Cineflix snags buzzy sex-change series

Becoming-Us-tempCineflix has taken international rights to the buzzy upcoming US reality show Becoming Us.

The series is being produced by Ryan Seacrest’s prodco RSP for US cable net ABC Family.

The 10x60mins show debuts next month and will follow a teenager as he learns of his parents’ imminent divorce and his father’s decision to undergo gender reassignment and become a woman, transitioning from Charlie to Carly.

Cineflix will launch the series internationally after Anthony Kimble, Cineflix’s vice president, coproductions and North American Acquisitions, struck a deal with RSP.

The series will get its first market outing at NATPE Europe, in Prague, next month.

Chris Bonney, CEO Rights said: “The show’s main theme has a real zeitgeist feel to it; but many of the other issues explored in Becoming Us – family, relationships and coming-of-age – are universal and we’re convinced audiences worldwide will really connect with them.”
