US cablenet We TV has secured the ninth season of DCD Media reality format Bridezillas, as the UK company shifts its focus stateside.
The commission for a new 23x60’ season came as DCD revealed it had secured more than US$6m in US business in 2011 and 2012. Factual subsidiary September Films will produce out of its Hollywood office.
The US has become increasingly important to DCD of late after it last year launched Rize, a UK-US joint venture prodco helmed by former September creative chief Sheldon Lazarus.
DCD CEO David Green said this latest commission confirmed the group’s non-fiction aspirations “at a time when DCD is exclusively refocusing its production output onto this leading television genre on both sides of the Atlantic.”
