Go Button Media is delighted to announce that Canada’s Super Channel has commissioned its new 6 x 60 history documentary series, Secret Nazi Expeditions, and that Cineflix Rights is onboard as its international distribution partner, with an initial focus on pre-sales.
Secret Nazi Expeditions reveals the shocking work of an elite team of scientists and scholars established by SS leader Heinrich Himmler. For over a decade, this secretive team scoured the globe, mounting expeditions to extreme and harsh locations in search of the origin of the Aryan race and seeking to collect ancient artefacts in the name of Hitler’s “thousand-year Reich”. It was believed some of these mystical relics would give the Nazis an edge in the war and enable them to rewrite history.
Across the series, we’ll see why a difficult expedition to the Himalayas fueled Nazi racial doctrine and learn how the discovery of bronze-age runes in northern Italy convinced the SS they had found evidence that Germanic peoples were behind great ancient empires. Amongst other things, the series also explores the Nazi obsession with the Holy Grail and the desperate search to find it, convinced that victory would be theirs if only they could secure this and other iconic relics.
Secret Nazi Expeditions, which is soon to begin production, is Go Button Media’s second Super Channel Fuse Original commission this year, following World War Two series Forgotten Frontlines (6 x 60), which has been co-commissioned by SBS Australia and Off The Fence.
