Canadian channels operator ZoomerMedia has acquired more than 50 hours of programming from ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVSGE), including the sixth and seventh seasons of comedy-drama Cold Feet.

The show, which is produced by Big Talk Productions for UK commercial broadcaster ITV, had its North American premiere earlier this month on ZoomerMedia’s VisionTV channel.

The recently commissioned seventh season of the show, reported by C21 at Mipcom in October, is also included in the deal.

Three other ITVSGE shows make up the package, including the new run of Gino’s Italian Escape: Hidden Italy as well as 50 episodes of Come Dine with Me UK, produced by Shiver Productions.

Both will air on the OneTV channel, while the drama Brief Encounters, will head to VisionTV.

Craig Bohland, VP of sales for Canada for ITVSGE, said: “VisionTV is already the home of Victoria and Poldark in Canada, so it’s great to be introducing yet more new drama, while OneTV will welcome back two very successful entertainment shows with food at their core.”
