Cineflix Rights is partnering with Canada’s Cream Productions on the new series “I Got Lucky,” following a multi-territory pre-sale deal with Discovery for discovery+. The agreement includes discovery+ channels across the UK, Germany, Iberia, the Nordics, Italy, Benelux, Poland, and Latin America. Cineflix Rights is distributing the show in all other territories, including the United States.
From freak accidents and explosions to extreme stunts gone awry, “I Got Lucky” (14x30’) chronicles spectacular close calls and explains how survivors managed to walk away. Featuring near-death footage, riveting first-hand accounts, and an eclectic cast of experts, the series is a death-defying deep dive into the science of how people escape alive from the most extraordinary situations.
“We are thrilled to have negotiated this pre-sale with Discovery, which helped to secure a greenlight for Cream’s series. This latest deal demonstrates the success of our strategy of building a ‘pre-sale and greenlight’ slate from our producer partners. ‘I Got Lucky’ follows on from recent successes including McAvoy Media’s ‘Inside Taronga Zoo,’ now into its second season, and Law&Crime Productions’ ‘Killer Cases,’ as we continue to explore similar deals,” said Richard Life, Head of Acquisitions at Cineflix Rights.
Kate Harrison Karman, President of Cream Productions, added: “We have a longstanding relationship with Cineflix and are always impressed by their distribution strategy. This project is a perfect example of our creative partnership as it went from greenlight to delivery during Covid”.
