It will shop series including 10x30mins sketch comedy series Comedy Bang Bang, hosted by Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis co-creator Scott Aukerman and comedy gameshow Bunk! to international broadcasters at MIPCOM.

Other shows on the company’s forthcoming Cannes slate include 7x1hour factual series I Didn’t Do It, narrated by Chris Noth, feature length documentary Satan, 26x30mins lifestyle series Restaurant Takeover and 2x1hr factual series Birth of a Car.

Returning series also include 50x30mins reality series Love Trap and 14x30mins docu-series Ex-Wives of Rock.
