hayu picks up NZ reality series The Circus

NZ series follows a family who live, work, and play together under the big top.

Reality streaming platform hayu has picked up two seasons of NZ series The Circus for Australia, UK and Ireland, Benelux, Canada.

A Stripe Studios production for NBCU NZ (Bravo TV), the 20 x 30 min title follows the 10-strong Weber family who live, work, and play together under the big top.

A hit in New Zealand, the series has recently been recommissioned for a third series.

The deal was sealed through Fred Media.

Roger Vanderspikken, Fred Media’s general manager said: “The Circus has really captured the imagination of viewers in New Zealand, so we are delighted to see it starting to fly internationally. It’s an absorbing and truly entertaining reality series so Hayu, with its focus on the best of reality TV, will provide a perfect home in these territories.

The series provides a VIP backstage pass to a unique way of life, most notably of the Weber sisters Kiarnna and Kaleah – who are strong, smart, beautiful and fight like cats and dogs – and introduces a range of supporting characters including Martine, a Puerto Rican daredevil stunt rider and trapeze artist, and Australian clown Ozzy, who always steals the show. The series captures all the highs, lows, loves and drama of the Webers’ life in the circus – from death-defying performances to parties on multi-million-dollar super-yachts and appearances on primetime talk shows.
