ZED has sealed two distribution framework agreements, with La Compagnie des Taxi-Brousse and Flair Media, to include 145 hours of documentaries from the Flair Media catalogue and 180 hours of documentaries from the catalogue of La Compagnie des Taxi-Brousse to its portfolio.

According to Manuel Catteau, President of ZED: "Over the years, La Compagnie des Taxi-Brousse has built up a remarkably coherent editorial catalogue, and Flair Media has multiplied its bold productions. We're delighted to be representing two producers whose values and vision we share on the international stage."

These agreements, which follow ZED's acquisition of Point du Jour and its catalogue, bring to 3,500 the number of hours of films distributed by ZED, positioning the company as a key player in distribution and reinforcing its leadership in the export of French documentaries worldwide.

More than just representation, these two deals also include closer collaboration on upcoming productions by Flair Media and La Compagnie des Taxi-Brousse, for which ZED now has the right of first look for their distribution. The aim is for Flair Media and La Compagnie des Taxi-Brousse to strengthen their independence by benefiting from ZED's international expertise, thus enabling the two companies to think strategically about international markets at a very early stage, and seize every opportunity.

For Laurent Mini and Karim Samaï of La Compagnie des Taxi-Brousse: "Entrusting 33 years of work to a single partner is a strategic decision, and ZED has perfectly met our expectations. We're delighted that our catalogue will enhance ZED's offering, and that we can count on the sales know-how and teams that Manuel Catteau has spent years building up."

Flair Media Chairman Guillaume Roy commented: "Flair Media is delighted to have signed this distribution agreement with ZED, which strengthens its international impact."
