London-based international distributor DRG has acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to seasons one and two of October Films’ entertainment clip show Rude(ish) Tube (pictured).
Each episode of the 60 x 30-minute daytime clip series, which was originally produced for UK digital net E4, mixes original animation with highlights of viral videos that examine everything from technology, romance, exercise and outer space.
DRG’s portfolio of recent factual titles includes The White Widow (Hardcash Productions), Killer Instinct (ITN Productions), Kids In Camps (True Vision) and Banaz: An Honour Killing (ITV).
“We are always on the lookout for programs which will have a global appeal to add to our varied catalogue of programming,” said Katie Cundall, VP of factual acquisitions at DRG, in a statement. “Rude(ish) Tube is the kind of show that transcends all age groups and nationalities, and is exactly the type of content that we can see working well in different territories around the world.”
