UK indie producer Zig Zag has sealed a raft of deals on its one-off sex therapy documentary Real 40 Year Old Virgins. The program first aired on Channel 4 earlier this year and stars Cheryl Cohen Greene, the therapist played by Helen Hunt in The Sessions. Discovery Fit & Health has acquired it for the U.S. and Discovery TLC has taken it in Poland. Other broadcaster deals include Australia’s ABC, RTL2 in Germany, Norway’s TV Norge, TV2 in Denmark, SBS in the Netherlands and VMMA in Belgium. The hourlong film follows Clive and Rosie as they work with therapists and accredited sex surrogates and try to resolve their long-standing difficulties with physical and emotional intimacy. The pair spends two weeks in California working up to losing their virginity. Vice president of commercial and current production Leila Monks brokered the deals on behalf of Zig Zag.
