Viacom Victorious with more sales

Broadcasters across the globe have bought Victorious, Viacom-owned Nickelodeon’s high school-set live action series.

The music-themed show has gone to ORF (Austria), DR (Denmark), Telenica (Nicaragua), Venevision (Venezuela), Montecarlo TV (Uruguay) and Fiji Broadcasting (Fiji). TV Globo (Brazil), CiTV (UK), TF1 (France), Rai (Italy) and Vrak TV (Canada) are among others that have recently acquired the show.

Sister Nickelodeon’s live-actioner Big Time Rush has scored sales with TVE (Spain), Teletica (Costa Rica) and Telenica. RTM (Malaysia) and Fiji Broadcasting also bought the show from Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN).

Elsewhere, teen fashion series True Jackson has found homes on Latin Americans broadcasters, while iCarly has gone to Network Ten (Australia) and Venevision. TVE has relicensed the latter until 2016 and new seasons will run on Mediaset (Italy), DR, RSI (Switzerland), CNBC-e (Turkey) and Vrak.

Further deals have been struck with New Zealand, Brazilian, Colombian and Fijian broadcasters.

The sales comes after VIMN’s parent Viacom took a undisclosed majority stake in mixed martial arts promotion Bellator last week. It will begin running Bellator programming on male-skewed US cablenet Spike TV in 2013.

This came after Viacom’s deal with Bellator’s rival UFC came to an end this year. UFC subsequently signed am alternative deal with Fox.
