SBS Australia Picks Up Royal-Themed Shows from TCB


TCB Media Rights has sold Diana and the Paparazzi and Royal Murder Mysteries to SBS Australia.

This marks the first deal for the hour-long doc Diana and the Paparazzi, which was originally produced by TVT Productions for Smithsonian and Discovery UK. Like A Shot’s 6×1-hour Royal Murder Mysteries, originally produced for UKTV, also recently sold to Viasat World.

Paul Heaney, the CEO of TCB Media Rights, said: “We knew the combination of the 20-year anniversary of Princess Diana’s death in a Paris car crash along with the boom in scripted royal period drama like The Crown would give this show a lift, but the screenings at MIPDoc have been unprecedented. Like A Shot’s series plays well with mystery and royals being in the top sub-genres of factual, so it’s been a high-octane kick off to have a broadcaster of SBS’s standing endorse them here at MIPTV.”
