BERLIN – International distribution and media agency Quintus Media has concluded a deal with AMC Networks International Central and Northern Europe (AMCNI CNE) for several high end documentaries.


The package deal with AMCNI CNE for its Spektrum channel in Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia covers science, cultural and factual programming.


The deal includes sales for The Most Dangerous Ways to School’s three seasons (5×60’), Planet School (8×30’), Mega Transports (6×60’) and Ultimate Vehicles (6 x 60’), produced by independent German TV production company Maximus Film GmbH.


Facing the most extreme conditions – marching, climbing or swimming, the children in The Most Dangerous Ways to School fear neither brutal cold nor dangerous terrain.  They face wild animals, climb up mountainous paths; fight their way through icy wastelands or under the merciless sun of the desert.  They persevere through all this with only one goal in sight: a better life.  These children have the most spectacular and most dangerous ways to school in the world!


The series captivates through a unique mixture of stunning scenery, enormous struggle and danger coupled with childlike curiosity, happiness and inquisitiveness.  Everyday routine meets the spectacular taking viewers on an adventure to some almost impossible to reach destinations where the students navigate the narrow path between survival and the thirst for knowledge.


AMCNI CNE has also acquired Spacetime (6×60’) and Remeasuring the World (1×60’) produced by Berlin based WeltN24 GmbH.


Commenting on the deal, Gerrit Kemming, Managing Director of Quintus Media said: “We always strive to deliver high quality content with mass appeal and are delighted to work with AMCNI CNE.  This deal is a further testament to the solid relationship that the two companies have built over the past few years.”
