London-based distributor DCD Rights has acquired the worldwide rights to the documentary series Liberty of London (pictured)with pre-sales already signed in Australia and Norway.

Foxtel in Australia and NRK in Norway have pre-bought the 3 x 60-minute series, produced by Rize USA. Liberty of London was previously known as Making Liberty and was commissioned by UK pubcaster Channel 4.

The program goes behind the scenes at one of London’s oldest department stores, Liberty, ahead of the Christmas shopping season, and promises unprecedented access to the store, staff and customers.

“We are thrilled to be distributing a series that holds such great sales potential off the back of the huge international success of similar shows including Inside Claridge’s,” said Nicky Davies Williams, CEO of DCD Rights. “Broadcasters around the world have a real appetite for behind-the-scenes series of this type filled with wonderful characters and extraordinary every day stories.”
