Rive Gauche TV to introduce specials at 2006 Asian TV forum

MUMBAI: Rive Gauche TV senior VP of sales Dorothy Crompton has announced that they will introduce their slate of series and special programming to Asian broadcasters at the 2006 Asia Television Forum in Singapore.

Rive Gauche Television is dedicated to the production, co-production, acquisition and worldwide distribution of television programming.

Entertainment and Reality series:

The Dog Whisperer (20 x 60‘) is hosted by canine psychologist Cesar Millan, who has appeared on Oprah and the Late Show with David Letterman. Millan trains the dog owners to become the pack leader to resolve their pet‘s behavioural issues.

The series follows Cesar as he visits client‘s homes and works with the dogs and their distraught owners to solve even the thorniest behavior problems. Produced by MPH Entertainment, The Dog Whisperer is already sold in 14 territories including UBC (Thailand), BSkyB (UK), TVNZ (New Zealand), Channel Nine (Australia), TV2 (Denmark) and SBS6 (Netherlands), asserts an official release.

Beyond The Badge (10 x 60‘) is all about thrilling video footages of catastrophic crashes, shootouts and attacks on officers which are captured from police car dashboard-mounted cameras, helicopters and news cameras. The series is a co-production between Matchlight Entertainment and Rive Gauche Television.

Wild Weddings 2 (13 x 60‘) gives a sneak-peek into some hilarious and bizarre events selected from footage of countless weddings that happen every day around the world. For example a bride goes crazy at her own ceremony, attacks a guest and is whisked away in handcuffs by the cops instead of her groom; a groom gets too close to a candle and ignites his tuxedo. The series is produced by Steve Rotfeld Productions and is distributed by Rive Gauche Television.

Documentary Specials:

Dino Lab (1 x 60‘) combines the latest scientific technology with a ratings-proven cast of living, breathing digital dinosaurs created by the same electronic animators who first brought the creatures to life in Dinosaur Planet for Discovery Channel.

A wide variety of prehistoric creatures are dropped into a modern, controlled laboratory setting where lab technicians attempt to test the creatures‘ abilities with a number of laboratory experiments. Outside the lab, the technicians put the digital dinosaurs to "real-life" tests as they demonstrate their colossal size and strength.

Part Olympic trials facility, part obstacle course, the lab is designed to illustrate paleontologists‘ latest insights about these creatures in a dramatic and highly entertaining way. Dino Lab is co-produced with Discovery USA, Discovery Canada, NHK Japan and Sky UK.

Anatomy of a Giant (1 x 60‘) is a special that introduces viewers to 23-year old Sun Ming Ming, a young man from Northern China who hopes to parlay his tremendous size into a professional basketball career with the NBA. Towering over every other NBA player at 7‘-9" and 320 pounds, he is the second tallest man in the world, adds the release.
