Sydney-headquartered Beyond Distribution is bringing two recent non-fiction projects from Vancouver-based Great Pacific Media to MIPCOM.

Highway Thru Hell (pictured), a Discovery Canada commission, follows the Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue company as it braves extreme conditions on the Coquihalla Highway in British Columbia to clean up accidents involving potentially dangerous cargo.

The Mistress, meanwhile, was originally produced for Canadian lifestyle net Slice and features author and self-proclaimed former mistress Sarah Symonds, who doles out advice to mistresses looking for ways out of their affairs.

“Beyond is thrilled to be working with Great Pacific Media for the first time and to welcome such first rate shows to our catalog,” said Fiona Crago, general manager of Beyond Distribution.
