Paul Heaney and Dina Subhani, the founders of TCB Media Rights, opened the distribution and co-production outfit BossaNova late last year, and MIPTV marks the company’s first market.
Highlights of the slate include King of Tigers with Ross Kemp, produced for ITV. “We believe that a noisy human-interest show with a popular host made for a major network in a prime-time slot is a pretty good start,” says Heaney, co-founder and CEO.
There’s also Cats and Dogs at War, along with three seasons of Borderforce USA: The Bridges.
“We have a track record from TCB that shows that we listen to what the buyers want and very often then return to provide them with content that fits their brief,” says Heaney.
