Cineflix Rights, the UK’s largest independent TV content distributor has extended its partnership with top US producer LMNO Entertainment Group LLC with a new three-year deal signed at MIPCOM. The agreement sees Cineflix Rights taking worldwide exclusive rights to distribute over 1000 episodes of LMNO's library, as well as new programming.
LA-based LMNO Entertainment is one of the foremost providers of reality, documentary, and entertainment programming for network, cable, and syndicated television. The company has produced numerous award-winning series for broadcasters in the US including CBS, FOX, NBC, Discovery, TLC, Animal Planet, Lifetime, LMN, Travel Channel, A&E, and History.
The deal will see Cineflix Rights launch brand new LMNO content at MIPCOM including Killer Confessions (4x60’), which is due to premiere on Investigation Discovery US on 13 October. The series features actual police interrogation videos and dramatic reconstructions to reveal how officers piece together the evidence around a chilling crime before confronting the alleged perpetrator in the interview room to extract a confession. Cineflix Rights will also bring season 2 of Murder Book (13x60’) to MIPCOM, which follows police officers trying to solve cold cases. The premiere of Murder Book: Promise Not to Tell earlier this year in the US broke Investigation Discovery’s record for its best primetime telecast of all time.
LMNO’s shows have been some of the best performers in the Cineflix Rights catalogue. They include The Little Couple, now in its 8th season and one of the highest rated shows on TLC, which has sold to more than 70 countries worldwide; and Unusual Suspects, in its 8th season on Investigation Discovery US, which has been sold to countries and regions including Australia, the UK, France, Sweden, and Latin America.
Chris Bonney, CEO Rights, Cineflix Media said: “We are thrilled to be extending our partnership with LMNO. Their shows are the type of high performing, internationally focused returning series our buyers look for and have consistently been some of our major catalogue hits.”
Eric Schotz, CEO of LMNO Entertainment Group said: “We are really pleased to be renewing our relationship with Cineflix Rights. They have been instrumental in raising LMNO’s profile globally. We believe that this next term will prove to be even more successful.”
