Pan-African broadcaster M-Net is to be an exhibitor at MIPTV for the first time, bringing a catalog that includes Great Africans and Cooking with Siba (pictured) to the south of France.

Great Africans is a five-part 52-minute series on Africa’s leaders, including Nelson Mandela, Dr. Wangari Maathai and the late Emporer Haile Selassie, shedding light on their lives and work. The documentary series is an M-Net Production.

Also on offer is Cooking with Siba, a 39-part, 24-minute cookery series from Homebrew Films. South African food editor Siba Mtongwana cooks up recipes in every episode, alongside a celebrity guest.

Another highlight is the 13-part, 44-minute Crimes Uncovered, a docu-drama series profiling South African crimes that resulted in the successful capture and prosecution of the perpetrators.

Mike Dearham, head of sales and library at M-Net, said: “M-Net’s presence at MIPTV this year marks an important step in the company’s dedication to the further development and growth of the African production industry. M-Net’s catalog features a strong selection of new content that truly showcase the talents and diversity of African producers and reflect this thriving industry.”
