Biz booms with TV movies, docs, wildlife skeins

Studio Hamburg closed a slew of sales at Mip TV, including deals for nature programming, series and TV movies.

Danish pubcaster DR purchased three movies adapted from the works of German author Siegfried Lenz by pubcaster ARD — “Die Auflehnung,” “Das Feuerschiff” and “Der Mann im Strom” — as well as docudrama “Eichmanns Ende,” about the kidnap of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann by Israeli agents in Buenos Aires.

France’s M6 bought TV movies “Nicht Fuer Alles Geld der Welt” and “Ein Fall von Liebe: Saubermaenner.”

Swiss pubcaster SFTV picked up a wildlife and nature programming package produced by Studio Hamburg DocLights, and is in negotiations for German-Australian children’s series “Blue Water Hight” and “Emma’s Chatroom.”

Czech broadcaster Ceska TV also took a wildlife programming package, while TV Valenciana in Spain acquired the second season of “Wildlife Nannies.”

Studio Hamburg is negotiating with broadcasters in Russia and Lebanon for Eric Friedler’s doc “Aghet,” probing the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire.
