U.S. cable network Reelz has picked up the celebrity biography series Celebrated from Los Angeles-based sales agent The Exchange.

Produced by Reboot TV, the half-hour weekday show profiles stars such as Russell Crowe, Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry and others using a mix of interview clips, red carpet footage, social media tags and pop-up infographics. Reelz has ordered 104 episodes.

The program marks The Exchange’s first foray into television since creating its TV development division. It is being exec produced by the company’s CEO Brian O’Shea and head of acquisitions Jeff Bowler.

Other titles on Reelz’s 2015 slate include the weekday program TMZ Hollywood Sports, and returning factual titles Autopsy: The Last Hours of…, Celebrity Damage Control and Celebrity Legacies.

Reelz also set an April 11 premiere date for the High Noon Entertainment-produced reality show Polka Kings. Another new reality series from High Noon, Branson Taxi, will debut on June 6. The third season of Hollywood Hillbillies will also begin airing on April 11.
