UK: Cineflix Rights signed content deals with Spelthorne and Renegade

A content deal was signed by Cineflix Rights with the UK producers Spelthorne Community Television and Renegade Pictures, adding two Channel 4 primetime series to its factual slate.

Let’s Talk About Sex (3x’60, Spelthorne Community Television for Channel 4, UK) presents some unintentionally hilarious sex education videos to parents and kids to get an uncensored take on them. Using sex education videos both past and present, this informative and entertaining series uncovers what works and what doesn’t for a diverse group of families who share opinions and anecdotes.

Extreme Tribe: The Last Pygmies (3x'60, Renegade Pictures for Channel 4, UK) provides a look into the lives of the remote Mbendjele tribe in the Republic of the Congo. Told from a female perspective, filmmaker Livia Simoka spends five months immersed in the daily lives of this Pygmy community of hunter-gatherers living within the jungle, almost entirely cut off from the outside world.

Both series debuted to more than one million viewers when they launched on Channel 4 in the UK. Cineflix Rights has already made a first sale of Let’s Talk About Sex to Australia’s SBS Network.
