As part of this renewal deal, Zodiak Rights will distribute the second series of Gypsy Weddings and three new spin-offs at MIPCOM next month: My Bigger Fatter Gypsy Wedding (1 x 60-minutes), My Big Fat Gypsy Christmas (1 x 60-minutes, w/t) and Thelma’s Gypsy Girls (4 x 60-minutes, w/t).

Zodiak Rights CEO Matthew Frank said: “Firecracker Films is a distributor’s dream as they provide us with a constant supply of really great shows. Big Fat Gypsy Weddings is just the latest in a long line of international bestsellers we’ve sold for them over the last decade so naturally we’re delighted to be cementing the relationship for a further three years.”

The Big Fat Gypsy Weddings series and sequels are all Firecracker Films productions for Channel 4 in the UK. Series two will premiere on C4 in early 2012.
