Netflix, Channel 5 buy Ice-T MMA doc

Netflix and the UK’s Channel 5 are among buyers of Enter the Jungle, a mixed-martial arts documentary narrated by rapper and actor Ice-T.

The doc, from JungleGhetto Productions, will be available to Netflix subs in Latin America. It has also sold to Tracer Sports in France and sub-Saharan Africa and Garage Entertainment in Australia, New Zealand and Asia (excluding Japan).

In the UK, the show will air on Spike, which Channel 5 parent Viacom International Media Networks operates.

The doc follows Brazilian Jiu Jitsu master Wallid Ismail, who launched what is now a major Latin American MMA league, Jungle Fight, in 2003.

London-based Park Entertainment distributes the documentary internationally.
