GRB Studios Inks Global Deals Ahead of MIPTV


GRB Studios has inked deals for a variety of series with Foxtel, FilmRise, CTV Life Channel and Outdoor Entertainment Network in territories around the world.

For Australia and New Zealand, Foxtel picked up seasons one and two of Music’s Greatest Mysteries, which explores topics that have altered the music world and highlights the people who have changed the course of music history.

FilmRise licensed Death Walker featuring Nick Groff in the U.S. and premiered it on its branded AVOD services, FAST and YouTube channels. The series sees Groff investigate the origin of some of the most notorious hauntings in the U.S.

In Canada, CTV Life Channel acquired season three of Living By Design. In the Cleo TV production, brother and sister duo Jake and Jazz Smollett transform living, work and play spaces from drab to fab, whether it’s a new mom decorating a nursery on a tight budget or a couple moving into their first home.

Outdoor Entertainment Network, meanwhile, picked up three programs for its pan-regional channels in the AsiaPac region. This includes Down to Earth with Zac Efron, a travelogue, food odyssey and eco-warrior series all in one; Jet Track, an automotive docuseries about the Darnell auto racing family; and Showdown of the Unbeatables, a competition show in which inventors and entrepreneurs pit their unique products and machines against each other.
