“Terrorism,” a three-part documentary produced by Daniel Leconte (“Carlos”), is luring buyers at the TVFI Rendez-Vous in Biarritz.
Currently shooting, the $1.2 million doc, directed by Michael Prazan, uses interviews with experts, archive material and exclusive footage to examine the basis of terrorism and orgs that promote it.
Skedded for a spring delivery, it has been pre-bought for Gaul by pubcaster France 2, Israel (Channel 1), Ireland (TJ4) and Finland (YLE).
Leconte’s Paris-based Doc en Stock is also producing “The United States of Obama,” a road trip across the U.S. in which Gallic thesps Frank Guerin and Emmanuel Leconte collect people’s impressions of Barack Obama’s presidency a few month before the mid-term elections.
Franco-German net Arte has pre-bought the docu and will air it on Oct. 26.
Meanwhile, Doc en Stock has inked a flurry of catalog sales with Al-Jazeera. The Qatar-based network picked up Isabelle Vigouroux’s “My Bank and Me,” centering on relationships between bankers during the recession, and Antoine Vitkine’s “God Saves the City,” about London traders, as well as science-themed “My Genes Speak for Me,” among others.
Leconte is wrapping up production on “Clearstream,” a three-part docu that has been pre-bought by Canal Plus. The program probes political corruption and kickback scandals within Gaul’s highest political circles.
