MIPTV: UK indie Zig Zag Productions has sold a programme about a British sex addict to broadcasters in Australasia, the Netherlands, Scandinavia and Poland.
Confessions of a Sex Addict, in which TV presenter and comic Jeff Leach tries to uncover the root of his addiction, will broadcast on TVNZ (New Zealand), ABC (Australia), Discovery’s TLC (Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands), MTV3 (Finland), TV2 (Denmark) and TVN (Poland).
Zig Zag’s VP of commercial and current production Leila Monks said she had used her relationships with broadcasters to do the deals directly. Monks’ former employer, distributor TVF International, is handling rights for the rest of the world. The documentary aired on UK diginet BBC3 in January.
