Queen, Attenborough doc tops Cineflix slate

David Attenborough and Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen’s Green Planet

A documentary featuring Queen Elizabeth II and natural history broadcaster Sir David Attenborough discussing conservation is headlining Cineflix Rights’ MipTV slate.

The Queen’s Green Planet (1×60’) was originally produced by ITN Productions for UK commercial broadcaster ITV and follows the Queen’s ambitious initiative to plant a global network of protected forests.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Jane Treays and with the meeting between the Queen and Attenborough at its heart, the doc also includes access to other members of the royal family as well as environmental campaigner and Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie.

It joins the extensive factual slate being offered by UK-based Cineflix Rights at MipTV in Cannes next month.

Also new to its line-up are PBS series Sinking Cities (4×60’) from Canada-based Cineflix Productions, which looks at plans being made by local authorities, first responders, scientists and engineers to cope with climate change.

Expecting (17×30’), from Up Entertainment for US cablenet UP TV, is also slated. The series focuses on couples who film their own journey through pregnancy milestones without producers or camera crews.

Channel 4’s My Family & the Galapagos (3×60’), fronted by biologist and conservationist Monty Don, is also available. The show is produced by Seadog TV and Film Productions and Motion Content Group.

High-profile murder cases are under the spotlight in Cineflix Productions’ Secrets of the Morgue (13×60’), while PBS’s Going to War (1×60’), from Vulcan Productions, looks at a soldier’s experience through the eyes of marine Karl Marlantes and Restrepo director Sebastien Hunger.
