Samuel L. Jackson’s new TV documentary series Enslaved: The Lost History Of The Transatlantic Slave Trade has landed a new global distribution deal.
Jackson hosts and executive produced the series, which sees him, alongside historians Afua Hirsch and Simcha Jacobovici, travel across continents to retrace the path of the transatlantic slave trade.
It premiered on Epix in the U.S. on September 14, 2020, and now Fremantle bosses, who are handling international sales on the series, have closed a number of global deals to take the show to 130 territories worldwide.
Ahead of securing deals in mainland Europe, South America, and Africa, Fremantle chiefs previously closed a deal with British network BBC Two for Enslaved, which will air a revised four-part version of the series.
“For me, this is much more than a TV series,” the actor previously explained of the show. “For me, Enslaved is an attempt to give a voice to the millions whose voices were silenced.”
