British distributor Espresso TV is rebranding as Espresso Media International and launching a production arm at MIPCOM.

Espresso Productions will focus on producing and coproducing documentaries, music and factual entertainment programming. Producers have inked a deal with a yet-to-be-named, top international music star and will announce details later in the fall.

David Hooper, the production division’s MD, called the move into production “a natural progression” for the company.

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old distributor’s MIPCOM slate will include the documentaries NASA’s 10 Greatest Achievements, When Africa Arose and Sexpionage, as well as the 4K music magazine series Jazz @ Metropolis and the BBC4 doc 100 Seconds to Beat the World: the David Rudisha Story (pictured), which follows the 800 meter-runner over a 10-year period.
