Warner Bros TV partners with Radio Karate to shop True Story at Cannes

True Story with Hamish & Andy is launching at MIPCOM 2017

Radio Karate and Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) are launching True Story with Hamish & Andy at the annual MIPCOM conference in Cannes next week.

The series was created and produced by Radio Karate’s Tim Bartley, Hamish Blake, Andy Lee and Ryan Shelton for the Nine Network.

Commenting on the acquisition of True Story internationally, Andrew Zein, SVP creative, format development and sales for WBITD said: “We’re thrilled that the team at Radio Karate have partnered with us to bring True Story With… to international buyers and commissioners. We’re confident that there are thousands of great stories out there and this format is a unique way of giving them a chance to shine.”

Hamish Blake and Andy Lee said of the deal: “We are stoked to be teaming up with Warner Bros on this project. We are well aware that Australia isn’t the only country with funny, true stories in it, so we cannot wait to see what everyday tales make it onto screens throughout the world. We are currently learning Spanish, French, German, Swedish, Italian, Polish, Danish and Greek so we can enjoy the episodes in those countries if it ends up getting made there.”
