GRB Shores Up Sales for Wildlife & Nature Titles


GRB Entertainment has inked several deals in Asia and Europe for its wildlife and extreme nature programming, with Great White Highway among them.

AB Droits Audiovisuels snapped up Hurricane Hunters, Great White Highway and Prehistoric Assassins for its French and French-speaking territories, while Polsat in Poland went for Extreme Animal Obsessions, which showcases individuals’ dedication to their favorite creatures. Nippon TV in Japan and Hubu Media in China both picked up When Fish Attack, which offers an analytical look at surprise underwater attacks. In addition, Hubu acquired When Animals Bite Back, spotlighting real-life encounters with captive and wild animals.

“GRB Entertainment’s extensive catalog holds some of the most provocative and extreme nature and wildlife series,” said Michael Lolato, the senior VP of international distribution at GRB Entertainment. “With climate change being a strong issue affecting everyone around the world, nature programming has seen a resurgence recently and we are pleased to be able to offer many titles in this genre to our broadcasting partners.”
