World Media Rights
Founded by Alan Griffiths in May 2007, World Media Rights has been at the forefront of making box set television series for fourteen years. It’s been a successful model – our series now show on cable TV in 55 countries worldwide and globally on Netflix. Our latest Netflix Original is The Lost Pirate Kingdom (launching 15th March 2021).
WMR has built a formidable team who have no equal in the quality of drama reconstruction they produce. With over 400 hours of programming and 38 series under our belt, we have a strong track record of producing television series to budget and on time. We also have our own proprietary CGI techniques which allow us to create a cinema look within a factual budget.
We are specialists in international co-production, bolting together deals with as many as five financial partners. Our BAFTA-nominated series World War Two in HD Colour and Hitler’s Circle of Evil are currently available on Netflix. Other productions include The Mafia’s Greatest Hits, Black Ops, Myth Hunters and The Real Story of… made for US channels like Discovery and Reelz Networks.
In July 2017 ZDF Enterprises of Germany bought a third of WMR. Our relationship with ZDFE enables us to sell into the international television market with even greater vigour.
