Medieval Murder Mysteries Among TCB Media Rights’ Asia Sales


LONDON: TCB Media Rights has inked a 12-title package deal with Red Apollo Group in China for Medieval Murder Mysteries and other factual programs.

In addition to the six-part Medieval Murder Mysteries from Like A Shot Entertainment, Red Apollo Group acquired The Somme: The First 24 Hours and Middlechild Productions’ Kitten Impossible. Other titles included in the package deal are Attaboy TV’s Deals Wheels and Steals, Icon Films’ Mega-Yachts, Brightspark Films/Argonon International’s Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords, Services Sound & Vision’s PARA Platoon: Ready for Anything, Like a Shot’s Private Lives of the Tudors, TVT Productions’ Scammers, Seven Productions’ Surveillance Dash Cam and Northern Sky Entertainment’s War Junk.

In other sales in the region, AMS Pictures’ Murder Made Me Famous went to AETN Asia, while WAGtv’s What On Earth? was picked up by Discovery Asia.

Mem Bakar, TCB Media Rights’ sales manager for Asia, Latin America and Iberia, said, “Everything about Asia is huge, from the size of its market to the opportunities it offers. And it’s also a hugely complex and competitive market, with business practices, tastes and cultures that are very different to those of the West. But these latest deals demonstrate that quality, family-friendly factual content is in demand everywhere, whether you’re in Singapore or Shanghai, London or Los Angeles—and that’s exactly what TCB brings to the table.”
