Distributor DRG has acquired primetime documentary specials BP: Eye of the Storm and The Tea Party and the American Right for BBC Television and Haiti Miracle Baby for Channel 4, and has pre-sold the films in Canada and Europe ahead of their debut at MIPCOM next month. The one-hour BP: Eye of the Storm was produced by BBC Productions for BBC and investigates how the PR battle between oil giant BP and the U.S. government in the wake of the Gulf oil spill disaster fits into a wider political context. Renegade Pictures’ one-hour BBC Two special The Tea Party and the American Right examines how the Tea Party movement has impacted Republican party policies. UK indie prodco Roast Beef’s Channel 4 doc Haiti Miracle Baby follows the story of a baby pulled from the rubble of the Haitian earthquake.
