Leading production finance broker and distribution agent Silverlining Rights has unveiled its MIPCOM 2022 slate of new titles spanning genres including true crime and investigations, real lives, luxury access, modern history and competition formats, as the company celebrates its 10th anniversary.
HIGHCLERE (5×60’, Brinkworth Television for Channel 4, UK). The fictional Crawley family who inhabit Downton Abbey are known and loved all around the world through one of television’s most successful global brands. But what about their real-life counterparts?

MURDER IN THE FAMILY (3X60’, Knickerbockerglory TV for ITV, UK) is a new premium prime-time true crime series from the producers of one of Netflix’s most watched documentaries – American Murder: The Family Next Door.

CAUSE OF DEATH (4X60’, Candour Productions for Channel 5, UK) is a ground-breaking television series in which a body in a mortuary becomes the key to an unfolding detective story to discover who the body belongs to, how they died and whether there was foul play. With 360 access to the coroner (and his team), the police, the mortuary and the autopsies, and using pioneering scientific detective tools this is death investigated in a way we’ve never seen before.
SECRET WORLD OF SNACKS (6X60, 72 Films for Channel 4, UK) tells the fascinating stories of fierce battles between Britain’s biggest brands and the rivalries that have driven them. From Wall’s and Häagen-Dazs, McDonalds and Burger King to Kellogg’s and Weetabix, the industry titans behind these multi-million-pound businesses reveal what it takes to stay one step ahead and beat the competition.
