Deal involves 69 hours of factual fare to commercial broadcaster Mediaset, which will air on Italia 1 and upstart channel Italia 2 starting this month.

Titles covered by the agreement include ”Weird or What?” fronted by William Shatner, which attempts to find scientific explanations for mysteries and phenomena; ”Paradise Lost,” recounting stories of doomed travelers, and ”Murder She Solved: True Crime,” focusing on female cops involved in murder cases.
