Decked Out and Racing Around the World Alone are two of the new titles added to the Tricon Films & Television catalog for international distribution.

Tricon has announced it has acquired 13-part half-hour HD series Decked Out as well as Decked Out Challenge which follows host Paul Lafrance as backyards get makeovers with custom built decks. It boasts a “hard-edged style” and is produced by Architect Films. The series will premiere on HGTV Canada in spring 2011.

Also acquired is character-driven reality travel show, Livin’ Loud. The 12 x 30-minute HD series follows two girls and two guys as they cross two countries in a ’72 Dodge Commander RV. Produced by Sugar Rush Entertainment and NAPPIC Cinema, the series recently premiered on MTV Australia and New Zealand.

Exploring the grim topic of non-traditional afterlife services is Corpus, a one-hour HD doc which follows host Connie Diletti as she explores plastination, cryonics, mummification, glassblowing and more. Produced by Corpus Film Company Ltd., Corpus recently premiered on Canada’s TVO and will air on The Knowledge Network and Vision TV.

Lastly, Tricon has added Racing Around the World Alone to its catalog. The one-hour doc tells the story of the Vendee Globe race, where 30 skippers race in a 27,000 mile sailboat journey around the world. The doc is produced by Wind Athletes Canada and premiered last month on CBC’s Documentary Channel.
