Content Television, the distributor formerly known as Fireworks International, has concluded a deal with Japanese indie China Stories to securing the worldwide distribution rights, excluding China and Japan, for factual series World Heritage of China.
The HD series is produced by China Stories with China Central Television (CCTV), the Government Network Television organisation, and China’s Oriental Media.
The show aims to highlight the many diverse aspects of China, from its ancient history through to modern day, and was filmed over the course of eight years with access to many of the country’s restricted sites of natural and historic interest.
Kentaro Tsujita, president of China Stories, said: “We have spent a great deal of time and care creating the definitive account of the wonders of China and wanted to ensure that the global distribution of our special series was in safe hands.”
Greg Phillips, president of Content Television and Content Digital, added: “This is a truly fascinating look at China’s spectacular history, traditions, people and places that were once such a secret to the rest of the world. I am certain there will be strong international interest in this groundbreaking series.”
