Indie distributor CABLEready has acquired¬†international distribution rights for New York-based Leftfield Pictures’ reality series Oddities and its spin-off Oddities San Francisco.

Both Oddities (73 x 30 minutes) and Oddities San Francisco (16 x 30 minutes), which air on Discovery Communications-owned cable network Science in the United States, explore the world of strange scientific artifacts through the proprietors and patrons of collectable oddities boutiques in New York and San Francisco, respectively.

“Shows produced by Leftfield Pictures have garnered significant primetime ratings for major broadcasters around the world,” CABLEready president and CEO Gary Lico (pictured, right) said in a statement. “We look to catch lightning in a bottle with Oddities and Oddities San Francisco during MIPCOM with savvy programmers.”

The deal between independent distributor CABLEready and Leftfield executive producer Brent Montgomery (pictured, left) was brokered by Peleton Entertainment during MIPCOM. CABLEready will begin offering both series for sale this week.
