Cineflix Rights takes The Little Couple worldwide

Cineflix Rights, one of the UK’s leading independent television distributors, has closed multiple deals for its highly rated US TLC series, The Little Couple, as it launches new seasons of the show at MIPCOM 2014.

The Little Couple follows Bill Klein and Jen Arnold who are both under four feet tall. They face not only the struggles of being two little people in an average-sized world, but also the everyday challenges of moving to a new city, buying a new home, and raising a family.

Now going into its seventh season with TLC, The Little Couple, which is produced by LMNO Productions, is the highest ever rated show on the network and TLC’s highest rated show in 2014 to date. It has now sold to more than 70 countries worldwide.

Cineflix Rights has recently sold season 5 (40x30’) to TLC UK, seasons 1, 2 and 3 (52x30’) to Kanal 5 Sweden and season 6 (24x30’) to TV Norge; seasons 1, 2, 3 and 6 (76x30’) to Discovery Italy; seasons 5 and 6 (64x30’) to Discovery Asia; seasons 1, 2 and 3 (52x30’) to AMI Canada and is closing further deals as it heads to MIPCOM 2014.

Chris Bonney, CEO Rights, Cineflix Media said: “The Little Couple is a wonderfully warm, funny and poignant look at family life. It’s no wonder it’s performed so well for TLC, as over the seasons viewers have followed Bill and Jen and their growing family, they’ve become like friends. We’re pleased the show’s success in the US continues to be reflected in these latest international sales and look forward to introducing them to more broadcasters at MIPCOM.”
