DCD Rights to Rep Mama June: From Not to Hot & More


DCD Rights has picked up international distribution rights for Mama June: From Not to Hot as part of a deal covering nearly 30 hours of reality content commissioned by WE tv in the U.S.

Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars and the reboot of the iconic series Bridezillas are also included in the agreement. DCD Rights will manage worldwide sales, excluding the U.S., for all three series.

Produced by ThinkFactory Media, Mama June: From Not to Hot showcases the return of Mama June, the matriarch from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, as she battles herself, her family and her haters to become the woman she’s always wanted to be. WE tv already commissioned a second season, which DCD Rights will be pre-selling at MIPCOM.

The all-new seventh season of Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars also comes from ThinkFactory Media. DCD Rights already distributes all previous six seasons of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars and two seasons of Marriage Boot Camp: Bridezillas. DCD Rights will also present the latest season of Bridezillas. This follows the recent announcement by WE tv regarding a reboot of the long-running show.

Theresa Patiri, the senior VP of production and business affairs at WE tv, commented, “Whether it’s Mama June’s amazing transformation, our favorite reality stars revealing all the ups and downs of their marriages, or the brides who are pushed to the edge in search of the ‘perfect’ wedding—these new titles deliver unmissable entertainment for a wide audience. The DCD Rights team has already achieved great success with Marriage Boot Camp and Bridezillas, and I’m delighted to partner with them again as they bring these new series to a worldwide audience.”

Nicky Davies Williams, the CEO at DCD Rights, added, “We’re very pleased to secure this exciting new reality content for our international clients as we continue our successful relationship with WE tv. The reality genre consistently proves very popular globally—with long-running series such as Marriage Boot Camp and Bridezillas enabling broadcasters to build strong fan bases with buzzworthy reliable ratings winners.”
