ZDFE.factual, the documentary arm of German distributor ZDF Enterprises, has partnered with UK prodco Screen Glue on a development deal for the docuseries Size Matters. 

The series will investigate “why things are the size they are” – from insects to planets and everything between – while creating fictitious parallel worlds in which size can be altered. Following a cast of characters, the series will question what would happen if the sizes of these objects were changed.

The series has garnered interest from several networks and non-linear platforms, according to ZDF Enterprises.

“We feel we will be able to create an outstanding two-parter for broadcasters and networks on the East Coast and at the same time a long-running series for non-linear platforms on the West Coast,” said Ralf Rueckauer, VP ZDFE.factual at ZDF Enterprises, in a statement. “This hybrid way of creating programs is essential for us in order to meet the needs of both worlds – traditional free- and pay-TV and on-demand services.”

Jasper James, founder of Screen Glue (pictured), added: “We’re going to marry the revelation of the best documentaries, the breathtaking visual effects of the most innovative feature films and the quirky curiosity of the best video-bloggers to create a series that is solid science with a twinkle in the eye.”
