TV Real Screenings Festival Spotlight: Off the Fence


Off the Fence is promoting several history titles in the TV Real Screenings Festival, including the 12-part series Truthseekers.

“We all know there’s a never-ending appetite for mysteries,” says Stefanie Fischer, managing director of sales. “For buyers looking for new answers and angles to stories such as the pyramids and the Bermuda triangle, this is the series to watch.”

Fischer also highlights the four-part History’s Ultimate Influencers, noting: “Our buyers are always looking for new ways to explore history and people. This series looks at the biggest names of our past, from a modern lens, making icons such as Nelson Mandela and Marilyn Monroe more relatable to today than ever before.”

Also on offer is the four-part The People vs the Klan, about Beulah Mae Donald, who took on the Ku Klux Klan after the brutal murder and lynching of her son. “This series will have you on the edge of your seat,” says Loren Baxter, head of acquisitions at Off the Fence. “Expertly produced and extremely timely, we revisit the unjust murder of Michael Donald and a mother’s relentless appeal for justice.”

The five-part Giants, meanwhile, is a new nature/wildlife series fronted by biologist and conservationist Dan O’Neill. “Dan is one of the best on-screen talents we’ve seen for a long time,” Fischer says. “He brings energy, fun and authenticity to this packed series full of incredible CGI and the biggest animals to live on Earth today.”
