Sundance Gets U.K. Reality Skein


Sundance Channel announced Thursday that it has acquired the U.S. pay TV rights to hit British reality series Ladette to Lady.

The network said the series is “a hilarious look at the transformation of ten “ladettes” -- aggressive, working-class party girls -- into stylish, well-mannered ladies.”

Sundance will debut the five one-hour episodes of Ladette to Lady during the spring.

Ladette to Lady presents a provocative and funny glimpse into the phenomenon of ‘ladettes’ and questions what it means to be a lady,” Sundance executive vice president of programming and marketing Laura Michalchyshyn said in a prepared statement.

“Watching these young women struggle with the conventions of etiquette and grace is hilarious and revealing, and we are thrilled to add Ladette to Lady to our expanding repertoire of excellent international acquisitions,” she added.
