GRB Places Crime Series into Europe, Oz & New Zealand


SHERMAN OAKS: GRB Entertainment has secured sales for several true-crime and justice titles, including On the Case with Paula Zahn.

Foxtel picked up three seasons of the investigative crime series On the Case with Paula Zahn for Australia and New Zealand. Hosted by the titular Emmy Award-winning journalist, the series puts a spotlight on murder mysteries through in-depth interviews with people closest to the cases.

UKTV, meanwhile, acquired the courtroom series Judge Faith Jenkins for its U.K. and Ireland feeds. The series features the former beauty queen and Wall Street attorney who brings her no-nonsense style of justice to the courtroom as she presides over cases. In addition, Fox UK signed on for the real-life crime series Killer Kids, which explores heinous crimes committed by children, from gang initiations and hate crimes to the murders of family members.

“GRB Entertainment is a master of crime and justice programming and we represent some of the world’s most in-depth investigative and in-demand series in this genre,” said Michael Lolato, the senior VP of international distribution at GRB Entertainment. “Killer Kids, Judge Faith Jenkins and On the Case are all examples of the most compelling programming for which GRB holds international rights, and these programs are sure to attract many viewers for our broadcast partners.”
