Alex Avon, VP Global Distribution at Amuz Distribution, announced a format license agreement for The Boys with Tucker Tooley Entertainment for the US territories. The popular comedy series The Boys, a sports-themed reality show based on friendship is Canada’s Largest TV and Film Franchise.
The Boys is a scripted factual comedy series about friendship, life, love, and sports. Centering around a group of friends from different walks off life – from surgeons to police officers – they face life’s challenges together on and off the sports’ field. For eleven guys, Monday is their favorite day of the week when these part-time gladiators pull on, with pride and some difficulty, a jersey emblazoned with their team crest THE BOYS. These old timers continue to play “the world’s greatest game” and meet at Stan’s Bar, to down a pitcher of brew. They hang out, argue, complain, throw fists, and eventually hug and make up. It is a prime-time comedy series and was one of the biggest French-Canadian TV franchises in Canada. During its run, it had a 38% market share on Radio-Canada TV with 73 TV episodes and 5 movies under its belt.
Avon stated: “Amuz Distribution is thrilled to partner with Tucker Tooley Entertainment for our fun, heart-felt comedy series The Boys, beloved by major audiences in Quebec. This sports-themed friendship-based show is perfect for localization. We look forward to seeing the shows on air in the U.S.”
Christian Parent, VP Development & Production at Tucker Tooley Entertainment, added: “We are beyond excited to team up with Amuz Distribution to adapt the highly acclaimed series from Quebec, The Boys for the U.S. audience. Give their proven track record and our passion for storytelling, we’re confident this series will captivate American fans, offering a truly unique and immersive experience.”
