GRB toasts Disney in Cannes

The forthcoming 50th anniversary of the death of Walt Disney has led US sales house GRB Entertainment to add a documentary about the film producer’s life to its slate.

Walt: The Man Behind The Myth (1×90′) is the official biography of Walt Disney, co-founder of The Walt Disney Company, who died in 1966 aged 65.

The doc, which was sanctioned by The Walt Disney Family Foundation, is presented by Diane Disney Miller and narrated by Dick Van Dyke. First released in 2001, it features exclusive footage and over 50 interviews with celebrities, directors and animators.

GRB is also bringing a range of true crime programming to Mipcom later this month. Titles include Occult Crimes, which takes a look inside the minds of unpredictable killers, and Until Proven Innocent: The Hannah Overton Story, which tells the true story of the death of a four-year-old boy from Texas who died mysteriously of salt poisoning.

GRB has also added a number of CNN documentaries fronted by Soledad O’Brien to its library, including Babies Behind Bars, Black & Blue, Black In America and Latino in America.
