Electus International has sold four unscripted titles to Discovery Networks Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEEMEA).

The Los Angeles-based multimedia studio’s distribution arm secured deals to air American Digger, Fashion Star, Flip Men and Mob Wives: Chicago on Discovery Channel and TLC in 105 countries beginning in January.

American Digger is produced by Gurney Productions for Spike in the U.S., while reality competition series Fashion Star, which airs on NBC in the U.S., is produced by Electus, Magical Elves, 5×5 Media and EJD Productions. Flip Men is produced by 25/7 Productions for Spike, and Mob Wives: Chicago is produced by JustJenn Productions and executive produced by Electus and The Weinstein Company for VH1 in the U.S.

“Expanding our strong relationship with Discovery into the Eastern European and Middle East/African territories has been a standing priority for Electus International,” said Electus’ director of sales Diego Piasek said in a statement. “American Digger, Fashion Star, Flip Men and Mob Wives have been global successes for us this year, and we’re thrilled for four additional titles to find a home with Discovery.”
