MIPTV Spotlight: FilmRise


The classic true-crime series Forensic Files features on FilmRise’s slate, offering viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the science involved in solving crimes through dramatic re-creations, interviews with experts and reviews of key evidence.

Forensic Files is a well-known global brand, and major broadcasters around the world find that the series enjoys a steady and loyal audience and continues to generate great ratings,” says Melissa Wohl, senior VP and head of content sales.

The FilmRise catalog also includes Cheaters, in which people who think their significant other is cheating on them hire a hidden camera crew to investigate.

In Dr. G: Medical Examiner, another true-crime series, coroner Jan “Dr. G.” Garavaglia provides explanations and theories for some of the morgue’s most puzzling cases.

“Each series has been identified as having universal and global appeal to a high-performing demographic,” adds Wohl.
