DCD funds four for Mipcom

UK-based independent distributor DCD Rights has secured production funding for four factual series to be launched at Mipcom next month.

Disasters Engineered (10×60′) explores mankind’s greatest engineering disasters, including the Titanic and Chernobyl. It is produced by SWR Media and Intermission Film in association with Dash Pictures for Discovery UK. DCD Rights will shop it internationally.

10 Steps to Murder (10×60′) is a documentary tracing the paths of both a killer and their victim step by step in 10 real-life murder cases. It is produced by FirstLookTV, distributed by DCD Rights and will air in the UK on Quest Red.

The Day My Job Tried to Kill Me, produced by Farpoint Films, is a 13×60′ series examining some of the world’s most infamous workplace disasters.

The final series, Wildest Places (12×60′), explores some of Earth’s most incredible natural habitats in the Pacific, Antarctic and Australia. It is produced by Wildbear Entertainment.

Each of the four series has received funding via DCD Rights’ producer support initiative, which offers independent production companies editorial management to help raise finance for factual programming.

To date, 55 hours of programming have been created through the initiative and the latest additions will add another 45 hours.

Nicky Davies Williams, CEO of DCD Rights, said: “At DCD Rights, we believe that in today’s multi-platform and mega-budget world it’s vital for enterprising production houses to tell the world important stories that would otherwise be left untold. Through our producer support initiative, we work with producers to help to secure the necessary budget to get these shows made.”
