Passion reps The Weather Channel catalogue and has also shopped its 8x60mins series Tornado Alley to broadcasters including Discovery Asia, TV4 Sweden, TV2 Norway and UKTV.
Discovery Asia also picked up 13x60mins series Why Planes Crash and Nat Geo bought 3x60mins Building Invincible, about structures that have had extreme weather-proofing.
Emma Simpkins, Passion’s director of sales, said “Weather and popular science is hugely topical and in demand right now. There has been a move back to real events, real stories, real disasters and our The Weather Channel content is the perfect mix of science and dramatic real experiences to draw in a global audience.”
