Douseries Secrets of the Superfactories from sales house Passion Distribution and factual indie Pioneer Productions, both based in London, is slated to premiere on Discovery’s Science Channel in the U.S. and Channel 4-owned More4 in the UK.

Secrets of the Superfactories offers an inside look into the “hidden world” of green, hyper-efficient and flexible factories in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, pinpointing breakthroughs in manufacturing and technological advances such as 3D printing, artificial intelligence, wearable devices and virtual and augmented reality.

Tinopolis Group-owned Passion Distribution commissioned its sister company, Pioneer Productions, to create the series.

Other confirmed international partners include WELTN24 in Germany and BBC Earth channels in Poland, Africa, Asia, CEE and the Nordics.

Nick Tanner, director of sales and co-productions at Passion Distribution, executive produced the series.

“There is great demand out there for quality factual programming,” Tanner said in a statement. “Pioneer Productions has incredible pedigree in the specialist factual space and so it is a natural evolution of that our two companies work closely. Secrets of the Superfactories is an ambitious, global and entertaining show that resolutely hits the engineering and institutional access sweet spot.”
