MIPCOM BRIEFS DAY 2: Discovery To Sell Prince of Wales Docu

Discovery Enterprises International has taken world sales on the Prince of Wales-narrated eco-docu “Harmony: A New Way of Looking At Our World,” which world-preemed at Sundance London in 2012.

Produced by Julie Bergman and Stuart Sender, and directed by Sender, “Harmony” chronicles the Prince of Wales’ efforts over the past three decades to tackle the global environmental crisis.

Feature-length docu addressing a wide range of ecological issues including wind power, the destruction of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia, Canada, the benefits of organic farming, and the impact of globalisation on parts of rural India, also includes footage of Al Gore being interviewed by Prince Charles on climate change in 1988.

Discovery is distributing all rights to the two-hour “Harmony” docu globally, excluding German-speaking territories. It has already aired in the U.S. on NBC.

Tricon To Distribute AMC’s “The Divide” Internationally

AMC Studios and Tricon Films & Television have inked an agreement for Tricon to internationally distribute “The Divide,” the new scripted drama series from “Behind the Candelabra” screenwriter Richard LaGravenese, which will bow on WE tv in the U.S. in 2014.

Sundance Channel Global will carry “The Divide” in some territories.

“The Divide,” co-created by LaGravenese and Tony Goldwyn, centers on a case worker tasked with delving into the case of a death-row inmate she believes was wrongly convicted of the heinous murder of a family.

Marin Ireland will co-star in “The Divide” with Damon Gupton. AMC Studios is producing the skein which marks the first scripted series for WE TV. LaGravenese, Goldwyn and John Tinker are exec producing.

CBS To Adapt Israel’s “Little Mom.” Warner Bros. To Produce U.S.Pilot

CBS has picked up the format for Israeli prime time comedy “Little Mom” from Dori Media for a U.S. pilot adaptation to be produced by Warner Bros Entertainment.

The show is about young womanhood after kids and the world of thirtysomething women who “say goodbye to mini dresses and thongs and welcome sweatpants and rice cakes,” as the Dori Media catalogue puts it.

“Little Mom” is produced in Israel by Yoav Gross Productions for Channel 10 where it has proved rather popular. A second series is in the works locally.

Greg Berlanti, whose credits include “Arrow” and “Brothers and Sisters,” will produce the U.S. version, written by Rob Bergins.

Arrow Media’s “Terror in The Skies” series, which uses user-generated content to tell tales of near air-disasters, has been licensed by TCB Media Rights to National Geographic Channels, Channel 7 in Australia and to Sky TV in New Zealand.

“Terror in The Skies” airs in the U.S. on the Smithsonian Channel in a non-hosted version, and on Channel 4 in the U.K. in a version hosted by aeronautical engineer Professor Brendan Walker.
