"Code 1: Minute by Minute"
Fred Media has secured its first international deals for "Code 1: Minute by Minute" (8x60) documentary produced for Seven Network in Australia. The series has now been acquired by Warner Bros. Discovery in the UK, AMC Networks International for Spain and Portugal, SBS in Belgium and TVNZ.
Karen Connell, Fred Media’s senior sales manager for UK & Western Europe, was responsible for the UK, Spain/Portugal and Belgian deals. She comments: “We are thrilled that 'Code 1: Minute by Minutehas' got off to such a great start in the international market. While it focuses on very specific Australian news events of recent years, the personal stories are universal, totally absorbing and will resonate with viewers everywhere. WTFN’s format can cleverly deconstruct any event with a big impact and lasting consequences and provides a fascinating examination of just how much fate can play a part in anyone’s day.”
Produced by WTFN, and with a second series already in production for delivery in Spring 2023, "Code 1: Minute by Minute" breaks down the hours, minutes, and seconds of the biggest and most tragic recent news events to impact Australia and profiles the people from all walks of life who will forever be connected, just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
With each episode meticulously researched and dedicated to a different event, the programmes break down in forensic detail exactly how these people came to cross paths. For many, it was a combination of sliding door moments and fateful decisions that set them on a tragic path. Some became survivors, some became victims and others were accidental heroes. Most of their stories have never been told…until now.
