Independent producer-distributor Power has sold two of its wildlife doc series to Russia’s Video Production LLC.

The sale includes the 13-part NHU Africa series Wild Walk, which focuses on the fight for survival of some of the most exotic animals in South Africa.

Each episode sees conservation journalist Swati Thiyagarjan examine the different controversial conservation issues faced in South Africa.

The deal also includes the three-part documentary series Chameleons of the World (pictured above), which follows the lives of Chameleon lizards across the globe. The series uses high definition technology recording and x-ray cameras.

Power will be selling the titles at next month’s MIPCOM market in Cannes, alongside Breaker Morant: The Retrial, a 2 x 60-minutes drama documentary series; and The Great Penguin Rescue, a 6 x 30-minutes series which features wildlife presenter and conservationist Michaela Strachan.

Georgina McNeilly, Power’s VP of international sales, said: “It’s a pleasure to be forming new relationships in the Russian market and we look forward to doing more business in the region with Power’s ever-expanding catalog.”
