Participant Media-owned net Pivot has acquired the television rights to two Jamie Oliver-hosted (pictured) culinary programs from FremantleMedia International.

Jamie’s Super Food - a six part series airing November 15 at 11 a.m. EST/PST – is set to follow Oliver as he journeys to some of the healthiest places on Earth, including Costa Rica, Japan and Greece to discover the role that food plays for nations with high centenarian populations.

The broadcaster will also premiere the investigative documentary Jamie’s Sugar Rush on November 18 at 9 p.m. EST/PST. The Oliver-fronted film will challenge viewers to think before they eat by exposing sugar’s contribution to such global health issues as obesity and Type-2 diabetes while revealing how much sugar is in healthy-looking foods.

The acquisitions are part of Participant Media’s mission “to provide content that inspires change.” The two premieres are aimed at directing viewers to support the advocacy and social impact efforts of nutrition-focused non-government organizations.
