International distributor Zodiak Rights has acquired the Imagination Television-produced series Rachel’s Tour of Beauty (pictured).

The series follows international model Rachel Hunter as she travels the world in search of indigenous beauty secrets from such groups as the Chinese Hainan community to the inhabitants of the Greek island Ikaria. Zodiak Rights now has worldwide finished program and format rights to the series.

Imagination Television – the New Zealand-based production company making the show – is currently in production on a 13 x 30-minute version of Tour of Beauty for TVNZ, set to debut next summer.

“We are thrilled to be Imagination TV’s distribution partners on Tour of Beauty, which is already shaping up to be a glamorous, globe-trotting exploration of what true beauty is, and to have found in Rachel Hunter such a charismatic, witty and knowledgeable guide,” said Andreas Lemos, VP of acquisitions for Zodiak Rights, in a statement.

“The show looks amazing, unearths some of the most bizarre beauty treatments in the world, and has at its heart a hugely important message about inner health and self-acceptance,” he added. “We look forward to launching the series as one of our key properties for 2015.”
