Banijay International's Seasons Of Life To Blossom In Ukraine

In a deal concluded at DISCOP 2011, Banijay International, the distribution arm of international production group Banijay, has sold its docu-reality format Seasons of Life to leading commercial TV network STB, in Ukraine.
The deal will see a 5 x 30' local version of the series go into production shortly, ready to premiere in Autumn this year.
Recently hired Sales Executive Luci Burnley who is responsible for sales to Eastern Europe and present at DISCOP said: "We're delighted that the CEE is keen to indulge in a slice of Nordic creativity by recreating this exceptional format from DR Danish Broadcasting Corporation locally in Ukraine.
"Seasons of Life is extremely compelling, its themes are so universal, no viewer in the world could fail to be touched by the stories which unfold within each episode."
Seasons of Life is a docu-reality format which tells the hear-gripping stories of four families as they go through one of life's four seasons - birth, marriage, divorce, death - life's spring, summer, fall and winter. These families have nothing more in common except their rollercoaster ride through one of life's four phases. Every episode of Seasons of Life deals with one specific and powerful theme, such as children, partnership or the everyday family life. Seasons of Life is a highly emotional primetime format with intimate personal stories we call all relate to and identify with.
