MIPTV Spotlight: Content Media


The prime-time drama 21 Thunder makes its premiere this summer on CBC in Canada and is being presented to buyers by Content Media at MIPTV.

21 Thunder offers international audiences not only a story of love, crime, race, sex and athletic glory but also a core message about how this group of kids/footballers and the coaches all unite, even when life is spiraling out of control,” says Greg Phillips, the president of distribution at Content Media.

The comedic drama Date My Dad tells the story of a former professional baseball player who is a single dad raising three daughters. It delivers “a very entertaining perspective on modern life and relationships, exploring all the universally relatable drama, dilemmas and hilarity of family life,” Phillips says.

In addition, the documentary Cries from Syria made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and debuted on HBO in the U.S. Phillips says, “We’re looking forward to working with our broadcast partners to ensure these new titles reach their strong potential around the world.”
