Autentic Distribution Secures Presales for Pair of Titles


Autentic Distribution has presold the upcoming science series The Animal Within and the sports and adventure series The Huntsman.

The German free-TV channel ntv, owned by RTL Group, has acquired free-TV rights for German-speaking territories for the series and will premiere them in 2021. The Animal Within is produced by the Canadian production company Go Button Media, while The Huntsman is produced by smac. As both series are co-produced by in-house production label Autentic, Autentic Distribution holds worldwide distribution rights and will be launching the shows to market at MIPCOM Online+.

Mirjam Strasser, head of sales and acquisitions, said: “Our brand-new series The Animal Within is a hidden gem in our new slate. It is a COVID-19-proof show, which looks under the hood of incredible creatures that have been perfected by nature over time and shows what we can learn from them to make humankind better. The Huntsman on the other hand, is full of action and manpower. We follow the modern hunters of today into the woods and experience the craftsmanship of hunting up close. However, the series also focuses on sustainability. With their profession, hunters contribute to a sustainable world, and we show you how. Both production companies have produced high-quality factual series that are enlightening, powerful and entertaining.”
