Solid Entertainment seals two deals with Discovery Intl.

MUMBAI: Racking up a number of sales in the last few weeks, Solid Entertainment Founder and CEO Richard Propper announced today that they has just concluded sales for two of its highly rated series, Overhaulin' and Rides, to several of Discovery's International outlets.

These two series are currently top-rated hits on The Learning Channel in the US.

Overhaulin' was sold to Discovery International in the UK, Italy, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. Whereas, the Rides deals include sales to Discovery International in France and all French-speaking territories.

Overhaulin' (7x48 minutes), produced for The Learning Channel in the US, is the series where the owner gets tricked and the car gets tricked-out. The action begins with an unsuspecting vehicle owner who finds his or her shabby old ride missing and a week later ends up with a certified show car. Each episode brings in top custom designer Chip Foose, who teams up with his crew of professional builders, and spends the next seven sleepless days and nights making someone's hot rod dream come true.

Rides (11x48 minutes), narrated by Jason Priestly and produced for The Learning Channel in the US, is an 11 part series which defines the automotive genre on television, with its concept to completion coverage of the latest and greatest from the world of automotive design. Last seasons episodes included the exclusive start to finish coverage of Fords new Cobra, inside the newest sport of drifting, and inside the world custom street rods. Rides features interviews with the carmakers, designers, painters, and owners.
