Emmy-nominated daytime series will launch at MIPTV
Charleston, SC (April 2, 2019): Litton Entertainment, a leading independent producer, has appointed TV distributor Red Arrow Studios International to distribute its acclaimed factual entertainment series Welcome Home in all international territories outside of the United States. The series will launch at MIPTV in Cannes.
Welcome Home, recently nominated for a 2019 Daytime Emmy, tells the inspirational stories of families as they emerge from homelessness and move into a new living space to call their own. Fronted by Humble Design Co-CEO’s Treger and Rob Strasberg and co-produced in partnership with BYUtv, Welcome Home features a dedicated team of designers and volunteers who transform each empty house into a dignified and welcoming home. The newly furnished home becomes the launching point for new careers and the catalyst for improved family dynamics.
“Litton Entertainment is pleased to partner with Red Arrow Studios International as their reputation as a leading producer and distributor of quality content aligns with Litton’s mission to inspire viewers around the globe,’ commented Dave Morgan, CEO and founder of Litton Entertainment.
Bo Stehmeier, president of Red Arrow Studios International said:
“Welcome Home is an empathetic and heart-warming new take on the home improvement genre, we are delighted to be partnering with Litton Entertainment to bring this inspiring series to the international market.”
Humble Design was formed in the summer of 2009 and now operates in Detroit, Chicago, Seattle and San Diego, thanks to the generosity of their supporters and partners. At the heart of each episode is its original moto, “Design with Dignity.”
Welcome Home currently airs weekly on The CW as a part of Litton’s three-hour programming block, One Magnificent Morning.
