France Télévisions Distribution reports that its upcoming doc The Kennedys: The End of Innocence was its most-screened program at this year’s MIPDoc. The 1 x 90 minute show portrays the Kennedy era through the eyes of the family’s children, as told by their English nanny 30 years later. Produced by Program33 and directed by Patrick Jeudy, the doc generated significant buzz from U.S. broadcasters in Cannes, according to FTD. Other titles generating interest included Mythical Beaches of the 60s: A Never Ending Summer (5 x 60 mins); Nile’s Sunken Treasures (bought by National Geographic for the U.S.); The Secrets of the Saqqara Treasury; Ramses II: The Great Journey; the third season of the Earth from Above series, the NHK copro World After Dinosaurs and another Program33 production, Declassified History of the French Secret Service.
