ITV Studios Global Entertainment has announced it will be bringing more than 100 hours of new doc programming to MIPTV, an increased portfolio of more than 80%. According to Gary McDonagh, acquisitions manager at ITV Studios Global Entertainment, the increased documentary slate is the result of a surge in demand from global buyers. Premiering at MIPTV are the 21 x 1-hour docuseries Police Women, commissioned by TLC, and Breakout, an 8 x 1-hour ‘real life Prison Break‘, produced by Raw TV and Cream. ITV Studios has pre-sold Breakout to Australia’s SEVEN Network. Additionally, ITV Studios has announced the launch of new seasons of Zig Zag Productions’ The Truth Behind and Darlow Smithson Productions’ I Shouldn’t Be Alive.
