Oxford Film and Television has appointed Drive to globally distribute a documentary film celebrating the life of Princess Diana.

The 90-minute film, which is yet to be titled, will be built around interviews with The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who will discuss how their mother and her work have shaped their lives. Drive has already presold the doc to HBO Documentary Films for the U.S. market. Oxford Film and Television is producing the program for ITV in the U.K. It will broadcast on both ITV and HBO this summer, which marks the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death.

Lilla Hurst, joint managing director of Drive, said, “We are incredibly excited to be working with OFTV on such a high-profile documentary. We are already finalizing terms for a number of presales with international broadcasters keen to mark the anniversary. This will undoubtedly be a program that also holds value for many years to come.”

Nick Kent, the film’s executive producer at Oxford Film and Television, commented, “Drive is the perfect partner to work with us on such a prestigious film with huge global interest. It plays perfectly to their strengths in securing international presales.”
