Lenneke de Jong, Beyond Rights’ SVP sales for Benelux comments: “The countries in the Benelux region may be relatively small, but they maintain a big appetite for the Beyond Rights’ content, especially for many of our long-running, returnable series such as Love It Or List it, Abandoned Engineering and Highway Thru Hell. As a result, we have built up excellent relationships with so many local broadcasters over time and are delighted that our series have become cornerstones of many leading channel brands in the region”.
