Beyond Rights crowns Mipcom slate with King Charles III documentary

Documentary Charles: The New King features rare footage

A documentary about the new UK monarch, King Charles III, is headlining London-based distributor Beyond Rights’ Mipcom slate.

Charles: The New King is a two-hour documentary from ITN Productions featuring rare royal archive and new interviews from those closest to Charles, who became King following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, earlier this month.

Beyond Rights is also bringing Diana (6×60′), a series from October Films that re-examines the life and legacy of Princess Diana through a fresh lens of modernity, showing her to be a feminist role model.

In total, Beyond Rights said it is launching nearly 200 new unscripted hours into the international market this fall, including content from what Sarah Bickley, Beyond Rights’ head of sales, called “the very latest ‘must-have’ genre, true-con.”

The Con (1×90′, 1×60′) comes from White Pine Pictures with Beetz Brother Film Productions and PMA Productions and tells a gripping and dramatic story from World War II. Involving dirty tricks, sex, lies and ‘fake news,’ it covers the largest and most elaborate espionage operation ever mounted by one country against an ally.

Beyond Rights will also bring Reframed: Marilyn Monroe (4×60′), a series produced by Raw that looks at how Monroe took on the power brokers in Hollywood and challenged the misogyny of 1950s America.

Right Here, Right Now (1×90′), meanwhile, is a feature-length film from BeyondTNC and BMG Films which captures a rave event in Brighton in 2002, where DJ Fatboy Slim made history performing to a quarter of a million people.

Other titles on the slate include Vikings: The True Story (2×60′), Abandoned Americana (6×60′), Building the Impossible (3×60′), Drowning in Lies (2×60′), Deadly Kin (10×60′), The Style Counsellors (18×30′), Wild Heroes (9×30′) and Animals Aboard (8×60′).

Bickley said: “Mipcom this year promises to be a fantastic event with the industry out in force, coming together properly for the first time since October 2019.”
