International distributor Cineflix has bolstered its slate with a number of acquisitions ahead of Realscreen West.

Travelogue series Chuck’s World (13 x 30 minutes, Trio Orange) follows celebrity chef and restaurateur Chuck Hughes as he visits far-flung destinations around the world to meet food enthusiasts, while Mountains and Life (6 x 60 minutes, Green Bay Media) explores mountainous landscapes such as the Himalayas, Andes and less familiar peaks in Africa and Asia, while profiling the communities that live there.

Cineflix also picked up the comedy special The Improv: 50 Years Behind the Brick Wall (1 x 60 minutes, Spotted Dog Entertainment), which finds comics such as Jerry Seinfeld and Sarah Silverman congregating inside one of America’s oldest comedy clubs.

A final acquisition is the feature-length Second World War doc Sniperwatch (1 x 90 minutes, Yap Films), on a real ‘Band of Brothers’ that travelled together during the war, battling German snipers.

The Cineflix Rights acquisitions team will be in attendance at Realscreen West, which kicks off in Santa Monica, California, tomorrow (June 8).
