DRG has picked up Associated Producers’ Living in the Time of Jesus (pictured) and 1212 Productions’ My Mother Diana, the latter of which focuses on the impact of Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ divorce on Prince William.
The iconic events of the Christian Bible are explored in the 3 x 60 minute Living in the Time of Jesus. Hosted by history professor Arne Kislenko, the doc recreates Jesus’s days in detail and focuses on three characters whose lives intersected with Jesus.
The second acquired doc is a one-hour special on how Prince Charles and Diana’s marriage affected their eldest son, Prince William. My Mother Diana is an original commission by Channel 4′s sister network More4.
1212 Production, who made My Mother Diana, also produced The Real King’s Speech, a factual special inspired by the Oscar-winning fiction film The King’s Speech.
The one-hour special has become one of the UK’s most successful factual exports, distributed by DRG. It has sold to more than 43 territories worldwide, including Discovery (U.S.), National Geographic (Latin America), Bravo! (Canada), ABC (Australia), NRK (Norway) and TVE (Spain).
Diane Rankin, senior VP of acquisitions at DRG, said: “We’re delighted to be once again partnering with 1212 Productions and Associated Producers, two extremely talented and trusted teams of documentary makers. Living in the Time of Jesus and My Mother Diana bring a powerful new perspective on two of the world’s most iconic stories.”
