UK indie Zig Zag Productions is once again teaming up with frequent collaborator Barcroft Media to coproduce Unbelievable Truth (13 x 60-minutes), a series about some of the world’s most extraordinary people.

The multi-item format promises to look at some of the most incredible and fascinating true human stories from around the world. Each episode will have a mixture of “extraordinary, shocking and intriguing stories, taking viewers into unknown worlds and through powerful emotional experiences,” the producers promised.

Stories featured in the series will be sourced from Barcroft Media’s global network and will be of the calibre of previous Zig Zag/Barcroft collaborations, such as The Girl with Eight Limbs, Aged 8 and Wanting a Sex Change and The World’s Smallest Muscleman.

Zig Zag Productions CEO and executive chairman Danny Fenton said: “The documentaries we have made with our partners at Barcroft Media have already achieved great critical acclaim, won awards and been distributed worldwide. Unbelievable Truth is about casting the net far and wide to find a whole new range of incredible human stories that can be lightly formatted into a long-running series that will serve to feed the huge international appetite for this type of content.”

Barcroft Media owner Sam Barcroft added: “We’re pleased to be working with Zig Zag’s excellent team on this fresh approach to telling amazing stories.”
