Off Earth looks at the efforts being made to promote commercial spaceflight

German broadcasters Deutsche Welle, Spiegel TV and Welt have picked up a slate of factual content from indie UK distributor Espresso Media.

Deustche Welle has licensed Pave the Road (1×52’). Executive produced by Richard J Lewis (Westworld), the documentary follows filmmaker Kelly Mason’s mission to solve the environmental crises of plastic waste and road pollution in Costa Rica.

Meanwhile, Off Earth (1×52’) examines the new industrial frontier in space, from Elon Musk and Richard Branson’s commercial flights to manufacturing, using interviews, CGI and live-action demos.

Spiegel TV will take the German premiere of History’s Greatest Aircraft (7×45’). Funded by A+E UK and CEEMEA, this seven-part series examines some of the greatest contributions to modern warfare, capturing and celebrating some of the biggest icons in aircraft history.

Finally, Espresso has re-licensed space documentary The Saturn V Story (1×52’) to Welt. The film follows the story of the rocket used in the Moon landings, one of the most powerful machines ever built, and the challenges NASA faced in making it fly.
