Cineflix Rights Boosts Third-Party Factual Slate


LONDON: The U.K.’s Cineflix Rights has acquired several new factual titles, among them the hipster chef series Chuck’s World from Trio Orange.

That series follows celebrity chef and restaurateur Chuck Hughes on an adventurous food travelogue to some of the world’s most hidden-away corners. Other pickups include Mountains and Life from Green Bay Media, an exploration of some of the world’s most spectacular mountain landscapes; the comedy special The Improv: 50 Years Behind to Brick Wall from Spotted Dog Entertainment; and the feature-length World War II documentary Sniperwatch from long-standing partner Yap Films.

“These deals meet strong demand from our buyers for high-end, blue-chip history and natural-history content, alongside the enduring popularity of programming that combines cooking and travel,” said Chris Bonney, the CEO of Rights at Cineflix Media. “I’m really pleased to be welcoming new producer partners to Cineflix Rights as we continue to expand our third-party slate. We’ll be at Realscreen West looking to do further factual content deals.”
