All3Media International has signed an exclusive first-look deal with UK factual firm Roast Beef Productions.
The distributor will partner with Roast Beef on its factual slate, including the upcoming documentary Spacey Unmasked, which presents a forensic look at Kevin Spacey’s meteoric rise to stardom and his subsequent legal battle in the London courts.
The deal comes after All3Media International handled global distribution for Roast Beef’s documentary Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?, a three-part series tracing Maxwell’s trajectory from a privileged childhood in Oxford, to the elite worlds of London and New York, to her recent trial and conviction. The series was sold across Europe, Latin America, Australia and Asia and North America.
Roast Beef Productions is headed up by Oscar-nominated producer Mike Lerner, who co-founded the firm alongside former Channel 4 head of news and current affairs Dorothy Byrne.
Rachel Job, SVP of non-scripted at All3Media International, said: “Mike Lerner, Dorothy Byrne and their brilliant team are incredible filmmakers, with unmatched expertise and authority in the premium factual space, and an uncanny ability to seek out important stories that is second to none. This expansion of our partnership is a really exciting proposition, and we are privileged to support them in growing their quality development slate.”
