FilmRise, the New York-based film and television studio and streaming network, has acquired digital distribution rights to the reality series “Cheaters” from Goldstein Pictures Corporation. The deal gives FilmRise digital rights worldwide to the entire series.
The package contains more than 1,000 episodes (692 30-minute episodes and 346 60-minute episodes) in 21 seasons of the reality series where people who think their significant other is cheating on them hire the “Cheaters Detective Agency” hidden camera crew to investigate their suspicions. The series premiered in 2,000 and has been running for more than 20 years.
“There is no better drama than reality TV and no better guilty pleasure than the binge-worthy series ‘Cheaters,'” said Max Einhorn, SVP of acquisitions and co-productions. “As traditional television viewing continues to migrate to streaming, so should this long-running fan favorite.”
In the United States, “Cheaters” is currently available to watch on VH1 and Pluto TV, while FilmRise currently exhibits the series on the FilmRise app and on The Roku Channel and Amazon’s FreeVee (formerly IMDb TV), with more digital platforms to follow in summer 2023.
“Max Einhorn is indeed ‘Cheaters” unicorn for sure. We’d been talking about this for years, but I was too busy working to slow down long enough to listen and download the opportunity,” Bobby Goldstein, executive producer and creator of the series, said in a statement. “My distributor Jeff Goldman from Octopean asked me what was wrong with me and hit me over the head with his laptop. Now here we are, and I’m loving it!”
