UK distributor DCD Rights has acquired the international rights to reality show Mama June: From Not to Hot as part of a wider agreement covering 30 hours of reality content commissioned by US cablenet WeTV.
Mama June: From Hot to Not (8×60’ and 1×30’) is produced by ThinkFactory Media and follows the life of Mama June (June Shannon), who previously appeared in TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, following a year in which she lost 100lbs.
DCD has also picked up rights to the latest season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars (11×60’), also from ThinkFactory, and the reboot of reality show Bridezillas. The former puts couples from reality shows such as 19 Kids & Counting and Mob Wives into a mansion to save their marriage. DCD Rights already distributes the previous six seasons of the show.
The revamp of Bridezillas, originally produced by UK prodco September Films, will be showcased by DCD Rights this autumn, ahead of its return to WeTV in 2018. The wedding-based reality series, which produced spin-off Marriage Boot Camp, follows the lives of engaged women as they prepare for their nuptials.
DCD Rights recently secured sales of its factual series to numerous international networks, and also announced the addition of legal dramas Striking Out and Romper Stomper to its Mipcom scripted slate.
