German distributor ZDF Enterprises is launching an online screening portal to tie in with next month’s MIPDoc market in Cannes, where it will debut a number of doc series including Licence To Drill (pictured).
Registered users will be able to view trailers and full-length programs at zdf-enterprises.de once the portal launches next month.
The 6 x 45-minute series, which focuses on men drilling for gas in the Canadian arctic, is one series in a slate of new factual properties ZDF Enterprises has unveiled for the market. Other titles on offer include Repossessed! (10 x 50 minutes), a series looking at American repo men; and Hard Time (6 x 50 minutes), which looks at prisoners and guards at a maximum security prison.
Among the single docs the distributor is bringing to the market are Dawn Of The Ocean (1 x 90 minutes), which explores the evolution of the world’s seas and marine life; and Adventure Ocean Quest (5 x 52 minutes), which features freediver Frederic Buyle.
The distributor is also bringing 9/11: Science and Conspiracy (1 x 95 minutes) to the south of France. The doc is billed as being “provocative,” and ZDF is hoping the title can be a part of networks’ forthcoming 10th anniversary commemorations of the terror attacks upon the U.S.
