2 December 2016


ETV Africa has acquired rights for four seasons of GRB Entertainment’s factual thriller ‘On the Case’. The series explores murder mysteries through in-depth interviews with those closest to the case and examines the forensic evidence that helped to unravel the crimes. Riveting interviews with witnesses and suspects reveal the raw emotions left behind from personal tragedies and the motives of those who committed the terrible crimes. ‘On The Case’ has been sold in over 130 countries. GRB Entertainment also sold ‘Hostage: Do or Die’ to Japan’s Collaboration Inc and and Sky UK. The true crime series tackles the most extreme, frightening circumstances involving merciless criminals taking innocent victims hostage.

For the first time, the hostages and negotiators who survived nearly fatal ordeals recount the horrifying moments that scarred their lives forever. GRB Entertainment SVP of international distribution Michael Lolato said, “GRB has a vast library of intense, true crime series that broadcasters around the world continue to show unwavering interest in. ‘On the Case’ and ‘Hostage: Do or Die’ have been extremely popular and are sure to engage audiences in Africa, Japan and the UK.” ‘Intervention’, GRB’s groundbreaking A&E series (200+ episodes), received two Emmy® Award nominations in 2016, a Critics’ Choice Award nomination in 2016, an Emmy® Award nomination in 2015, and an Emmy Award win in 2009 from the Television Academy of Arts & Sciences for ‘Outstanding Reality Program’.
