Gary Lico has simplified the name of his distribution operation to GaryLico.tv, the exclusive global distributor of the long-running unscripted series Forensic Files.

Formerly Lilolme.tv, GaryLico.tv was established in 2013 by Lico (pictured, right) to continue the distribution of the long-running series. Started by Lico, co-creator of Forensic Files, it focuses specifically on that series, which was recently sent to Finland on FoxTV, and Poland’s 13th Street.

The smaller production company was designed to allow for an easier working situation for 40-year veteran Lico.

“Laser-focusing on Forensic Files — plus developing a new crime series — is plenty for me at this stage in the game. Building another mid-sized company is not where my head — nor much of the industry — is at,” says Lico in a statement.

Lilolme.tv was created to be the distributor for Forensic Files following the shut down of Lico’s CABLEready in 2013.

Forensic Files ran for 399 episodes across 14 seasons, airing on TLC (1996–2000), Court TV (2000–2007), and truTV (2008–2011). Using reenactments and voice overs, each 30-minute episode details a crime that is solved through the use of forensic evidence. The series is considered by some as an inspiration for forensic science-themed TV crime dramas such as CSI.
