DocuBay, the international documentary membership VoD service by IN10 Media Network, has announced the acquisition of multiple titles from US-based global commercial distribution platform 1091.
The deal includes stories on cultural icons such as John Lennon, and controversial Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, both of which are included in DocuBay’s newest ‘bay’ called CrimeBay, focusing on the popular true crime genre.
Other notable films acquired from 1091 include Diana: The Royal Truth – the story of Diana Princess of Wales through the eyes of Paul Burrell, former servant of the British Royal Household; and Janapar: Love on a Bike – an adventure-love story from BAFTA-nominated director James Newton that follows a recent university grad who embarks on a transcontinental journey on a bicycle and takes an unforeseen detour.
Adita Jain, Head of Acquisition & Content at DocuBay, stated: “We’re so pleased to partner with 1091, whose exceptional library is right in line with DocuBay’s diverse lineup of films. With fresh and engaging stories in every genre, including true crime in our latest offering – CrimeBay, the catalogue we’ve curated is truly global home for the best documentary features.”
