Alfred Haber Distribution to distribute 'Vanity Insanity' worldwide

MUMBAI: Alfred Haber Distribution, Inc. (AHDI) has announced that it has been selected as the exclusive worldwide distributor (excluding Canada) of Insight Film Studios' docu-reality series Vanity Insanity. This 26 half-hour series tells the tale of real individuals attempting to transform their lives by altering their appearances.

Hosted by R & B artist Deborah Cox and shot in HDTV, each episode features accounts of body modification, cosmetic surgery and image exaggeration, thus exposing the growing obsession with looking good at all costs.

According to an official release, every week a different aspect of the industry is examined, providing a graphic, but accurate portrayal of the worldwide addiction to the "beauty revolution."

Filmed throughout North America, Mexico and Brazil, the series highlights true stories that include, Tattoo You, an look at full body and face tattoos, Bald R Us, the painstaking - and expensive - search for a full head of hair, The Singing Doctor, about a surgeon who provides clients with the opportunity to sound like they did in their prime and Julie Rubinzer, the story of a young woman who went in for a breast augmentation upgrade from which she never woke up; another cautionary tale that reinforces the fact that there is no such thing as "routine surgery," adds the release.

The founder of Alfred Haber Distribution, Inc., Alfred Haber said, "Three months ago Vanity Insanity debuted on Canada's Global Television Network to remarkable ratings going up against the ubiquitous American Idol. We immediately sought out the producers, developed our marketing strategy, and signed the deal."

"With over 12 million procedures performed last year in North America alone, I am confident that Vanity Insanity will be an incredibly strong series both domestically and internationally," he adds.
