Cineflix Rights has revealed its slate of factual programming launching at Mipcom 2021. This year, the company has garnered a wide range of content covering numerous topics, from the greatest sports stars of the past 50 years to popular historical events, extraordinary engineering innovations, true crime, and classic car restorations in hopes of securing a record number of sales.“It’s great to be launching nine brand-new factual series covering multiple genres that we know our buyers are hungry for: true crime, history, lifestyle, science, and engineering," Cineflix Media CEO Tim Mutimer, said. "Representing content originally commissioned by PSBs, cable networks, and streamers in the UK, North America, and New Zealand, we see real potential for these new series to join our successful returners such as 'Mayday: Air Disaster,' 'Property Brothers,' and 'My Big Family Farm' as staples of our clients’ schedules.”

The titles include the three-part Kaufman Films series for ESPN in the US, "The Greatest of All Time with Photographer Walter Iooss," which showcase the greatest athletes noted within the last fifty years, as well as Chimp Productions and Kremplewood's "Richard Hammond’s Workshop," set to provide six episodes to Discovery+ in the UK and Eire in which a daredevil TV presenter and legendary car buff launches a high-end restoration shop.

"Voices from the Dead" by SandStone Global for Channel 5 in the UK, which follows Professor Bettany Hughes as she uses new technology while putting her investigative skills to the test to reveal intimate portraits of people and how they lived in Ancient Egypt and Pompeii, was also added to the catalog. Other projects scheduled to be presented include Go Button Media's "Secret Nazi Expeditions" for Super Channel in Canada, and "Smoke & Steel: Secrets of the Modern World" by Shot Entertainment for UKTV and Discovery Science in the US, which explores the extraordinary engineering innovations of the industrial revolution.

The 10-part, "Moving Houses" series made by Imagination Television for TVNZ follows daring Kiwis as they take on the ultimate reno recycling project: moving must-have homes to picture-perfect New Zealand setting, while "Expert Witness" by Rare TV for BBC1 in the UK celebrates the unsung courtroom heroes who helped solve some of the most complex crimes, using science and determination to uncover critical hidden clues. The titles will stand alongside "Ainsley's Good Mood Food" and "Smart Home Nation."
