Distributor PBS International has sold 90-minute Frontline doc Secrets of the Vatican (pictured) to Australia’s SBS, Poland’s TVN and Portugal’s TVI.

The Quicksilver Media-produced doc, directed by Antony Thomas, uses undercover footage and interviews with Vatican insiders to explore the scandals of Benedict’s papacy, such as the clergy sex abuse crisis, money laundering, Vatican Bank corruption and Vatileaks — the release of documents suggesting cronyism, power struggles, and blackmail allegations within the Holy See.

“Antony Thomas and [executive producer] Eamonn Mathews have created an incredible piece of investigative journalism that brings to light many details about the Vatican of which the public has been largely unaware,” said Tom Koch, VP of PBS International, in a statement. “We expect this title to be in high demand when we bring it to MIPTV.”
