Canada-based aviation SVOD documentary channel AeroCinema is expanding its original slate of programming.

The service, which launched in 2016, has greenlit a roster of eight one-hour documentary programs.

AeroCinema has an existing library of 400 original titles, with new titles including What Went Wrong with the Fat Man Mission (1 x 50) which looks into the second atomic bomb dropped in WWII; A Man Called Kammler (1 x 50) about the disappearance of a notorious commander of the SS; The Saga of Teddy Petters (1 x 50) examines the conflicting accounts of the untimely end of the Canberra aircraft, and The Wall of Fire (1 x 50) looks at historians’ theories that the origins of the Cold War began in Canada.

AeroCinema is also looking to commission third-party productions. Internationally, AeroCinema has teamed with France’s Aerostar TV to exchange content.

“Original content is key, and we expect to double our production over the next two years both with our own team and by partnering with like-minded Canadian and international co-production partners,” said AeroCinema CEO Philip Osborn, in a statement.
