"The Animal Within"
Autentic Distribution has inked a pre-sales deal with German Free TV channel NTV for the upcoming Science series "The Animal Within" (6x45’), produced by Canadian production company Go Button Media, and the Sports & Adventures series "The Huntsman" (4x45’), produced by smac.
NTV, owned by Bertelsmann Media’s RTL Group, has acquired Free TV rights for German-speaking territories and will premiere them on German Free TV in 2021. The production of both series will be completed this year.
As both series are co-produced by in-house production label Autentic, Autentic Distribution holds worldwide distribution rights and will be launching the shows to market this fall at MIPCOM Online +.
“Our brand-new series 'The Animal Within' is a hidden gem in our new slate. It is a COVID-19 proof show, which looks under the hood of incredible creatures that have been perfected by nature over the time and shows what we can learn from them to make humankind better”, says Mirjam Strasser, Head of Sales & Acquisitions. “'The Huntsman' on the other hand is full of action and manpower. We follow the modern hunters of today into the woods and experience the craftsmanship of hunting up close. However, the series also focuses on sustainability. With their profession, hunters contribute to a sustainable world and we show you how. Both production companies have produced high-quality factual series that are enlightening, powerful, and entertaining.”
