GRB Sends Factual Content to Asia


SHERMAN OAKS: GRB Entertainment has secured sales across the Asian region for several sports, wildlife and lifestyle titles, including the culinary series Hayden Quinn.

Discovery Asia-Pacific acquired Hayden Quinn for Central and South Asia, Indian territory and New Zealand. The series follows the former MasterChef Australia contestant on a culinary adventure throughout South Africa as he learns about the culture, meets locals and cooks the best local and sustainable cuisine the country has to offer.

Hubu Media in China went for the documentary Great White Highway. The title looks at Great White Sharks that are being tracked by scientists who hope to discover why they come to the central coast of California, why they leave and where they go.

In addition, Looking Glass International picked up the World Cup documentary All Eyes on Brazil for China. Fans can relive the 2014 FIFA World Cup and see how the sporting event impacted cities across Brazil. The company also acquired the automotive competition series World Desert Championship.

“Asia and Pacific Rim remain a tremendously strong and growing market for GRB and we are thrilled that our broadcast partners in the region have acquired programming that will undoubtedly appeal to their viewers,” said Liz Levenson, the VP of international acquisitions and sales. “We are looking forward to meeting with both our existing partners and new clients at ATF.”
