UK-based Connected Pictures has been commissioned by Sky to produce a doc special on young daredevils for Sky 1 HD. The World’s Youngest Daredevils(w/t) will see British musician and presenter Myleene Klass travel the globe meeting children with unusual talents. In her first authored film, Klass will visit children who are acclaimed in their home countries for their skills, including a 10-year-old cage fighter, a baby bullfighter and the world’s youngest lion tamer. The documentary will go beyond looking at the children’s shocking professions to examine the attitudes toward childhood in each of the different cultures profiled. This is Connected Pictures’ first commission for Sky 1 HD.
