Affinity Ent. acquires syndicator Tradewinds

Century Technologies Inc. subsidiary Affinity Entertainment has acquired the assets of syndicator Tradewinds LLC, which is now named Tradewinds Television.

The management of the company has been replaced, including president Mark Raffalowski. However, much of the sales staff remains, including former executive vice president Chris Rovtar, who has been upped to president of domestic distribution.

The company has also expanded the sales force to accompany an expanded slate of projects being offered in syndication this year, according to Peter Newgard, president and CEO of Century Technologies.

The Tradewinds series “Bounty Hunters” will return for a second season, and the company will sell more hour weeklies and a half-hour weekly. Twenty-six episodes of “Looking Beyond,” from producers Bradley and Mark Anderson, will be offered for barter. The show, from the producers of “Sightings,” examines victims of paranormal phenomena.

“E.N.G.,” which is produced by Alliance Communications Corp. and Baton Broadcasting for Canadian TV, will be offered in the U.S. for straight cash. Ninety-six episodes are available, and the hour weekly is set in an urban newsroom.

“Owl TV,” a half-hour weekly, is also being offered for barter. The educational kids show, which airs internationally now, blends live action and animation. Sixty episodes are available. Tradewinds also distributes the off-PBS series “Ghost Writer,” which is currently on the air.
