MUMBAI: GRB Entertainment, producers and distributors of non-fiction programs, has acquired the worldwide rights, excluding the US, for the reality series The Surreal Life IV. The announcement was made by senior vice-president International Distribution Gavin Reardon.

The Surreal Life IV is currently airing on VH1 in the US.



GRB Entertainment also has the rights to The Surreal Life I, II and III. The company will be offering all four seasons at the upcoming National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) Convention.

NATPE 2005 will take place from 25 January to 27 January at Las Vegas.

Recent sales for the first three seasons include

Latin America/MTV Season II & III


Scandinavia/SBS Season I, II & III

Singapore/Media Corp Season I & II

“We at GRB Entertainment couldn’t be happier with the success of The Surreal Life series. Surreal Life I, II & III are in great demand and we expect season IV to be just as popular, if not more so. The world can’t seem to get enough celebrity contact and this venue delivers that celebrity expose in a unique and personal way,” stated Reardon.

The show has been originally produced for the WB Network by Renegade Entertainment, in association with Brass Ring Productions and Mindless Entertainment.

The Surreal Life brings together a diverse group of some of America's most beloved celebrities. This unlikely group of housemates move in together and share a fun and funky house somewhere in the Hollywood Hills for ten days.
