NBCUniversal International Networks has inked a pan-Asian broadcast deal for seasons one and two of paranormal reality series The R.I.P. Files (pictured) from Washington DC prodco Marin Group Productions.

The program shadows a female-led team of paranormal investigators as they encourage apparitions they encounter in haunted locations to share their stories.

The R.I.P. Files is distributed in the U.S. by New Dominion Pictures, which holds the worldwide distribution rights, and in Asia by Singapore-based producer-distributor Bomanbridge Media, which brokered the pan-Asian deal.

“Bomanbridge is pleased to bring NBCU’s Asian audience the intriguing investigation series, R.I.P. Files exploring spooky, paranormal occurrences, a subject which has enjoyed tremendous interest in the region,” said Sonia Fleck, CEO of Bomanbridge Media, in a statement.

The Virginia-based New Dominion Pictures has produced more than 600 hours of factual, reality, and scripted drama programming, including Discovery Channel’s A Haunting.

Marin Group Productions makes a range of paranormal reality series and specials, as well as other types of reality programming.
