Cineflix Rights unveils MIPTV 2018 slate

Cineflix Rights, the UK’s largest independent TV content distributor, has unveiled its biggest slate ever of new programming for MIPTV 2018. 
 
The Queen’s Green Planet (1x60’, ITN Productions, ITV), from multi-award-winning director Jane Treays, is a landmark documentary following the progress of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s ambitious initiative to build a global network of protected forests. At the centre of the film, which includes access to members of the Royal Family and Angelina Jolie, is an informal conversation between The Queen and world-renowned broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough set on the grounds of Buckingham Palace.  
 
Sinking Cities (4x60’, Cineflix Productions, PBS) follows local planners, first-responders, scientists, and engineers as they gear up for an epic battle with climate change. Facing rising sea levels and intensifying weather systems, they’re fighting a global threat that’s forcing people to rethink the very nature of their existence. Every episode explores a different hot spot as London, New York, Tokyo, and Miami reimagine their future. 
 
Expecting (17x30’, UP Entertainment, UP TV) is a groundbreaking series in which couples turn the lens on themselves—allowing audiences to be a part of their personal journey through sharing their pregnancy milestones. No producers. No camera crews. With unprecedented intimacy, viewers witness the highs and lows culminating in one of life’s biggest moments.
 
My Family and the Galapagos (3x60’, Seadog TV & Film Productions/Motion Content Group, Channel 4) follows marine biologist and conservationist Monty Halls and his family to his “favourite place on Earth”—The Galapagos Islands. Over three months, they share extraordinary wildlife encounters and life-changing experiences, and investigate the wonders and challenges that both define and threaten this awe-inspiring jewel of nature.  
 
Secrets of the Morgue (13x60’, Cineflix Productions) explores high-profile murder cases from the perspective of the medical examiner, as they work alongside homicide detectives to bring justice to murder victims and their families. From initial observations at the scene of the crime to the autopsy and beyond, each episode gets under the skin to unlock riveting crime puzzles.
 
Going to War (1x60’, Vulcan Productions, PBS) is a powerful look at the soldier’s experience told by Sebastian Junger, director of the Academy Award®-nominated documentary Restrepo, and Karl Marlantes, a highly decorated Marine Officer and author. The film reflects their firsthand experience, hard-won wisdom, and abiding commitment to unflinchingly tell the warrior’s story from civilian to frontline battle and returning home again. 
 
Chris Bonney, CEO Rights, Cineflix Media said: “Cineflix Rights is heading down to MIPTV with one of our biggest and most diverse slates. We have breathtaking and inspiring documentaries, award-winning directors, and intimate access to world famous institutions, natural wonders, and everyday people. I’m thrilled to be offering our buyers such a great mix of new programming.”
