Beyond Distribution has taken international rights to Manufactured, a factual series that tells the story of iconic products.
The show is made by Toronto-based indie Castlewood for Discovery Canada. Items covered in the show range from the Leatherman multi-tool to the Zippo lighter and Stetson hat, with each episode following the conception, history and manufacture of three different products.
Beyond also represents another product-based show from Castlewood, Design DNA.
Yvonne Body, head of acquisitions from Beyond Distribution, said: “From our very successful sales of Castlewood’s Design DNA we know that audiences worldwide have an insatiable desire to see how well-known objects are made. Manufactured shows the whole process from design to end of the assembly line. It’s fast paced, entertaining and informative.”
