BuzzTaxi makes first sales under Proper banner

Toronto-based distributor BuzzTaxi Communications has closed its first deals since being acquired by Proper Television earlier this summer.

In June, Proper acquired BuzzTaxi and announced plans to rebrand it as Proper Distribution, though it was still operating under its former name as it scored deals with broadcasters in Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.

Among these, France’s ABGroupe licensed the 10x60mins season one of Survivorman and 12x60mins Survivorman: Ten Day, both of which are action adventurer Les Stroud Productions is behind.

Also in France, Cuisine TV has bought the 52x30mins season one of Cuisine comme Louis, which stars celebrity chef Louis-François Marcotte and comes from Broil Productions.

Discovery Latin America has acquired 1x60mins doc Age of Anxiety and 1x90mins Science of the Soul, both Association Productions; 1x60mins Rude: Where are Our Manners? from Parallel Productions; and The Sound Film’s 1x60mins Dad’s, which has also gone to Channel 8 in Israel.
