Four new international broadcasters have signed up Decode Entertainment's new live action comedy series for tweens, The Latest Buzz.

Hot on the heels of a second season commission from The Family Channel in Canada, Boomerang UK, Disney Channel France, Disney Channel Italy and ABC Australia have snapped up all 39x22-minute episodes.

"We have established a strong track record in live action and it underscores the appeal of The Latest Buzz that we have so quickly followed the second seasomn commission with these sales to major broadcasters," offered Dominique Bazay, VP of distribution at Decode.

Decode is also launching Turner Broadcasting's live action series My Spy Family at Mipcom, which airs alongside The Latest Buzz on Boomerang in the UK as part of the channel's recently introduced live action block.
