MIPCOM HOT PICK
It is fair to say Bahraini television documentaries are not ten a penny, and also fair that even fewer of those make it to the international market. Deals in the Desert is one series that breaks the mold.
The 13x30mins series comes from JEO Productions, whose CEO, Joseph Tito, is described by DCD Rights head of sales Rick Barker as “a great producer with great access” to Gulf region talent. JEO has been on UK-based DCD’s radar since the distributor narrowly missed out on a previous series from the prodco in 2009.
