GRB sells wildlife & extreme nature programmes to broadcasters in Japan, China, France & Poland

MUMBAI: GRB Entertainment has announced wildlife and extreme nature program sales to broadcasters in Japan, China, France, and Poland.

Nippon Television Japan and Hubu Media China both picked up When Fish Attack, an in depth, analytical look at unexpected underwater attacks. Some of the seemingly innocuous ocean creatures can be as dangerous as the great white shark! Hear from victims and experts as they break down what happened.

Hubu also acquired When Animals Bite Back which features real-life encounters with captive and wild animals. A bull leaps into the spectator stands at a Spanish bull ring; a ‘gator handler’ nearly loses his hand to a hungry alligator; an escaped chimpanzee terrorizes a neighborhood and more.

AB Droit acquired three shows for its French and French-Speaking territories:

- Hurricane Hunters highlights the only organization that flies directly into the eyes of hurricanes and tropical storms. Running a 24 hour a day operation, these Air Force reserve specialists aim to protect civilians from nature’s havoc by analyzing and predicting the course of deadly storms.

- Great White Highway brings viewers to the central coast of California, home to some of the biggest Great White Sharks in the world… but only for part of the year. Teams of scientists have spent years tagging and tracking these sharks to find out why they come here, why they leave, and where they go when they do, but very little is known about what they do in the summer or where they mate and bear their young. Now, armed with new technologies, the team is hoping to wire the ocean and discover everything about these giants.

- Prehistoric Assassins explores ancient predators like the pterodactyl and the Anomalocaris (a carnivorous, 7-foot long prawn) and their deadly hunting tactics. See how they hunted, how their incredible predatory tools evolved, and how they ultimately disappeared.

Polsat in Poland bought Extreme Animal Obsessions which showcases people’s intense devotion to their favorite creatures. Whether these animal crazed individuals attempt to transform into their furry companion or prepare road kill for a stomach twisting dinner, they all share a unique obsession with escaping the human world and entering the animal kingdom.

“GRB Entertainment’s extensive catalogue holds some of the most provocative and extreme nature and wildlife series. With climate change being a strong issue affecting everyone around the world, nature programming has seen a resurgence recently and we are pleased to be able to offer many titles in this genre to our broadcasting partners,” said GRB Entertainment SVP of international distribution Michael Lolato.
