UK production financing broker and distributor Silverlining Rights will be shopping programming spanning true crime, history, travel, science and reality at Mipcom later this month, including a show about identity fraud.
Hunting the Catfish Crime Gang (1×60′) is made by Strident Productions for BBC Three and iPlayer in the UK and explores what can happen when someone steals your face, your name and even your puppy pictures from Instagram and starts using them to scam people.

Described as a revelatory landmark documentary, it sees Philippa Langley and Rob Rinder team up to investigate the disappearance of two princes, Edward and Richard, in 1483.
Wonders of The Human Body with Michael Mosley (3×60′), meanwhile, is made by Storyboard Studios for Channel 5 in the UK and sets out to decode what makes our bodies work and what’s really happening on the inside.
