PBS International Shores Up Deals for The Age of Consequences


The documentary The Age of Consequences, which deals with the military and political implications of climate change, has been sold to a wide range of broadcasters globally by PBS International.

The doc has been picked up by Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Middle East Broadcasting Network (Alhurra), DIRECTV Latin America, Globosat (GNT), TV Ontario (TVO), TVN24, Public Television Service Taiwan (PTS), Vlaamse Radio en Televisie (VRT) and Eesti Rahvusringhaaling (EER). The Age of Consequences investigates the impact of climate change on increased resource scarcity, human migration and conflict through the lens of U.S. national security and global stability.

The director of acquisitions for PBS International, Tracy Beckett, said, “In today’s political climate, The Age of Consequences is an incredibly relevant film, which is why it is getting so much play around the world in both the theatrical tour and in broadcast.”
