“Colossal Machines”


Autentic Distribution has inked sales for programmes of its fall and winter slate, which was first launched at Mipcom 2021. National Geographic has pre-bought "Colossal Machines" (6x45’), the six-part series that reveals mechanical secrets that not only made them work, but also changed the world in a big way.

"Colossal Machines" is produced by Go Button Media and Autentic’s own production unit. The Science series will be available on National Geographic worldwide, except German-speaking territories and the USA. In the German-speaking territories, the Science series will be available on SPIEGEL Geschichte and ServusTV.

France’s RMC Découverte has bought both seasons of the factual entertainment series "Stone Men" (12x45’) as well as Season two of "What Went Wrong" (6x52’). "Stone Men" follows the 'Men of Stone' managing three different marble quarries in the Apuan Alps in Italy. The series is produced by Italian prodco GiUMa Produzioni for Discovery Italy. On the other hand, the coproduction of Millstream Films and Autentic’s production unit "What Went Wrong" re-visits catastrophes that changed the lives of thousands of people forever.
