Cineflix Rights has signed content deals with leading UK producers Spelthorne Community Television and Renegade Pictures, adding two acclaimed new Channel 4 primetime series to its factual slate.
Let’s Talk About Sex (3x60’, Spelthorne Community Television for Channel 4, UK) presents some of the most outrageous and unintentionally hilarious sex education videos to parents and kids to get an uncensored take on them. Using sex education videos both past and present, this informative and entertaining series uncovers what works and what doesn’t for a diverse group of families who share candid opinions and fascinating anecdotes—all while having a few laughs.
Extreme Tribe: The Last Pygmies (3x60’, Renegade Pictures for Channel 4, UK) provides a rare look into the lives of the remote Mbendjele tribe in the Republic of the Congo. Told from a uniquely female perspective, filmmaker Livia Simoka spends five months fully immersed in the daily lives of this Pygmy community of hunter-gatherers living for the most part harmoniously within the jungle, almost entirely cut off from the outside world. Over the months she learns the Mbendjele’s unique ways of surviving in the isolated rainforest and also discovers threats to their way of life.
Both series debuted to more than one million viewers when they launched on Channel 4 in the UK. Cineflix Rights has already made a first sale of Let’s Talk About Sex to Australia’s SBS Network.
Richard Life, Head of Acquisitions, Cineflix Rights said: “Cineflix Rights has been building up our roster of British producer partners, including those producing content for Channel 4 which is always very popular with international buyers, so it’s a real coup to sign up two such well-regarded indies as Spelthorne and Renegade. Let’s Talk About Sex is laugh out loud and intensely squirm-inducing television which will have families everywhere in stitches while making them think about how they broach the subject themselves. And in Extreme Tribe: The Last Pygmies, Livia provides audiences with a highly engaging new perspective of what life is like for a group of families whose traditional way of life is under threat. I’m really looking forward to bringing both of these exciting shows to the international market.”
