MUMBAI: KTK and Buena Vista International Television (BVITV) have announced major multi-year agreements to bring a range of features, network series, kids series and TV movies to its channels KTK and Euroasia across Kazakhstan.

This was announced by BVITV EMEA senior vice president sales and portfolio development Philippe Maigret and KTK general producer Igor Syrtsov.

The agreements were prepared and made with participation of Intra Communications,Inc. (ICI) being an authorized agent of KTK.

KTK and Euroasia have licensed the second season of the award-winning US network series Desperate Housewives, following the success of the first season on the channel.

With these agreements, KTK has picked up a number of first run features from BVITV's portfolio including Signs and Gone in 60 Seconds. Viewers will also be able to enjoy the international smash hits 10 Things I Hate About You, both Father of the Bride films and madcap comedy Spy Hard. The broadcaster has picked up first runs of hit features including Coyote Ugly, High Fidelity, Summer of Sam, and Good Morning Vietnam.

For KTK's younger viewers, the channel has also picked up a selection of Disney animated content for its successful weekly Disney branded block, Disney Club.

In a separate agreement introduced by BVITV, KTK has also licensed action-packed Jetix Europe programming for the launch of its first Jetix branded block. Younger viewers will be able to enjoy a selection of popular animated series including Gadget and the Gadgetinis, Sonic X and The Secret Files of the Spydogs.

Maigret said, "These agreements are our biggest to date in Kazakhstan, and are part of significant growth overall in our business across Central and Eastern Europe. We are pleased to be working closely with KTK in expanding our breath of content on air, from network series to kids programming blocks."

Syrtsov said, "We are excited to be licensing this broad range of hit series, movies, and kids entertainment, which we are sure will be very successful for our channels."
