CNBC gets into Debt

The US cable channel CNBC signs on for three seasons of Frantic Films' reality Til Debt Do Us Part.

Frantic Films’ popular reality series Til Debt Do Us Part is headed to US cable channel CNBC, following a deal reached on behalf of the producers by Toronto’s Picture Box Distribution.

The sale gives Debt – which previously aired stateside on the smaller American Life TV Network – more prominent exposure in the US on CNBC, which reaches 97 million American homes. Debt, which airs here on Slice, will premiere on CNBC on Saturday. Produced by Winnipeg-based Frantic in association with Canwest, it follows financial guru Gail Vaz-Oxlade as she uses tough love to help families get to the bottom of their destructive spending habits.
