The outlets also landed The Royal Documentaries (ITN Productions), a package of 20 one-off docs about the Royal Family, including Harry and Meghan: Two Troubled Years (pictured). The royals also found a home with Sky Brazil.

AMC Networks International Latin America, meanwhile, nabbed Canadian broadcaster Love Nature’s celebrated 4K originals library for Mexico, South and Central America.

Finally, Brazil’s Globosat grabbed exclusive PayTV and SVOD rights for Coral Triangle doc series Into the Blue (8 x 60 minutes, Zona Mixta).
