GRB Entertainment sells docu and crime series to African broadcasters

MNET has acquired several docu-series including two seasons of the ‘Braxton Family Values’ and ‘­Cleveland Hustles’. ‘Braxton Family Values’ features Grammy-winning artist Toni Braxton and her four sisters along with their headstrong mother for an inside look at their lives. ‘Cleveland Hustles’ follows basketball legend LeBron James and friend Maverick Carter as they give four aspiring local entrepreneurs the chance to realise their dreams while also revitalising neighbourhoods in their hometown of Cleveland. Another series, ‘Flex and Shanice’, takes a look at the lives of 90s pop singer Shanice and her husband, actor Flex Alexander and their extended family all living together under one roof as they strive to get back on their feet financially. Raising Whitley follows comedian Kym Whitley and her hilarious group of friends – whom she calls “The Village” – as they attempt to do something none of them have ever done before: raise a baby…together. MNET also picked up ‘Black In America’, a collection of eight documentaries exploring race and identity for African Americans as it pertains to education, business, community life, and even families. ETV also acquired two seasons of ‘Braxton Family Values’ along with successful spin-off series ‘Tamar & Vince’ following rising musical superstar Tamar Braxton and her music-mogul husband, Vince Herbert, as they balance their careers with their personal lives. ETV took the full series of long-running investigative crime series ‘On The Case’, exploring murder mysteries through in-depth interviews with witnesses and suspects while examining the forensic evidence that helped to unravel the mystery. Said GRB Entertainment International Distribution SVP Michael Lolato, “As the television market in Africa continues to grow, GRB is thrilled to be working with MNET and ETV. Our documentaries, entertaining reality series and real-life investigative crime series have captured audiences around the world, and we are very excited to bring these titles to Africa.”
