Extreme Sports Channel picks up The Dudesons

The Extreme Sports Channel is to air The Dudesons across its European channels after striking a volume deal with distributor Target Entertainment.

This comes as the channel looks to expand into factual entertainment programming, moving away from only airing action sports events.

Extreme Sports Channel, which is owned by Chello Zone, has picked up seasons three and four of Finnish stunt comedy The Dudesons as well as The Dudesons Movie.

The Dudesons Movie
will air on its UK, French, Polish and pan-European feed, while the 8x30mins third season will air in France and the 8x30mins fourth season will air in the UK.

The network also picked up one-off documentary The Men Who Jump Off Buildings, which follows a group of base jumpers who jump off famous landmarks including Nelson’s Column and the Blackpool Tower.
