ABC Commercial reaches agreement with Viasat World for The Street Vet


ABC Commercial today announced it has reached a new agreement with leading international media company Viasat World to bring the acclaimed new factual entertainment series The Street Vet to audiences in Scandinavia and Central and Eastern Europe.

The agreement will see The Street Vet (12 x 30’) arrive exclusively on Viasat World’s pay TV network Viasat Nature in thirty-eight countries across the region from August this year.

Selected by Realscreen as one of the top new series presented at MIPCOM last year, The Street Vet charts the humanitarian exploits of Kwane Stewart, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. As Chief Veterinary Officer for American Humane, Dr Kwane spends his weekends treating the pets of the homeless – from people living on the streets who need help in a crisis, to suburban families doing it tough. Together with his assistant Genesis, the series follows Dr Kwane as he attempts to heal pets and people, one story at a time.

“ABC Commercial is pleased to partner with Viasat World to bring The Street Vet to millions of people throughout Scandinavia and Central and Eastern Europe,” said Jessica Ellis, Head of Content Sales & Distribution, ABC Commercial. “Dr Kwane has proven himself an outstanding new talent and we’re confident this inspiring new series will be met with critical acclaim in these territories.”

“We are thrilled to be adding this heart-warming new factual entertainment series to our robust portfolio of award-winning television content,” said Karin Heijink, VP Pay TV Channels and Products for Viasat World. “On Viasat Nature, we bring our audiences visceral storytelling and leading presenters to explore the unique relationships between humans and animals. The Street Vet does just this as it reveals how important pet ownership can be to society’s most vulnerable, and we‘re delighted to be bringing these inspiring stories to our nature-loving audiences.”

A co-production between Blizzard Road Productions and Vizion House Productions, The Street Vet was filmed in major cities throughout California, including Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco and was Executive Produced by Ray Pedretti. The series is set to premiere on Viasat World’s pay TV network, Viasat Nature in Scandinavia and across Eastern Europe from August this year – with further broadcast announcements to come.
