MIPCOM Spotlight: Parade


CANNES: Rick Fenny, who has been a veterinarian for 40 years, is the focus of Parade’s docuseries Desert Vet.

The show follows Fenny, his family and his network of vet clinics as they encounter challenges that come from working with animals in some of the most remote and hostile conditions across the vast state of Western Australia.

The first season of Chris Humfrey’s Animal Instinct, another top title for Parade, follows the Aussie zoologist as he showcases the importance of protecting all living creatures. “You’ll fall in love with this modern-day Dr. Dolittle and be entertained by his animal adventures at home and around the country, leading us all to help save the planet,” says Matthew Ashcroft, the company’s CEO.

There’s also a first season of Backpacker Nightmares, about the scams, robberies and abductions that can occur while traveling.

“Parade offers premium factual programming from the world’s leading producers,” adds Ashcroft.
