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 the USA and the UK and globally on Netflix and Curiosity Stream. Our latest Netflix Original is The Road to Victory (launched on 22nd December 2021).
WMR has built a formidable team who have no equal in the quality of drama reconstruction they produce. We have our own proprietary CGI techniques which allow us to create a cinema look within a factual budget. Our The Lost Pirate Kingdom (which launched on Netflix on 15th March 2021) won the Broadcast Award for best visual effects in November 2021.
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 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 also currently available on Netflix. Other productions include Royals: Keeping the Crown (for Curiosity Stream), 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. So WMR also makes series for ZDF like Ancient Apocalypse, which premiered on ZDF Info on 26th December 2021.
