Connecticut-based distributor CABLEready has licensed three series from its catalog to assorted U.S. cable nets.

Lifetime secured the television rights to 100 episodes of Medical Detectives, a Medstar series which aired on TLC. The half-hour show, a sibling series to Forensic Files,  follows coroners, medical examiners, physicians, law enforcement officials, journalists and legal experts as they assemble evidence to understand a crime.

Cooking Channel has licensed the first two seasons of A Cook’s Tour, which sees celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain travel around the world looking for the ultimate dining experience. The 35 episodes were produced by The New York Times Company.

As previously announced, Velocity has secured the rights to Buck Productions’ Saw Dogs, which focuses on a team of chainsaw sculptors.

“As we approach our 20th anniversary as a company, we continue to expand our reach as a provider of high quality content that we have developed for or licensed to U.S. cable networks that attracts both major advertisers and a loyal viewing audience,” said Gary Lico, president and CEO, CABLEready.
