Sky Vision, the international distribution arm of BSkyB, has sold the Sir David Attenborough-hosted Sky1 series Micro Monsters to broadcasters in Europe and Asia.
The 4 x 60-minute natural history series examines the adaptability of insects and explores their behavior, as well as the environments they build and inhabit.
Since the series was launched at MIPTV in April, it has been acquired by RTL Germany, Discovery Asia, TVE Spain, NRK Norway, Viasat and SVT in Sweden, VRT Belgium, DR Denmark, RUV Iceland, and Kanal 7 in Turkey.
The series is available in 3D, but the distributor’s TV sales are for the 2D version of the show, a Sky Vision spokesperson told realscreen.
“This is the third series from Colossus Productions we have represented, following earlier sales success for Kingdom of Plants and Galapagos,” said Leona Connell, head of global sales at Sky Vision, in a statement. “We are privileged to showcase these critically acclaimed, high-end factual series, which always guarantee strong interest from our international clients.”
Micro Monsters was commissioned by Celia Taylor, Sky’s head of factual and features, and exec produced by Anthony Geffen, EP and CEO of Atlantic Productions.
