Little Dot Studios acquires 500+ hours of content from Abacus

February 24, 2022

Digital content agency and media network, Little Dot Studios (an All3Media company), has acquired over 500 hours of programming from Abacus Media Rights for its digital network of over 30 channels.

The package will add over 100 hours to Real Stories’ offering, Little Dot Studios’ home of quality documentaries and real-life stories, including BAFTA award winning Nick Broomfield’s full back catalogue featuring titles such as critically acclaimed Soldier Girl and Aileen: Life & Death of a Serial Killer.

Caitlin Meek-O’Connor, Director of Programming & Acquisitions, Little Dot Studios said: “We are thrilled to work with Abacus Media Rights to license a large package of content across our 30 channels. We’re particularly excited about the outstanding documentaries for Real Stories, the Nick Broomfield back catalogue, the theatrical docs from Gravitas and the high quality films from Quiver and look forward to continuing this growth of premium acquired content across our full channel portfolio.”
Jonathan Ford, Managing Director, Abacus Media Rights, added: “Little Dot Studios provides a great home for this factual content. We’re extremely pleased to be working together.”

This acquisition forms part of Little Dot Studios’ strategy to continue to grow its existing catalogue, currently consisting of over 6000 titles, with more quality scripted and unscripted content. Real Stories also recently acquired Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney’s series Rolling Stone: Stories From The Edge and worked with Oscar-winning documentary director, Orlando von Einsiedel, to bring his first scripted film, Into Dust, to a global audience. These titles join other classic Oscar, Emmy, BAFTA and Peabody-winning documentaries on the Real Stories channel, which has recently surpassed 5 million subscribers, including films by award-winning production companies such as Kartemquin Films and True Vision Productions.
