The BBC has rights to all four seasons, two of which are yet to be produced by Seven Productions and distributed by Endemol Worldwide Distribution.
Meanwhile RLJ Entertainment has secured the North American rights for the first two series on streaming service Acorn, plus DVD rights, and syndication on public television stations. Acorn TV has previously screened ANZAC Girls, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and Jack Irish.
Brad Lyons, Seven’s Director of Production said “A Place to Call Home is a world class period drama series created by a first class cast and creative team, and we are delighted that UK and US audiences will be given a chance to enjoy it. We are building a significant presence in the production of content not only for the Australian market but with an increasing focus on international markets.
“We are delighted to have secured this agreement for A Place to Call Home on the BBC.”
The series won a rare reprieve after Foxtel responded to a fan campaign to rescue the show from oblivion.
