The new UK-based prodco Burning Blue Media is heading to MIPCOM for the first time this October, after having made its first major commission for BBC backed by a plethora of international partners. Around the World in 90 Minutes is a 90-minute doc for BBC1, Planet Green and France 5 with funding from ITV Studios Global Entertainment which follows one orbit of the International Space Station around the earth. The doc will show what happens on earth in just 90 minutes, including how the world’s population can change, how much rain will fall and the number of meteorites that hit the earth. Burning Blue is based in Bath and was started by Nick Watts and Joseph Maxwell who have collectively worked on programs for C4, BBC, Five and Discovery in the past.
