Distributor Hat Trick International (HTI) has agreed a first look distribution deal with Seadog TV and Film Productions, to represent the Devon-based indie’s forthcoming factual series internationally.

Seadog TV and Film Productions was founded in 2016 by broadcaster and presenter Monty Halls (My Family and The Galapagos; WWII Freedom Trails).

Over the last 10 years Halls has navigated the globe making six series for the BBC, as well as films and series for Discovery, National Geographic, Channel 5, Animal Planet and Channel 4.

The agreement, which extends over a multi-year period, was brokered by HTI Acquisitions Executive Hana Zidek.

Sarah Tong, Director of Sales at Hat Trick International, comments, “The global market is actively seeking authentic and bold factual content which is intriguing and relatable wherever it is screened.  We are delighted to be working with the Seadog team who we know are deeply passionate about the stories they tell.  It’s a unique, forward-thinking indie and we’re excited about the high quality of its work as well as the wide range of subjects it covers, especially in the environmental space.”

Monty Halls, Managing Director Seadog Productions, adds, “We have a multitude of new projects in development for 2021 and are looking forward to extending our programming reach to as diverse an audience as possible around the world.  Hat Trick International has an enviable reputation as a fast-moving distributor which works closely with producers in the unscripted space to secure the best deals for each title they manage.”
