CNN, EBS & Discovery buy factual programmes from Bomanbridge

MUMBAI: Bomanbridge Media, a Singapore-based content distribution and production agency , has announced sale of several significant factual programmes in the Asian region, including deals with Discovery Asia, EBS South Korea, and CNN Southeast Asia.

Discovery Asia acquired multiple titles including Hippo Supremacy, which documents a mother hippopotamus who risks her safety to protect her struggling baby from the danger-filled waters of the Luagwa river, and River Battlefront, where the hippopotamus and the Nile crocodile share a home in East Africa, fighting for their survival. Other wildlife titles acquired by Discovery Asia include Tanzania’s Best Kept Secrets, Crocs of Katuma, and Fawn Identity.

South Korea’s EBS acquired Strip the Cosmo, which uses stunning CGI animation to strip planets, moons, black holes, stars and galaxies - layer by layer - to solve key mysteries surrounding the origin and destiny of the universe, Messiah at the Foundling Hospital, one-hour drama documentary which recreates the first performance of Messiah at London's Foundling Hospital in 1750, Raccoons – The New European, Drain the Bermuda Triangle, and Drain the Titanic.

On top of Drain the Titanic, CNN Southeast Asia also took Cobra Mafia, Creative Killers, and People’s Health, a six-hour series that looks at how people in Thailand, China, United Kingdom, Brazil, Istanbul, and Turkey cope with some of the major health issues the world face today.

“Bomanbridge is the preeminent distributor in Asia of quality factual programming from around the globe. We represent first-rate production companies with award-winning documentaries and factual shows including gripping wildlife series; intriguing exploration and inspiring musical docs. Bomanbridge is also in a robust acquisition phase and look forward to acquiring even more premium factual programs for our library,” said Bomanbridge Media CEO Sonia Fleck.
