California-based distributor Solid Entertainment is seeing multiple sales of its factual series U.S. Navy SEALs following the death of Osama bin Laden (pictured) at the hands of U.S. special forces.

Three German broadcasters – ZDF, Sat.1 and ProSieben – have all licensed footage from the Emmy-winning, four-episode series, while TV2 Denmark has acquired two of the episodes for Danish transmission.

The series originally aired on Discovery Channel, and saw producer Gordon Forbes spend six years filming the Navy SEALs, depicting desert training exercises, live combat footage and interviews.

The news comes after Discovery earlier this week unveiled further details for Killing Bin Laden, the quick turnaround special it has commissioned from Peacock Productions.
