Cineflix accepts Extra Life from Nutopia

Extra Life: A Short History of Living Longer examines advances in public health

UK distributor Cineflix Rights has added a forthcoming PBS science series from London-based production outfit Nutopia to its sales slate.

Extra Life: A Short History of Living Longer (4×60’) examines some of the medical advances that have changed the face of public health, spanning 300 years of medical study.

This is the first collaboration between the two companies and forms part of Cineflix Rights’ springtime slate.

Nutopia was founded by Jane Root, former president of Discovery Networks and controller of UK channel BBC2. It is known for relaxation series A World of Calm and The World According to Jeff Goldblum.

Richard Life, head of acquisitions at Cineflix Rights, told C21: “We’ve always wanted to work with Nutopia and I’ve known Jane for quite a while so we could see the potential for the series. It’s a premium, top-drawer factual series with huge timeliness, despite having been filmed before Covid.”

Carl Griffin, MD of Nutopia, said: “Now more than ever we need a show that provides thoughtful research and clarity on issues surrounding public health. Extra Life: A Short History of Living Longer tells the untold story of the innovations in science and medicine that doubled the human lifespan in under a century and celebrates the unsung heroes who made this happen. We look forward to working with Cineflix Rights to further the worldwide exposure of this timely series.”
