 Prime Entertainment Group recently secured deals for various titles: “Hollywood on Set,” “The True Story of Angelina Jolie,” and “Hollywood’s Stories.” The Paris-based distribution company celebrates a licensing deal with NBCUniversal International Networks and Direct-To-Consumer for Studio Universal in Africa, a renewal with  major French network M6 GROUPE for the popular biographical documentary “The True Story of Angelina Jolie” (1x52)’ to air on channel Paris Premiere, and the renewal of its deal with ZDF info for Prime’s hit series “Hollywood’s Stories” (13x26’).

"Hollywood on Set" is an in-house and weekly-produced series that takes the audience behind the scenes and straight onto the set of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. The popular show will air on Studio Universal, home to Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters, in Africa in early 2023. “It is a true pleasure to reinforce our presence in Africa and to see our cinema-related series do so well on major channels such as Studio Universal,” Alexandra Marguerite, Head of Sales at Prime Entertainment Group, said.

"The True Story of Angelina Jolie,” chronicles the life of the Hollywood icon, accentuated through archival footage, unique interviews, and unseen segments of the icon’s rise to fame. With the help of experts and acquaintances, this documentary is an enlightening look at her philanthropy as well as the ups and downs that have marked her career and how she came to be one of the most acclaimed and beloved actresses of our time. This documentary has been an international success on multiple channels, such as  Germany’s ZDF, SKY New Zealand, and South Africa’s M-Net, among others.

Its creator, Paris Premiere (M6 Groupe) has previously collaborated with PRIME, securing major biographical documentaries such as “Drawing the Line: A Portrait of Keith Haring” (1x28’), “The Secret Album of Clint Eastwood” (1x70’), and their most recent deal of the award-winning cinematic documentary, “Monsters, The Enemy Within” (1 x 56’) that explores the lore, legends and production of Hollywood Horror, chilling costume design, and our top bone-chilling creatures. M6 GROUPE, also known as Metropole Television, is the most profitable private national French television channel and the third most watched television network in the French-speaking world, owned by RTL Groupe.  “It’s a great satisfaction to work with PARIS PREMIERE again, they have been great partners and we are glad that our expansive biopic selection is appealing to their audience,” Alexandra Marguerite, Head of Sales of Prime Entertainment Group, said. “Prime will continue supplying high-quality documentaries and profiles, which have always been at the core of our group’s DNA. Through this continuous goal, we have the opportunity to present our latest season of the successful celebrity series “Close Up” and our latest cinematic trilogy of Hollywood legends.”

Lastly, Prime’s deal with ZDF info is a continuation of a collaboration that developed documentaries as “The True Story of Madonna” (52’) and “The True Story of Angelina Jolie,” among others. “Hollywood’s Stories” unveils the best-kept secrets and delves into the glitz, glamour, and well-known scandals of the entertainment industry. Each 26-minute episode covers topics such as the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the #Metoo movement, mysterious celebrity deaths, dramatic meltdowns, and the glamourous lifestyles of the rich and famous. The series features archival footage, exclusive interviews, and re-enactments that will breathe new life into the best and worst scandals in cinema history.
