"We are really pleased to see so much of our content heading to many of the biggest platforms and broadcasters throughout the CEE region. AMR's extensive programming slate continues to grow with acquisitions from leading producers across multiple non-fiction genres, from history to the arts, high-end travel documentaries, and true crime. Additionally, our award-winning fiction line-up is also proving to be extremely popular with CEE buyers," Abacus Media Rights' Head of Sales Hana Palmer commented.
