Tricon Launches ‘Sanctuary’ In Off-Net Syndication
Tricon Films & Television and PPI Releasing announced today that Sanctuary, the Syfy one-hour procedural drama, would be launched in weekly barter syndication in 2013-14.
Sanctuary stars Amanda Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus, the daring leader of the Sanctuary team of investigators who track down, study and protect strange creatures that secretly populate our world. The series began as an Internet-only offering that drew nearly 4 million viewers and then scored one of the highest-rated series launches in Syfy network history.
“Sanctuary has been a tremendous success, both domestically and worldwide, currently airing in over 150 countries,” said Jon Rutherford, SVP distribution and business development, Tricon Films & Television. “The series was designed for success in syndication, and we expect to build on its previous accomplishments.”
