MIPTV Spotlight: Passion Distribution


The 90-minute documentary Gold: A Journey with Idris Elba, a highlight of the Passion Distribution slate, sees A-list actor Idris Elba take audiences on an adventure that explores the meaning of gold and how it has shaped cultures, religions and entire economies around the world.

“Featuring a global star, this is a premium, continent-hopping documentary exploring the universal story of gold,” says Nick Tanner, director of sales and co-productions. “The production values, access and talent set it apart.”

Also on the company’s slate, the six-part Help! We Bought a Hotel is an aspirational lifestyle series following daring entrepreneurs taking on the challenge of running a hotel.

Churchill’s Forgotten War is a one-hour documentary that charts the actions of Winston Churchill at the beginning of World War II.

“We’re focused on providing mainstream yet distinctive unscripted content, participating in the creation of new projects and expanding the success of existing IP,” says Tanner.
