UK distributor All3Media International has secured a slate of global sales for Maverick TV’s family-focused reality series Chrisley Knows Best (pictured).

The show – which currently airs on USA Network – follows U.S. millionaire real estate developer Todd Chrisley and his family, who are based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Chrisley has been sold to UK broadcaster ITV, which has acquired the first and second seasons of the show for a primetime slot on the lifestyle channel ITVBe, and will debut in the first quarter of this year.

Meanwhile, seasons one and two of the series have also been sold to Australia’s Foxtel, Denmark’s Viasat, as well as VTM for Flemish Belgium and Zonemedia in a pan-territory deal that covers Africa, the Middle East, and Central and Eastern Europe.

Further deals have also been secured with Kanal 5 (Sweden), NBCUniversal (Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States) and RTL CBS Asia (pan Asia), in addition to Canada’s W Network and Corus Entertainment.

“We’re delighted to see Chrisley Knows Best making its UK debut on ITVBe, and to such a range of other territories from Canada to Russia and Asia,” said Liza Thompson, senior VP of sales at All3Media International, in a statement.

“ITVBe, which has seen great success with All3Media and Lime Pictures’ other reality hit The Only Way Is Essex, is the perfect fit for this entertaining and hilarious new series and we’re looking forward to the Chrisley clan winning a legion of new fans in the UK in 2015,” the exec added.
