Rive Gauche Television has licensed Operation Repo and Dog Whisperer to Foxtel and Seven Network in Australia, as part of licensing deals that total more than 100 hours of programming.

The California-based distribution company has sold its two long-running series, Operation Repo, which looks at car repossession in California’s San Fernando Valley; and Dog Whisperer, which sees specialist Cesar Millan correcting pet owners’ techniques.

In addition, My Strange Addiction has sold to more than 100 countries as the distribution company heads to MIPCOM. Sales of the reality series, which follows people who can’t stop unusual addictive behavior, include Spain’s La Sexta picking up the show, as well as Sweden’s TV4, TV2 in Norway, TV5 in Finland and Viasat in Denmark.

Australia’s Nine Network, Yes DBS in Israel, Thailaind’s Fox Crime/True Corp. and Discovery in Central & Eastern Europe have also picked up the series, which airs on TLC in the U.S.

Lastly, Rive Gauche Television has teamed up with Splash News to produce original television programming for the international marketplace. Their first dual project is Hollywood’s Hot List, a countdown series on the best and worst of Hollywood.

Gary Morgan, CEO of Splash Newsm said of the collaboration: “Splash News has been providing the video and other forms of content for most of today’s leading celebrity magazines and television shows.  We are excited about partnering with an innovative production and distribution company like Rive Gauche to produce our own televisions series for the global marketplace.”
