Electus takes rights to Spike series

Will distribute 'Flip Men,' 'Digger,' 'Cowboy' overseas

Electus has acquired international distrib rights for three Spike TV series in time for industry confab NATPE: “Flip Men,” “American Digger” and “Car Lot Cowboy,” all unscripted skeins airing on the guy-centric cabler.

Electus also produces freshman series “Cowboy.”

“Flip Men” has been airing on the net since October of last year; “Digger” and “Cowboy” are set for March and April, respectively.

The international offerings rep exactly the kinds of pitches that NATPE’s move to Miami is tailored to facilitate. With several American cablers basing their international offices in Miami, cablers have been coming to the conference since last year in search of deals that expand into territories in South America, Central America and Mexico.
