Frantic Films, meanwhile, has been behind such hit series as CBC’s Jonny Harris-fronted Still Standing, which is currently filming its sophomore season; CNBC’s ‘Til Debt Do Us Part and Princess; FYI’s The Opener; TruTV’s Masterminds; and Cooking Channel’s Pitchin’ In.

“Having produced programming for a worldwide audience, in genres as varied as factual, docu-reality and comedy, this is a great opportunity for Frantic Films to mine new and creative arenas,” said Frantic Films CEO Jamie Brown (pictured, right) in a statement.

“Together, we have an opportunity to elevate lifestyle programming as we continue to explore fascinating people, cultures and experiences,” added Loud TV president Nick Rigg (left).
