Passion has Brits Battling Isis for MIPCOM

Frontline-FightingPassion Distribution has picked up two more docs – Terror in Paris and Frontline Fighting: The Brits Battling Isis – from UK indie Amos Pictures and will launch them at MIPCOM.

Terror in Paris follows on from Amos’s Terror in Mumbai and the 1x60mins film is billed as the definitive doc about the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris.

It was originally made for premium cable net HBO and features interviews with hostages, police and eye witnesses.

Frontline Fighting: The Brits Battling Isis was commissioned by Channel 4 in the UK and follows unpaid volunteers who take up arms with Kurdish fighters to battle Islamic State.

The Amos shows are part of Passion’s factual line-up for the market. Other new show include child abduction doc Taken, high class call girl show Escorts and From Russia with Cash, following the influx of Russian money into the UK.
