Electus International, the global distribution arm of Ben Silverman’s multimedia studio Electus, has secured the global distribution rights for three series from U.S. cable net Spike TV: Flip Men, Car Lot Cowboy and American Digger.

Flip Men, exec produced by Dave Broome and 25/7 Productions, follows a duo of house flippers as they investigate properties and prepare them for market. American Digger, produced by Gurney Productions, will be airing on Spike in March of this year and follows former wrestling pro turned relic hunter Ric Savage.

Car Lot Cowboy, meanwhile, focuses on auto dealership legend Tom Stuker and is created and developed by Vem Miller in association with Vem’s Sweatshop Media, and executive produced by Electus’ Ben Silverman and 5 x 5 Media. It is slated to debut on Spike in April of this year.

“With amazing characters and internationally relatable environments, we know that these series will resonate with a global audience,” said John Pollak, president of Electus International.
