Leading independent distributor, DRG today announces a raft of new deals in Eastern Europe from its portfolio of programming acquired through an exclusive deal with Current TV.
Award winning and hard-hitting documentary series ‘Vanguard’ has been licensed to TVN, Poland and to Chello Central Europe ahead of next week’s NATPE Budapest. The no-limits series features correspondents putting themselves in extraordinary situations in order to engage viewers in controversial issues that have a far-reaching social significance. ‘Vanguard’ isn’t afraid to break boundaries and tackle provocative and sometimes disturbing issues with insight and eloquence.
Additional sales for ‘Vanguard’ have also been brokered with VRT, Belgium; NHK, Japan; Al Hurra, Middle East and AETN, Asia .
Reema Patel, Sales Manager at DRG comments: “Current TV’s portfolio has proven extremely popular internationally, with these pre-NATPE sales further demonstrating the broad international market appeal of its programming library. The wide range of topics tackled across the titles that DRG represents have a universal appeal and go above and beyond the traditional documentary. We look forward to taking Current’s catalogue to Budapest next week and securing additional broadcast sales.”
Chello Central Europe has also purchased the shocking ‘Bootleg Booze’, which investigates the dangers of counterfeit alcohol and the controversial ‘Bride Trafficking Unveiled’, examining why the UK and Ireland are experiencing a significant growth in so-called “mail order brides”.
Additional sales have also been concluded for ‘Male Hookers Uncovered’ with the ultimate no-holds-barred exploration of the reality of life for male escorts travelling to Sky Network Television, New Zealand; ABC2, Australia; TV5 Finland and TV2 in Denmark. Separately, NHK, Japan and Al Hurra, Middle East have purchased ‘For The Love Of Libya’, the insightful documentary that takes us behind the scenes of the founding of a new Libya, seen through the eyes of the British Libyan youth.
