Distribution360, a marblemedia company positioned to monetize content across all existing and emerging platforms, is heading to Realscreen with a number of high profile sales from its factual and documentary library. Sales include its hit paranormal series Ghostly Encounters, two documentaries from Archie Productions and titles from its popular lifestyle collection.
“D360’s factual catalogue continues to go from strength-to-strength, with buyers choosing new additions to our catalogue as well as long-running and returning series,” said Diane Rankin, Senior Vice President, International Sales and Acquisitions, Distribution360.
After a sale of the complete series to Destination America (U.S.) last year, D360 has once again sold all 83 half-hour episodes of the Wraith Films Inc. paranormal series Ghostly Encounters to YourTV (UK). The highly personal ghost series uses re-enactments, interviews and archival photography as it takes an in-depth look at the individuals who experience otherworldly encounters.
Additionally, sales have been secured for two of D360’s latest documentary acquisitions from Archie Productions. SBS (Australia) has acquired the action-packed Britain’s Ultimate Pilots: Inside the RAF (4x60’), which documents the summer schedule of four RAF display teams as they prepare for the 75th anniversary of The Battle of Britain. Red Arrows: Inside the Bubble, narrated by Academy Award® Winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), will be flying to the States on American Public Television (US). The documentary offers a unique insight into the 120-strong team of pilots and ground crew in preparation for their 50th display season.
D360’s lifestyle catalogue continues to be popular with audiences internationally. Already in over two dozen countries, RTR Media’s Open House Overhaul (13x30’) continues to build its presence globally with a sale to African Business Channel (South Africa). Foxtel (Australia) continues to bring Si Entertainment’s Bryan Baeumler collection to its audience with a new season of Leave it to Bryan (26x30’) and House of Bryan: In the Sticks (24x30’).
