Woodcut Media is in production of the new 3-part history documentary series "World War II: Women on the Frontline" (3x1hr) that has already pre-sold to Channel 4 in the UK, and SBS (Australia). The series explores the daring and unknown histories of remarkable soldiers, pilots, and spies who fought, flew, and died in the Second World War. Defying expectations, overcoming prejudices, and often outperforming their counterparts, each episode sheds light on some of the most perilous, courageous, and unwritten stories of the women who led the charge.

"World War II: Women on the Frontline" is produced by Woodcut Media’s Jonathan Mayo as well as Kate Beal as executive producer, and directors are Rebecca Joyce and Imogen Walford. Worldwide sales are handled by Woodcut International who will be presenting the series to buyers for the first time at the upcoming MIPCOM market.

Polly Scates, Senior Acquisitions Manager, Channel 4 said: “I am very excited to be partnering with Woodcut on this refreshing and informative new series, telling the stories of these extraordinary women who are so often overlooked within history.”

Kate Beal, CEO and Co-Founder, Woodcut Media said: “We are proud of this series as it really provides a unique lens through which to view the Second World War. Rarely do we hear about the brave women who played a pivotal role on the frontline. Women jumped into cockpits, dropped bombs, broke codes, bravely fought, and risked their lives as did their male counterparts – and we want audiences worldwide to know about their amazing feats.”
