Queer Eye continues to take over the world

Queer Eye continues to take over the world

British TV viewers will be getting a triple scoop of Bravo's hit makeover show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy with a deal licensing Channel Four to air all episodes of the show beginning in June. This comes on top of an existing deal with Flextech-owned LivingTV for a cable outing in the United Kingdom for the U.S. episodes as well as a local British version of the reality series to begin airing in May. The Channel Four deal was confirmed Monday by an NBC Enterprises spokesperson. NBCE is distributing the reality series and the format worldwide. In addition to the Channel Four deal, NBCE also confirmed a sale of Queer Eye to South African cable and satellite outlet MNET that involves a pan-African broadcast arrangement for the U.S. episodes. A new deal with Hong Kong's TVB for all episodes also was confirmed Monday. Queer Eye has now been cleared in almost 50 territories worldwide, said Leslie Jones, vice president of international sales and format production at NBCE. Although Jones declined comment on the latest U.K. deal, it is known that Channel Four will begin airing the U.S. episodes in June on Fridays while LivingTV will broadcast the local U.K. version of the show on Thursdays. At some point, both outlets will be airing the U.S. episodes, but they will not overlap. NBCE is also understood to be negotiating deals in France and Spain for local versions there of the Queer Eye format. (Reuters/The Hollywood Reporter)
