The partnership will focus primarily on global production deals for television.

Sean Buckley, CEO, Buck Productions, told Playback sister publication realscreen Gersh will be recruiting more opportunities for the prodco to expand its content silos (both quality and quantity), starting with a focus on TV.

The Gersh Agency has put an onus on international TV production of late. It recently hired Darah Wagner as VP, global television media and packaging to oversee the generating and packaging of global television content across scripted, non-scripted, alternative and digital platforms through collaboration with broadcasters, content creators and producers worldwide.

Buckley said that focus made the partnership an ideal fit for Buck, which has a track record of successful unscripted TV properties, including Rich Bride Poor Bride, Keys to the VIP and Project Guatemala.

For Buck, working with Gersh will allow it to not only enhance its presence in both Canada and the U.S., but also substantially increase its deal flow internationally.

The deal with Gersh comes on the heels of Buck Productions signing a 40-hour original programming deal with U.S. cable net Reelz for its 2017/18 lineup, and becoming the official video content provider for Hardwired Marketing Group. Both deals allow the company to not only continue to bolster its unscripted catalogue, but also its portfolio of branded content and commercials.
