Discovery U.S. has acquired “Apocalypse, World War One,” the latest opus of the blockbuster documentary franchise “Apocalypse,” from France Televisions Distribution.
Budgeted above five million Euros, the five-part docu series will air in 2014, to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of Wwi. It’s produced by Cc&C and features colorized archival footage, fifty-percent of which is exclusive. National Geographic Channels Intl. pre-bought global non-standard TV rights (excluding Canada, the U.S. and France) at last year’s Mipcom.
Deal is one of the flurry of sales inked by French pubcaster France Televisions at Mipcom, which wraps on Thursday.
German net Zdf picked up Patrick Jeudy’s “There is No Such Thing as a Happy Kennedy,” produced by Program 33; “Marilyn, The Last Sessions” and the two-parter Cosmic Shore co-produced by Japan’s Nhk Enterprises and France Televisions, among other docu titles.
