Zodiak reels in Minnow for first-look

Zodiak Rights has inked a first-look deal with UK indie producer Minnow Films.

The distributor will sell its shows internationally, starting at MIPTV next month.

Minnow was founded in 2006 by filmmaker Morgan Matthews.

The first programmes to come under the deal from the Minnow Films include one-off doc Walking Wounded: Return to the Frontline, adult baby doc The 15 Stone Babies and the award-winning 7/7: One Day In London.

Zodiak Rights took on two Minnow Films documentaries at MIPCOM last year: Fatal Flight 447: Chaos in the Cockpit and America’s Animal Hoarder: Horror at the Zoo.

Fatal Flight 447 has been sold to broadcasters including Australia’s Nine Network, Denmark’s TV2 and Belgium’s VTM.
