MUMBAI: Sky UK, Nippon Television & Globosat have recently bought sports, music, etc documentaries from GRB Entertainment.

Globosat Brazil renewed Remembering Whitney, a documentary featuring legendary singer Whitney Houston, just in time to celebrate the icon?s 9 August birthday. This breathtaking one-hour special celebrates the legacy of the six-time Grammy winner, featuring ?never-before-seen footage? of Whitney, including interviews with the pop icon, exclusive concerts, private home videos, and candid insights from her family, including her daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Nippon Television Network in Japan acquired Michael Sam, a 65-minute doc spotlighting the life of Michael Sam, the first openly gay U.S. football player in the NFL. Cameras follow Sam along his brave journey - from a football player at the University of Missouri to the biggest professional sports league in America as he works to earn a spot on a NFL team.

Sky UK acquired two docs: Confessions of a Superhero follows the lives of three mortal men and one woman who make their living working as superhero characters on the sidewalks of the infamous Hollywood Boulevard. This deeply personal view into the daily routines of these characters reveal their hardships, and triumphs, while they pursue and achieve their own kind of fame; and The Mona Lisa Myth, narrated by Morgan Freeman, is a lavish period docu-drama that takes viewers from Leonardo Da Vinci?s happy sojourn in the duchy of Milan to his struggling years in Florence, through the controversy surrounding his famous painting The Mona Lisa and finally, his retirement at the French royal court in Amboise.

?GRB is well-known around the globe for its wide-ranging portfolio of factual programs and we are fortunate to also represent many top-notch documentaries. From a sports? figure with a ground-breaking story to a great singer and her tragic life to a group of people chasing a Hollywood dream to the great artist Da Vinci, GRB has programs that transcend borders and language barriers,? said GRB Entertainment SVP - international distribution Michael Lolato.
