UK indie 3DD has pre-sold its Hollywood-focused documentary series Stars of the Silver Screen – which is a coproduction with the UK’s BIO HD – to broadcasters including Viasat, Globosat, SBS Australia, TV Catalunya and BIO in Germany.

The 13 x 60-minute series looks at some of Hollywood’s most famous and beloved icons, starting with Marilyn Monroe (pictured above).

Filmed in London and New York, the show features clips from Monroe’s greatest movies, archive footage from her appearances at festivals and galas, and contributions from critics and writers.

3DD CEO Dominic Saville said: “Although this moving portrait of the film legend will be completed in time for the 50th anniversary of her death in August 2012, it focuses on Marilyn’s career, offering an intimate portrayal of her accomplishments as an actress.

“The series as a whole provides a very comprehensive and definitive compilation of Hollywood’s all-time movie greats.”

Further episodes of the series will feature Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, James Stewart, Bette Davis, Clark Gable, Katherine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Gene Kelly, Kirk Douglas, Sophia Loren and Marlon Brando.

3DD will be selling the title at MIPCOM. In addition, the producer-distributor will also offer A Day in the Life (6 x 30-minutes), the first episode of which features Samuel L Jackson; and The Movie Show, a movie talk show, further details of which will be unveiled in Cannes.
