Off the Fence (OTF) announces the launch of over 500 hours of Rainbow Media’s HD programs to the international market at this year’s MIPCOM. The catalog contains a range of programs in different genres such as arts and culture, adventure and travel. Some of Rainbow’s titles that OTF will debut at MIPCOM include Earthtripping, a 6×30-minute series that follows Survivor: Africa winner Ethan Zohn as he travels the world’s greatest cities while staying as green as possible; Magnificent Obsessions, which profiles people who have turned their interests into the passion that drives their lives and Nomads, a 60-minute documentary that explores the biggest ‘adrenaline junkie’ athletes from around the world. The deal between OTF and Rainbow follows OTF’s success selling Rainbow’s WEtv programming last year and OTF’s success distributing more than 500 hours of HD and online content at MIPTV 2009.
