Zodiak Rights has signed a first-look development deal with London-based factual and doc producer Minnow Films.

The deal gives the international distributor, which recently inked first-look deals with Blast! Films and Firecracker Films, the rights for the British indie’s formats and finished shows.

The first programs to come under the deal include the war documentary Walking the Wounded: Return to the Frontline (1 x 60 minutes, pictured); adult baby documentary The 15 Stone Babies (1 x 60 minutes); and 7/7: One Day In London (1 x 90 minutes), a BBC2 doc that won the 2012 RTS Award for Best Single Documentary; as well as I Took My Baby’s Life (1 x 60 minutes), Our Crime (1 x 60 minutes), and The Queen’s Hidden Cousins (1 x 60 minutes).

New films including Dogging Tales (1 x 60 minutes), Prison Dads (1 x 60 minutes), and Show Dogs: The Road to Crufts (1 x 60 minutes) will also fall under the deal.

“We have had a close relationship with Zodiak Rights since the inception of Minnow, and are now delighted to be working with them exclusively as we look to raise our profile in the international market,” said Clare Voyce, Minnow’s head of production, in a statement.

Zodiak will launch the slate at the MIPTV content market in Cannes, France next month.
