GRB Entertainment announced a new partnership with US broadcaster TV One with a slate of 11 series (nearly 200 hours of content) to be launched at MIPCOM 2017.
Among the scripted series are BORN AGAIN VIRGIN (22×30), a hilarious sitcom about the tumultuous world of dating; and HERE WE GO AGAIN (8×30), a sitcom centered around Maddy, who is ready to “do her” – just to find out she’s pregnant.
TV One’s true crime slate includes #MURDER (8×60), a terrifying look at crimes that began via social media; FOR MY MAN (46×30), which tells the shocking stories of women who have committed crimes in the name of love; and FIND OUR MISSING (20×60), tracking the stories of people who have vanished without a trace.
The package also includes reality series RICKEY SMILEY FOR REAL (43×60), following radio host Rickey’s hectic life as he juggles his professional career with his home life; and THE NEXT 15 (8×60) which centers on six former reality stars as they try to create their next 15 minutes of fame.
“GRB is thrilled to partner with TV One to bring these eleven incredible shows to the international market for the first time,” said Michael Lolato, SVP, International Distribution, GRB Entertainment. “From top-rated scripted comedy to cutting-edge crime formats, TV One proves that they are gifted storytellers and leaders in production, and we look forward to introducing this package of programming to our global broadcast partners.”
“The team at TV One is very proud of our new slate and excited that our partners, GRB, will be launching these titles at MIPCOM and Discop Africa,” commented Michelle Rice, TV One Interim General Manager. “We’re confident that these programs will resonate with viewers around the world and be just as successful as they are in the US.”
