Demand for football-related factual content is high in Latin America and Europe, where the sport has enjoyed an enthusiastic following for years. Additionally, GRB Entertainment’s Melanie Torres, director of international sales, notes that documentary content about soccer such as All Eyes on Brazil also does well in territories like Africa. “There are always buyers looking for sports programming, especially surrounding big events like the World Cup in Russia,” and All Eyes on Brazil is unique in that it takes a look not only at a country that loves football but also at the economic impact on the community when the World Cup came to Brazil in 2014.
GRB Entertainment has signed agreements for several of its documentary titles with partners around the world, including in Germany, Japan and Australia.
Walt: The Man Behind the Myth has been picked up by OTE in Greece. In Germany, Confessions of a Superhero went to Docs de Cologne.
GRB’s newest documentary Beyond Boundaries: The Harvey Weinstein Scandal has gone to TV4 in Sweden, Tohokushinsha in Japan and Discovery in Italy. In addition, SBS Broadcasting in Australia snapped up Meet the Hitlers and Until Proven Innocent: The Hannah Overton Story.
“GRB is pleased to bring these quality documentaries worldwide and our global broadcast partners will be sure to enjoy success with these documentaries,” said Marielle Zuccarelli, the chief operating officer at GRB Entertainment.
