Target Entertainment and Back2back Productions are coproducing two docs dealing with the Duchess of Cambridge and her headline-grabbing sister: Kate and the Real Housewives of Anglesey and In Search of Pippa Middleton.

Target holds international rights to the one-hour documentaries, with  In Search of Pippa Middleton already sold to the UK’s Bio channel.

The Pippa Middleton fast-turnaround doc looks at Kate Middleton’s younger sister, who became the fascination of the world after her sibling’s Royal Wedding with Prince William. In Search of Pippa Middleton aims to discover as much as possible about Middleton.

Kate and The Real Housewives of Anglesey is a documentary on the people of Isle and their thoughts on the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge living in their small town.

Alison Rayson, CEO at Target, said: “We are hugely excited to be working with Back2Back again. David Notman-Watts’ Pippa and Kate Middleton documentaries delve into the lives of the most talked about sisters in the world today. The appetite to learn more about their lives from a global audience is insatiable and therefore it was a very easy decision in this instance to both act as coproducer and distributor.”

David Notman-Watt, executive producer at Back2back, added: “In In Search of Pippa Middleton… we will find out who ‘P-Middy’ is and how she is handling life in the glare of public adoration. Kate and The Real Housewives of Anglesey, a companion piece, is a humorous and light-hearted look at the wives of Anglesey who are now neighbors to the future Queen of England.”
