February 29, 2024

Cineflix Rights has teamed up with Spark Media Partners  to become the new global distribution home for long-running hit series Château DIY and spin-off brand Château DIY: Living the Dream.

Château DIY (Seasons 1-7, 209×60’, Spark Media Partners for Channel 4, UK) follows courageous château-owners as they tackle monumental renovation projects and transform worn-yet-wonderful castles across France. From first-time buyers to seasoned homeowners with grand expansion plans, each episode serves up extreme highs, devastating lows, and jaw-dropping reveals. Recent series are narrated by Bridgerton star Adjoa Andoh.

Château DIY: Living the Dream (8×60’, Spark Media Partners for More 4, UK) revisits eight homeowners to celebrate their fairytale journeys as they breathe new life into rundown castles across France. From the very first day of demolition through their ambitious supersize renovations and beyond, the series showcases their everyday lives as they open their homes to paying guests, host large-scale events, and learn that it can take a village to run a castle.

Richard Life, SVP Acquisitions and Co-Productions, Cineflix Rights who brokered the deal said: “Château DIY is one of the most sought-after renovation brands out there, providing high quality and volume to buyers looking for a consistent performer with strong audience recognition for their schedules. We are delighted to be partnering with Spark Media to become the new global distribution home for the show.”

Mark Baker, co-Founder, Spark Media Partners said: “The Cineflix Rights team really impressed us with their ambition for the brand and their experience in building long-running show partnerships with networks around the world. We’re thrilled to be joining forces with them on existing and future Château DIY content.”

Tim Mutimer, CEO, Cineflix Rights added: “We are delighted to be adding such a strong series to our portfolio. Château DIY perfectly fits our strategic goal of offering the international market returning series of proven hits and complements our other long-running brands such as Property Brothers and Mayday: Air Disaster.”
