GRB Studios has acquired three dramatic reality shows from OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, securing the global rights (excluding the U.S.) to the programs.
Among the series GRB picked up is To Have and to Hold: Charlotte, which tackles the real challenges couples face—from troubled finances to potential separations—following five affluent couples from North Carolina. There’s also the Atlanta-set Ready to Love, a series that features the dating interactions of sexy, successful men and women in their 30s and 40s looking for an authentic relationship, highlighting the men’s observations and experiences.
Rounding out the recent OWN acquisitions is Love and Marriage, which centers around the lives of the three high-powered couples behind the real estate venture The Comeback Group as they work to revitalize the city of Huntsville, Alabama. Longtime friends and avid socialites, each are facing the realities of dealing with love and marriage while trying to make a success out of this huge undertaking.
Sarah Coursey, GRB Studios’ senior VP of international, said: “GRB is known for its diversity, in both programming content and non-scripted genres. We are thrilled to acquire three fantastic, gripping reality shows from OWN and will be taking the programs around the globe. These shows provide an intimate look at modern life and we are confident that audiences around the world will relate to their challenges and successes.”
