TORONTO, March 28, 2017 /CNW/ - Corus Studios, a division of Corus Entertainment, announced today it has sold the popular original lifestyle series Masters of Flip and Buying the View in multiple territories worldwide ahead of MIPTV.
MASTERS OF FLIP (26x60')
The first and second seasons of Masters of Flip have now sold to Discovery Networks International for TLC in Germany, TLC in the Benelux Union, and for Discovery Home & Health in Latin America; as well as to NBC Universal for Bravo in New Zealand.

Hit lifestyle series Masters of Flip features the dynamic super couple Kortney and Dave Wilson, who take on the challenge of transforming their rundown real estate investments into stunning and sellable family homes. Working with limited timelines and budgets, this real life husband and wife make their refreshingly positive outlook the driving force behind their projects. Despite the ever present "renovation frustration," they remain upbeat and kind to contractors, trades people and most importantly to each other! The series was developed and produced by Rhino Content in association with Corus Entertainment.

In each half-hour episode, viewers join realtors and potential buyers on the hunt for homes where the million dollar view always seals the deal. The series was developed and produced by Our House Media in association with Corus Studios.
