Comcast-owned European pay TV operator Sky has unveiled a slate of new factual titles to air on its Sky Documentaries channel and streaming service Now later this year, including a series about the late British TV host David Frost.

The Frost Tapes (6×45’) is a Sky Studios production, coproduced with Paradine Productions and White Horse Pictures. Using archive footage, each episode focuses on Frost’s interviews with one key personality, including his encounter with boxing legend Muhammad Ali. It was made in collaboration with Frost’s son, Wilfred, with contributors including Liam Neeson and Joanna Lumley.

Meanwhile, The Body Next Door (3×60’) is a true crime title produced by Raw (The Tinder Swindler). A murder mystery set in the Welsh Valleys, it centres on the discovery of a medical skeleton that turns out to be real.

Feature doc Doom Scroll: Andrew Tate & The Dark Side of the Internet (1×120’) is made by Sandpaper Films and details how the controversial social media personality rose to infamy.

Lastly, one-off film Adam Hills: Foot Fault (1×60’) is a Noah Media Group production. It follows the comedian as he promotes para-standing tennis – a sport for disabled athletes who don’t want to play in a wheelchair.

Poppy Dixon, Sky’s director of documentaries and factual, said: “These new commissions showcase the breadth of content we have on the Sky Documentaries channel.

“With exclusive archive, unprecedented access and a deep dive into the untold, we feel so privileged to be working with some of the best creatives in the industry, to bring these important and compelling stories to life.”
