Discovery A-Pac, Hubu & Looking Glass acquire lifestyle, sports & wildlife programmes from GRB

GRB Entertainment has announced sales to Discovery Asia-Pacific, Hubu Media, and Looking Glass International for a variety of titles spanning lifestyle, wildlife, and sports.

Discovery Asia-Pacific acquired Hayden Quinn for Central and South Asia, India territory, and New Zealand — an extraordinary culinary adventure through South Africa with the titular Hayden Quinn. Watch as the celebrity cook and Masterchef Australia contestant learns the culture, meets locals, and cooks the best local and sustainable cuisine South Africa has to offer.

Hubu Media (China) picked up fascinating shark doc Great White Highway — the central coast of California is home to some of the biggest Great White Sharks in the world, but only for part of the year. Scientists have spent years tagging and tracking these sharks to find out why they come here, why they leave, and where they go once they leave their temporary home.

Looking Glass International acquired for China the World Cup-centric documentary All Eyes On Brazil — relive the 2014 FIFA World Cup which took the entire globe by storm. This unique film documents one of the greatest sports events of all time in a nation that lives, eats, and breathes football. See how The World Cup dramatically affected cities all around Brazil and relive the historic event.

Looking Glass also acquired automotive competition series World Desert Championship — the world’s most premiere off-road racing competition series bids man and machine against some of the toughest and unforgiving deserts in the world. From the San Felipe Challenge of Champions to the grueling all out endurance race of the Baja 1000, these drivers must not just beat their fellow competitors but must also take on mother nature and survive to see the checkered flag.

“Asia and Pacific Rim remain a tremendously strong and growing market for GRB and we are thrilled that our broadcast partners in the region have acquired programming that will undoubtedly appeal to their viewers. We are looking forward to meeting with both our existing partners and new clients at ATF,” said GRB vice president – international acquisitions and sales Liz Levenson.
