Scripps Networks UK/EMEA acquires Travels with the Bondi Vet from Fred Media

MUMBAI: Chris Brown, one of TV’s best-known vets, is set to take viewers on a whole new adventure. The popular Aussie vet will be seen on Travel Channel, which has picked up his new series “Travels with the Bondi Vet” for Europe, Middle East and Africa.


Chris originally appeared on the iconic “Bondi Vet” series in 2009. The show has been a long-running hit for Network TEN in Australia and for Animal Planet, Europe, where it is aired six nights a week. The show is now seen in 170 countries around the world including CBS in the United States.


“Travels with the Bondi Vet” combines Dr. Chris’ passion for animals and travel. He shares hot springs with snow monkeys in Japan, goes to the edge of a volcano in Vanuatu, swims with whale sharks and survives a medieval battle.


Fred Media’s newly appointed General Manager, Michael Aldrich says, “We are thrilled with the recent partnership with Travel Channel and excited about the future of this new series. “Bondi Vet” has been a great success for us internationally and we are confident that the host, Dr. Chris Brown will cross over into the travel-lifestyle space.”


“We see this new partnership as an endorsement of this decision and are incredibly grateful for the support of such a respected broadcaster.” Scripps Networks UK/EMEA VP, Broadcasting, Steve Fright says, “Travels with the Bondi Vet” was a great match for Travel Channel culturally and shows potential as a renewable and popular series. It has been great to work with Fred and we think their new series will be a great addition to our schedule.”


The program will be broadcast on multiple networks including BskyB, TV4 Sweden, TVB Hong Kong and A+E Networks Asia
