Quebec-based production and distribution group Attraction has acquired Fatal Vows prodco CMJ Productions.
Montreal-based CMJ makes English and French-language factual programming and is run by John Kuyk (right). He will remain in charge following the acquisition, alongside staffers including Judith Beauchemin. Former A+E exec Michael Katz is also at the prodco.
As well as Investigation Discovery’s Fatal Vows, CMJ makes series including true crime show Impostors, A Stranger in My Home and factual offering The Will: Family Secrets Revealed.
“Adding CMJ Productions to Attraction’s asset portfolio will not only enable us to diversify our offering, but also significantly contribute to expanding our organisation’s presence across English-language markets in Canada and worldwide.”
Kuyk said: “On behalf of everyone at CMJ Productions, it’s both a pleasure and honour to join the ranks of Attraction Media, a major player in the TV and film industries.
“This transaction will take our team to the next level through the expertise and resources of a visionary and energetic company.”
