UK distributor Cineflix Rights has closed a number of international sales for TLC series The Little Couple (pictured) ahead of MIPCOM later this month.

The LMNO Productions-made series – which is now heading into its seventh season in the U.S. – follows Bill and Jen Arnold, who are both under four feet in height. The show follows the couple’s everyday challenges, and details how they go about adjusting to a new city, purchasing a new house and raising a family.

Ahead of the four-day market, which kicks off on October 13, Cineflix Rights has sold season five (40 x 30 minutes) to TLC UK; the first three seasons (52 x 30 minutes) to Kanal 5 Sweden and season six (24 x 30 minutes) to TV Norge.

In addition, Discovery Italy picked up the first three seasons as well as season six (76 x 30 minutes); Discovery Asia took seasons five and six (64 x 30 minutes); and AMI Canada bought the first three seasons (52 x 30 minutes).

The Little Couple is a wonderfully warm, funny and poignant look at family life. It’s no wonder it’s performed so well for TLC, as over the seasons viewers have followed Bill and Jen and their growing family, they’ve become like friends,” said Chris Bonney, CEO of Cineflix Rights, in a statement.

“We’re pleased the show’s success in the U.S. continues to be reflected in these latest international sales and look forward to introducing them to more broadcasters at MIPCOM,” he added.
