Germany’s Quintus Media has picked up a raft of programming for its YouTube channel Free Documentary from ZDF Enterprises (ZDFE)-owned Off The Fence (OTF).
The package includes more than 40 hours of factual programming including OTF Productions’ Supercars: The Million Pound Motors (1 x 60 minutes), Forever Young (1 x 60 minutes) from Tell Tale Productions Inc, and Mindful Media’s Are You Racist? (1 x 60 minutes).
Joined Up Films’s My Mum Talks To Aliens (1 x 60 minutes), Lifers: Behind Bars (2 x 60 minutes) from Firecrest Films Ltd and Chain Gang Girls (pictured; 2 x 60 minutes) by Hoff Productions have also been acquired.
Gerrit Kemming, founder of Quintus, said: “We are not in the position to co-fund projects yet, but we are definitely starting to become a lucrative second and third-window exploitation alternative for producers and distributors.”
