Woodcut International has secured sales in Asia in the run-up to the ATF (Asia TV Forum & Market) next month. TrueVisions (Thailand) has snapped up Season 1 of the factual series "A Royal Guide To…"(6x1 hrs) for its channel True Explore Life. Produced by Woodcut Media, the series looks at the numerous and somewhat little known protocols, etiquette and customs adhered to by the British Royal Family that also form the foundations of how to do absolutely everything as a royal.

Meanwhile PCCW Media (Hong Kong) took the award-winning doc "(K)nox: The Rob Knox Story" (1x1hr) for its VOD service NOW TV. The documentary explores how 18 year old actor Rob Knox was stabbed to death just days after filming his breakthrough role as Marcus Belby in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Beijing ATW Culture (China) picked up the filmed theatrical performance of "Wuthering Heights" (1x155’) for theatrical release and non-theatrical platforms. Following its 5-star world premiere, this production sees the return of Emma Rice’s sensational adaptation which transforms Emily Brontë’s masterpiece into a uniquely theatrical experience and intoxicating revenge tragedy for our time. "Wuthering Heights" is A National Theatre, Wise Children, Bristol Old Vic and York Theatre Royal co-production.

Pooja Nirmal Kant, Sales Agent for Asia, said: “We are pleased to announce these sales in advance of ATF, especially as they are censorship friendly, which is always a challenge for international distributors selling content across the region. Last year the ATF market was bustling, and we look forward to the same next month, especially as it’s a superb market to reach niche channels and more localised buyers.”

Koulla Anastasi, Managing Director, Woodcut International added: “We are delighted that Pooja has closed these deals and look forward to extending our reach of factual fare into more Asian territories over the coming months, as the market continues to grow and evolve.”
