Electus International has signed a deal with SIC Portugal to bring 206.5 hours of content to the country, including Mob Wives, Swamp Pawn, Bellator MMA, 3, House of DVF, Dating Naked and Fashion Star.

Fashion Star, 3 and House of DVF will air on SIC MULHER, and Fashion Star will also air on SIC CARAS, with Bellator, Mob Wives, Dating Naked and Swamp Pawn airing on SIC Radical.

"The relationship we have with SIC is very important to us, and we're proud to announce this multi-genre deal in Portugal that exceeds 200 hours of premium content," said Diego Piasek, vice president at Electus International.

Mob Wives is a docu-reality series that follows a group of New York women whose husbands have been incarcerated for Mafia-related crimes. Swamp Pawn follows Rick Phillips of Phillips Swamp Seafood in Bayou Pigeon, Louisiana, which buys and sells anything the bayou serves up including alligators, turtles, bullfrogs, crawfish and more. Dating Naked is a social experiment, where daters are asked to bare everything else before they bare their souls.

In Fashion Star, designers vie to win a multi-million dollar contract to launch their line in American retail stores. 3, the US remake of the Keshet International format Girlfri3nds, follows three single women, at different ages with different life experiences, as they embark on a journey to find their match. And in House of DVF, contestants compete for a chance to work closely with iconic designer Diane Von Furstenberg and travel the world as a 'DVF girl.'
