Beyond Distribution Unveils Factual Highlights for MIPTV


LONDON: Beyond Distribution is launching the new season of Chasing Monsters at MIPTV, alongside Moving the McGillivrays and more.

The second season of Chasing Monsters is produced by Untamed Productions for Evasion Canada and is presented by extreme adventurer Cyril Chauquet. This new chapter takes viewers even further and deeper into a world of mysterious and dangerous underwater creatures. The first season has been sold in more than 120 territories.

Also launching at MIPTV, Moving the McGillivrays is the latest series to focus on Scott McGillivray, host of HGTV Canada home DIY series Income Property, which is also represented internationally by Beyond Distribution. Moving the McGillivrays follows Scott and his wife as they build their new family dream home, whilst helping another family in need build theirs.

Made by Beyond Productions for Discovery Science, MythBusters: The Search follows the hunt for the next myth-busting superstars. “Featuring a host of never-before-seen spectacular stunts, the teams continue to bust myths in a celebration of curiosity, questioning and experimentation that was the hallmark of the original series,” says Munia Kanna-Konsek, the head of sales at Beyond Distribution.

The company is also launching Outlaw Tech, which explores high-tech crimes and the science behind how they were carried out. There’s a new children’s series as well, Nippers, which spotlights the Surf Life Saving’s junior activity program in Australia. “If there is a metaphor to encapsulate the series it’s that the beach can be exciting, unpredictable and sometimes scary—and so too can growing up,” Kanna-Konsek says.

“We continue to seek more content from up-and-coming producers to represent their programming internationally,” she adds.
