Deadline Hot Ones: My King Charles

Deadline, Max Goldbart 17th April 2023

Deadline Hot Ones: My King Charles

Distributor: Silverlining Rights

Network: Paramount+ U.S. & others

Episodes: 1 x 120 / 2 x 60

The new King’s Coronation is fast approaching so Mip TV is a perfect time for distributor Silverlining to seek more partners for the My King Charles doc. The show, which is being packaged as a two-hour feature or as two one-hour episodes, already counts Paramount+ U.S. and a string of global networks amongst its pre-buyers but there is still plenty of sales opportunity, and a UK network hasn’t come out the woodwork as of yet. Helmed by Diana: The Truth Behind the Interview indie Blink Films, My King Charles features a host of exclusive world-first interviews from former girlfriends, schoolfriends and relatives about the King’s early years. With interest in Charles having never been greater, especially given his high profile representation in The Crown, My King Charles takes viewers from his playboy twenties through to his troubled marriage with Princess Diana and more recent scandals. There are a fair few royal docs out there but this one gets to the heart of one of the world’s most powerful monarchs, and it couldn’t be being shopped at a more fortuitous time.
