Star shines with Nine deal

'Block,' 'RPA' 'Getaway' included in rights buy

SYDNEY– Southern Star Sales is broadening its repertoire of reality shows, docu-dramas and comedies via a newly minted deal with Australia’s Nine Network.

Southern Star has nabbed international distribution rights to the web’s light entertainment catalog including the current hit “The Block,” in which four couples move into identical apartments and with equal budgets are given 12 weeks to out -design, out-decorate and out-renovate each other.

The library also spans hospital docu-drama “RPA,” travel guide “Getaway,” real estate series “Location Location,” variety series “Micallef” and laffers “Comedy Inc.” and “Camera Trap.”

Southern Star already handles world sales of Nine’s drama and children’s programming.

It will re-launch the light entertainment catalog, comprising more than 2,000 hours, to international buyers at Mipcom.
