most sought after content on the market to today, regardless of where it originates from."
Both series were originally produced by Uncommon for its YouTube Reserve Channel. The deal marks the first time Uncommon Content has contracted to license international distribution rights to Reserve Channel programming.
"We're very proud of the shows we're creating and Electus is the perfect partner to help us expand our viewership internationally," said Kevin Law, CEO of Uncommon Content.
The 12 episodes of Capture provide a fresh and informative look at the art of photography and the stories behind the images. Ex-Pats meanwhile travels the world to explore the extraordinary stories of those who reside in a country and culture other than that of their upbringing. The 12-episode season immerses the audience into the highs and lows of living in a foreign country.
