Banijay Rights has licensed the hour-long documentary Diana’s Death: The Search for the Truth to a number of new broadcasters around the globe, including Reelz in the U.S.

Diana’s Death: The Search for the Truth was also snapped up by A&E Network in the U.K. and South Africa, as well as Sky Italia and TV8 in Italy. The special was acquired in Spain by ATRES for MEGA, and by AMC Networks International Iberia for ODISEA. It was also licensed in Israel by DBS and in CEE by TVN Poland, as well as RTVS in Slovakia.

Tim Mutimer, the CEO at Banijay Rights, said: “Twenty years on the events of that fateful night in Paris, which resulted in the tragic death of a truly global icon, continue to resonate around the world. This ongoing relevance and interest has seen Diana’s Death: The Search for the Truth in strong demand from our international clients, as highlighted by this first raft of deals. This revelatory film looks at many previously unexplored facets of the case, delivering incredibly compelling viewing, which we know, as already indicated by its high ratings in France, will be of huge interest to a global audience.”
