Kew Media Distribution to Showcase Griff Rhys Jones Titles in Cannes


Kew Media Distribution’s factual slate for MIPCOM will include the Griff Rhys Jones-led Griff’s Great Kiwi Road Trip.

The four-part series will follow the British comedian and travel enthusiast as he heads out into the wilds to explore New Zealand. Also available at the market will be the six-parter Griff’s Great Australian Rail Trip.

In the non-fiction series Road to Riches, Australian picker Lucas Callaghan visits households to convert their unwanted collectibles into cash. The Impossible: Live is a stunt series that sees world-class athletes attempt never-before-seen stunts that defy what we think of as possible—from the world’s highest wire walk to rescuing pilotless planes in mid-air. The documentary feature Laurel Canyon uses rare archival footage and audio recordings to reveal a mythical world and provide an up-close look at the lives of the musicians who inhabited it.

Season two of Paranormal 911 will continue the exploration of 911 calls that have led to paranormal encounters through the firsthand accounts of the first responders who lived them. The second season of Inside Evil with Chris Cuomo follows CNN’s Chris Cuomo as he continues to take viewers inside the most dangerous minds in America. The CNN Original docuseries The Movies explores American cinema throughout the decades and the cultural, societal and political shifts that framed its evolution. It combines archival footage and interviews with leading actors, directors, producers, critics and historians.

Billed as a cross between Antiques Roadshow and History Detectives, the new factual series Legacy List with Matt Paxton is based on the premise that the most important museums are in your parents’ house. It captures the drama of downsizing as movers pack away a houseful of revelations. In Body Hack 3.0, Todd Sampson embarks on an exploration investigating some of the world’s most extraordinary people.

Also new at MIPCOM are three non-fiction series produced by Our House Media, part of the Kew Media Group—Murder in Amish Country, My Paranormal Nightmare and Mutant Weather. There’s also High Maintenance, about how engineering marvels are looked after; and Haunted Hospitals’ second season, which tells chilling stories of paranormal activity within medical facilities.

Rounding out Kew Media Distribution’s factual slate for MIPCOM are Juice: How Electricity Explains the World, Mr. Toilet: The World’s #2 Man, Churchill and the Movie Mogul and The Amazing Johnathan Documentary.
