UK-based TCB Rights is taking 3x60mins doc series Planes That Changed the World to MIPCOM.
The show is for Smithsonian Channel and comes from the UK’s Arrow Media. TCB has international sales rights, and has already secured presales with Discovery Quest in the UK, RMC Decouverte in France, SBS Australia and N24 in Germany.
The show tells the story of three wel-known aircraft: the DC3, the SR71 Blackbird and the Airbus A380 Superjumbo.
“Planes That Changed the World follows in the jet stream of [previous Arrow/Smithsonian coproductions] Terror in the Skies and 747: The Jumbo Revolution, both of which have been great commercial successes for TCB,” said Paul Heaney, TCB’s founder and managing director.
Another Arrow Media coproduced show, which is it working up with Saloon Media, is crime doc series See No Evil. This will be in Cannes as part of Entertainment One’s slate.
