UK distributor MercuryMedia is set to license The Four Year Plan, The Flaw, and more titles to Netflix in the U.S., UK and the Nordics.
In all, 16 documentary titles have been licensed from Mercury’s catalog to Netflix to stream in those three territories.
Titles which are available now include Adhoc Films’ The Four Year Plan, a fly on the wall doc focusing on the Queens Park Rangers Football Club; Studio Lambert’s The Flaw (pictured, above), on the underlying causes of the financial crash; and Cat Hollow Films’ Windfall, on the dark side of wind energy development.
“Following a chance meeting with Ted Sarandos, it became my ambition to make Mercury’s titles available to Netflix subscribers,” said Mercury chief executive Tim Sparke. “The team at Netflix are easy to work with and are changing the way films are seen. All of us at Mercury are really proud to have secured this significant license.”
