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.”
