Ovation buys Will.i.am doc from Endemol Shine

Arts and culture net Ovation has bought On the Road with Will.i.am, a behind the scenes concert doc from Endemol Shine International.

The Update Productions-produced one-off follows the eponymous star as he kicks of his first ever world tour.

Also from ESI, US cable net Ovation has picked up Reinventing the Royals, a two-part doc about the British royal family and their decades long battle with the press.

The Genie Pictures produced two parter, which has interviews with ex-royal advisors, journalists and experts, will run on Ovation next January.

“Ovation is always looking to support and highlight visionary artists, and Will.i.am is no exception.  On the Road reveals how innovative and dedicated Will.i.am is on stage and off,” stated Scott Woodward, executive VP, programming and production, Ovation.

He added: “With Reinventing the Royals, we are satisfying American viewers’ interest in the culture of the British monarchy. This is an intriguing short series we think will have high appeal for our audience.”
