GRB Sends True-Crime Docs to Europe & the Caribbean


GRB Entertainment has secured sales for several crime documentaries, including Until Proven Innocent: The Hannah Overton Story, in the Caribbean, U.K., Poland and Denmark.

International Media Content in the Caribbean picked up Black and Blue. The one-hour documentary showcases the real-life stories of young black men facing racial profiling and police brutality. It also offers a look at the black officers in their neighborhood who are caught between their job fighting crime and their own identity.

Polsat in Poland snapped up the two-hour documentary The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter. The program delves into the Manson Family, bringing viewers to more than 40 locations related to the infamous Tate/LaBianca murders and outlining the dozens of odd connections between Charles Manson and the Hollywood elite.

WP1 Grupa in Poland, Danish Broadcasting Corporation in Denmark and Sony Entertainment Networks in the U.K. all acquired Babies Behind Bars, a compelling 90-minute doc following the lives of female inmates at Washington Corrections Center who are participating in a program that allows them to raise their babies while they serve time. Sony also went for Until Proven Innocent: The Hannah Overton Story, which examines the mysterious salt poisoning death of 4-year-old Andrew Burd. His foster mother, Hannah Overton, was charged with capital murder and sent to prison for life.

“GRB Entertainment has over 40 crime titles in our current catalog, exploring some of the most fascinating, and dangerous, events around the world,” said Michael Lolato, the senior VP of international distribution at GRB Entertainment. “We are thrilled to bring these documentaries to our partners in Europe and the Caribbean. Their viewers are sure to be enthralled by these stories.”
