Hosted by reporter Mariana van Zeller, the 10x60mins series follows stories of people fighting for justice.
Injustice Files comes from Fusion’s in-house production team, which former CBS head of news’ investigative unit Keither Summa leads.
“Young people today are deeply engaged in stories that involve social justice,” said Summa. “Fusion’s in-depth look at how we treat, and sometimes mistreat, each other provokes important conversations around issues that are important to a young, diverse audience.”
Banijay International’s VP, global acquisitions, formats and programmes Fanny Baudry brokered the deal with Fusion’s VP and head of business development, Jonathan Stern.
“The Injustice Files is a fascinating, in-depth look at real-life stories that have grabbed the world’s attention, and sits perfectly within our portfolio of high quality factual entertainment, docu-soaps and fly-on-the-wall reality programming,” said Baudry.
Banijay International has been ramping up its hard-hitting factual slate, which includes I am Innocent, Police Ten 7, Outback ER and Descent from Disaster.
