The Man Who Lives With Monsters: Robert Ressler, Britain’s Worst Sleepwalker, My Kid Survived and House Bound have been acquired by Chello Zone’s real-life programming channel Zone Reality.

Licensed by Parthenon Entertainment, The Man Who Lives With Monsters: Robert Ressler and Britain’s Worst Sleepwalker, and Endemol Worldwide Distributions’ My Kid Survived and House Bound, will transmit across all EMEA feeds on Zone Reality in the autumn.

Using a former FBI agent’s private archives, The Man Who Lives With Monsters: Robert Ressler gives viewers access to Ressler’s most significant cases, including Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy.

Britain’s Worst Sleepwalker tells the story of 34-year-old James du Gard who, while asleep, has jumped through windows and been caught in the street naked. Presenter and fellow sleepwalker Jon Desborough spends a week with du Gard to figure out how his body goes for nighttime strolls while he is asleep.

Meanwhile, My Kid Survived features stories of innocent children left alone in a life or death situation, while House Bound features people with extreme disorders such as agoraphobia and hypochondria.

Sam Rowden, director of programming for Zone Reality, said: “These documentaries are incredible stories of survival, courage and dedication which showcase real-life at its most extraordinary.”
