Indie distributor Lineup Industries has penned a raft of deals with factual producers ahead of the Amsterdam-based group’s first MIPCOM next month.

Lineup was formed earlier this month by former Sony Pictures Television execs Ed Louwerse and Julian Curtis, with an intended focus on formats and derived IP.

The distributor has secured deals with prodcos including Skyhigh TV, Vorst Media and Tin Can, with further content deals in place with Tuvalu Media, No Pictures Please, Noble Savage, CCCP and TV Mark.

Following the deals, Lineup’s MIPCOM-bound slate now includes Vorst Media’s Face Your Addiction; Tuvalu Media’s scripted reality show The First Years: School, Life, Everything; Noble Savage gameshow Dividing Line; and Skyhigh TV’s historical quiz show format 100 Years of Wisdom and social justice format The Bully Project (pictured).

“We founded Lineup Industries with a firm commitment to offering producers an experienced distribution partner with strong global relationships at all levels and on all platforms,” said Ed Louwerse, co-founder of Lineup Industries, in a statement.

“These deals are testament to our approach and we are very happy to be working with some of the most creative format and factual producers in the business as we prepare for the company’s first MIPCOM,” he added.
