KEW MEDIA GROUP MIGRATES FRANTIC FILMS’ LIBRARY OF 450 HOURS ONTO KEW’S DISTRIBUTION PLATFORM

Leading global distributor KEW MEDIA GROUP (“KEW”) has migrated the library of award-winning producer Frantic Films onto KEW’s platform, and will begin representing Frantic’s portfolio of multi-genre programming at MIP-TV 2018.

The deal will see KEW MEDIA GROUP’s distribution arm taking over international sales on more than 450 hours of content, including brand new true crime series In Plain Sight, which KEW will debut to the global market in Cannes this week. A riveting whodunit documentary series, In Plain Sight (52 x half hour) reveals disturbing real-life cases of murder where the culprit featured on TV news reports, was interviewed by the media, posted in social media or newspaper reports, or otherwise brazenly showed their face while all the time they had blood on their hands.

Further Frantic Films’ catalogue content now available from KEW includes long-running lifestyle series Til Debt Do Us Part for Slice Network and Global, Guinea Pig for Discovery, hit series Pitchin’ In for Food Network, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival for CBC Television and Buy It, Fix It, Sell It for HGTV.

Led by CEO and Executive Producer Jamie Brown, Frantic Films has a strong reputation for creating globally-relevant content across the lifestyle, factual, reality, sports, comedy and drama genres. Based in Toronto and Winnipeg, Frantic Films is part of the KEW MEDIA GROUP of production companies, following KEW’s acquisition of Frantic in February 2017.

Jamie Brown commented, “KEW’s track record in maximising the individual potential of each and every title across multiple channels and platforms worldwide is very impressive. Being part of the KEW group has enabled us to greatly expand our global ambitions.”

Greg Phillips, President of Distribution at KEW MEDIA GROUP, added, “We’re very pleased to be working with Jamie and the team at Frantic Films. This will enable us to deliver an impressive array of new and existing high-quality content to our global clients. Frantic Films’ multi-genre portfolio of award-winning programming has already proved to be very successful globally and we’re looking forward to further maximising its huge potential in the international market.”
