Cineflix Rights seals crime programming deals in advance of MIPTV 2013
Cineflix Rights, one of the UK’s leading independent television content distributors, has signed a raft of deals for its crime programming in the lead up to MIPTV 2013.
Wives with Knives (6x60’, Indigo Films), tells gripping stories of women who have committed violent crimes against their husbands or lovers, and has been particularly successful. Cineflix Rights has signed deals for the series with Foxtel Australia, Discovery Latin America and Discovery Poland.
Discovery Poland has also bought Murder in Paradise (6x60', Cineflix Productions), which investigates jaw-dropping tales of dream getaways torn apart by a horrific murder; together with Karma's a B*tch (6x60’, Cineflix Productions) in which The Sopranos’ Steve Schirripa reveals stories of just how far some people are willing to go to balance the scales of justice and get revenge.
TV4 Sweden, Discovery Latin America and Nippon Japan have bought several seasons of Unusual Suspects (LMNO Productions), which showcases some of the most baffling and challenging investigations in modern law enforcement. Motives and Murders (Cineflix Productions), which follows detectives as they unearth the clues that lead them to the perpetrators of some truly chilling homicides, also continues to perform well for broadcasters, with Discovery EMEA buying seasons 1 and 2 (20x60’).
Discovery EMEA and Latin America, UKTV and Group TVA Canada have bought Surviving Evil (10x60’, Cineflix Productions), in which Charisma Carpenter presents the real-life stories of how victims of violence fought back against their attackers and against the odds, survived. MTV Latin America has licensed seasons 1 to 3 of Murder She Solved (24x60’), which follows female criminal investigators as they reveal the untold stories behind the capture of the most notorious killers, for US Hispanic channel, Trés.
Crime programming is also increasing in popularity in Asian markets, with Fox Channels India buying seasons 4 and 5 of Cold Blood (20x60’, Cineflix Productions) which pieces together all the evidence to uncover what happened in notorious crime scenes.
Chris Bonney, CEO of Rights, Cineflix Media said: “These latest deals demonstrate the continuing popularity of crime programming with broadcasters all over the world. Alongside new seasons of returning brands, we are bringing a large number of new crime titles down to MIPTV 2013, including some fantastic US series from Cineflix Productions and LMNO Productions, all of which I’m confident will deliver high ratings and develop into long running brands.”
