Indigo scores with Oz factual content sales
Editor | 05-08-2013
Foxtel and SBS are among a number of Australian broadcasters who have licensed factual content from London-based distributor Indigo Film and Television.
Formed in 1998, Indigo Film and Television has made its reputation developing an international distribution and co-production business of films, drama series, documentaries, entertainment series and children's programming.
In the first of the deals, Foxtel picked up the factual entertainment series Secret Museums (12 x 30'). Described by Time Out Magazine as an "engaging tribute to some genuine London oddities," the series follows Professor Ronald Hutton on an exploration of the curious and the bizarre objects within Britain's 'secret' museums.
For its part, SBS, Australia has bought both Literary Landscapes (6 x 30') and Portrait of a City (6 x 30'). The former takes viewers on a tour of the locations that inspired and informed some of our legendary authors, while Portrait of a City guides viewers through the secrets of the past, delights of the present and hopes for the future of six of Europe's most beautiful locations.
Commenting on the deals, Robert Basset, Indigo Film and Television's sales manager, said: "I am happy to have closed these deals and look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with Australian broadcasters."
