The Price of Fame (6×60’), commissioned by US cablenet Reelz from Texas-based AMS Pictures, explores the private lives of celebrities including Prince, Johnny Depp, Robin Williams and Carrie Fisher.

Wedding series Where to I Do? (8X30’), which looks for the perfect location to tie the knot, is produced by Canada’s Bell Media and Motion Content Group for Gusto Canada.

Doc Big Ben: Saving the World’s Most Famous Clock (1×90’) comes from UK producer ITN Productions and follows the most extensive renovation in the landmark’s 160-year history. It was commissioned by pubcaster Channel 4 in the UK.
