Fremantle closes deals for 130 territories for the TV project that traces the history of 400 years of human trafficking.
Samuel L. Jackson’s new television documentary series Enslaved: The Lost History of the Transatlantic Slave Trade will launch worldwide after broadcasters in some 130 territories snatched up the six-part series on the history of human trafficking.
Jackson hosts and executive produced the series, which sees him, alongside historians Afua Hirsch and Simcha Jacobovici, travel across continents to retrace the path of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Jacobovici served as series director.
The series premiered Sept.14 on Epix in the U.S.
Fremantle, which is handling international sales on the series, closed deals with France’s TF1 Group for its Histoire TV channel, with the History network in Germany, with Spain’s Moviestar+ and RTVE, and with National Geographic for Latin America, among other deals. M-Net will air Enslaved in Africa on its network, with Cable & Wireless taking rights in Caribbean territories.
