TCB Media Rights to Rep Restless Legs Syndrome Doc


LONDON: TCB Media Rights has picked up the international distribution rights for Icon Films’ one-off documentary Restless Legs: Can’t Stop Twitching.

Restless Legs: Can’t Stop Twitching spotlights individuals who suffer from Restless Legs Syndrome, a condition that is often referred to as “the most common disease you’ve never heard of.” The hour-long doc is executive produced by Stephen McQuillan for Icon Films. It was originally commissioned for Channel 5 in the U.K.

Lucy Middelboe, the commercial director of Icon Films, commented: “TCB Media Rights’ enthusiasm for the subject matter and the sales potential of Restless Legs: Can’t Stop Twitching was obvious from beginning. We’re sure they are the right partner to sell this fascinating documentary internationally.”

Paul Heaney, the CEO of TCB Media Rights, added: “Icon Films are just pure pleasure to work with: open, talented and highly efficient…a bit like TCB in many ways—just kidding! The combination of a doc like Restless Legs made by an indie like Icon make it highly desirable for buyers.”
