MIPTV Spotlight: Orange Smarty Distribution


Orange Smarty Distribution’s catalog features over 2,000 hours of factual content, and the company plans to launch 180 hours of new programming for MIPTV.

Its slate is led by Cursed Treasures, a ten-part series in which archaeologists and scientists look to uncover the truth behind the deadly curses bestowed on the finders of some of the world’s most fascinating treasures.

Nazanin tells the story of British Iranian Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliff, who was detained in Iran for six years as part of a dispute between the U.K. and Iran.

Also on the slate, Stacey Dooley: Ready for War, which provides exclusive access to the British Army’s covert combat program and follows ordinary Ukrainian civilians as they go through intensive training to fight on the frontline against Russia.

“We are delighted to be bringing such a strong and eclectic mix of content to the market, being able to offer something for everyone whether it be a one-off, series or format is the key to our selling successes,” says Karen Young, CEO.
