AMC Spain, TF1 take Scorpion shows

AB Groupe in France has picked up Hello World

AMC Networks in Spain has agreed a deal for five documentaries, including one about Brexit, from UK distributor Scorpion TV, which has also sold titles to France’s TF1 and other European broadcasters.

Brexit Means Brexit: The Unofficial Version (1×57’) was produced by Oxford Films for BBC1 and sees director Patrick Forbes examine the impact of Britain’s decision to leave the European Union.

The other docs going to AMC in Spain are The Great Wild Indoors (1×45’), Spinner Dolphins (1×52’), Alamto: A Reptile Wonderland (1×60’) and Do Women Have a Higher Sex Drive? (1×52’).

TF1, meanwhile, has picked up Scorpion docs for both its main channel and its thematic nets. For the main channel, Diana: In Her Own Words (1×110’), produced by UK indie Kaboom Film & TV for Channel 4, sees the late princess talk candidly on a range of subjects.

Among the titles headed for TF1’s thematic channels are Flying Rainbow (1×52’), which has been acquired for natural history-skewing Ushuaia. The doc follows a year in the life of one of the rarest birds in the world, the oriental dwarf kingfisher.

The Search for the Last Supper (1×52’), originally produced for PBS by Pantheon Productions, has been picked up for TF1’s natural history-focused Ushuaia. It explores the theory that Leonardo da Vinci painted a second version of his Last Supper.

In Italy, Sky Italia has also taken The Search for the Last Supper, while Rai has acquired Chile: A Wild Journey (1×52’), one of an eight-part series of titles in a franchise exploring different animals in the South American country.

Other Scorpion sales in Europe include It’s A Match (1×56’), which has been picked up by RTVE in Spain. The documentary tells a love story about two women who meet online and find themselves physically and mentally bound together after a kidney transplant.

Finally, AB Groupe in France has acquired Bloomberg’s science-tech series Hello World (10×30’), which introduces inventors, scientists and technologists who are shaping the future.
