The deal comprises series such as 10x60mins Heavy Lifting, which was for French-Canadian network Historia and followed mobile crane operators; I Wrecked My House (pictured), a 14x30mins/1x60mins HGTV Canada home reno series; and Selling Big, a 26x30mins auction show for Blue Ant Media-owned Cottage Life.
In all, Boat Rocker will have 14 Mountain Road series, and the agreement includes a first-look at new productions.
“For almost two decades, Tim Alp and Mountain Road have been consistently producing high-end, factual and lifestyle programming that has successfully sold all across the globe,” said Jon Rutherford, president, distribution, Boat Rocker Rights. “We are excited to bring their premium content into the Boat Rocker catalogue, and look forward to representing their new properties moving forward.”
Boat Rocker came into existence when Temple Street Productions created a new parent company, Boat Rocker Media, to house its various assets and new distribution division, which former Tricon Films & TV exec Rutherford launched.
