Red Arrow Entertainment Group, the production subsidiary of German TV group ProSiebenSat.1, has purchased the majority stake in US production company Half Yard Productions, one of the leading US providers of reality series, documentaries and wedding shows.

The broadcasters for which Half Yard has been producing in the past years include National Geographic (Diggers), History (How the States Got Their Shapes), Animal Planet (Hillbilly Handfishin') and Discovery (American Loggers). The company, founded in 2006, will continue to be headed by Sean Gallagher and Abby Greensfelder.
