Looking to buff up its catalogue, Tricon Films & Television has secured a deal to become the exclusive worldwide distributor of IFC original programming.

Ahead of MIPCOM, the third party distributor will shop two IFC titles at the international market, Comedy Bang! Bang!, hosted by Scott Aukerman, and Bunk, a comedy game show.

The deal was hammered by Tricon’s Jon Rutherford, senior vice president distribution and business development and IFC’s Laura Sher, senior vice president of legal and business affairs.

“IFC has been attracting an incredible line up of marquee talent to their brand, and we look forward to partnering with them to bring this new slate of programming to viewers around the world,” Tricon Films president Andrea Gorfolova said in a statement Wednesday.
