Cineflix Rights acquires Ryan Seacrest Productions’ Becoming Us

May 28, 2015

Cineflix Rights, one of the UK’s leading independent television distributors, has reached an agreement with Ryan Seacrest Productions to acquire international rights to the new groundbreaking docu-series, Becoming Us.

The 10x60’ factual series, which will premiere on ABC Family in the US on June 8th at 9 p.m., centers on a teenager named Ben who learns his parents are not only getting a divorce, but also his dad is becoming a woman. The series will intimately follow Ben, his family and his friends as they support one another through this unexpected journey and watch Charlie slowly become Carly, as she experiences the many stages of her transition from male to female. The show is a generational story of a loving family and circle of friends, supporting one another through this unfamiliar and unexpected situation.

Chris Bonney, CEO Rights, Cineflix Media said: “We are really pleased to be partnering with Ryan Seacrest Productions on such a fantastic series. The show’s main theme has a real zeitgeist feel to it; but many of the other issues explored in Becoming Us – family, relationships and coming-of-age – are universal and we’re convinced audiences worldwide will really connect with them.”

The deal to acquire Becoming US was brokered by Anthony Kimble, VP Co-Productions and North American Acquisitions for Cineflix Rights.
