Toronto, Canada, September 21, 2012 – (Virtual Press Office) -- Tricon Films & Television announces its slate for Mipcom 2012 featuring 6 new titles and over 35 new hours of scripted comedy, lifestyle, and factual content. New titles launching at Mipcom include:
Comedy Bang Bang (10x30'), hosted by Scott Aukerman (co-creator/director/producer, Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis) and musical cohort Reggie Watts (Conan), packs character cameos, sketches, and nonstop comedic absurdity with some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Seth Rogen (Knocked Up), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men).
Bunk! (10x30'), is an exciting new breed of "comedy game show" in which a trio of comedians compete in a series of bizarre challenges to win surreal prizes. Each week, contestants are armed with nothing more than their wits and fertile imaginations as they complete offbeat games and challenges to win a myriad of "non-charitable causes" such as the ability to travel back in time, having a priest supply an alibi, and trading lives with a baby, all under the watchful eye of host Kurt Braunohler.
I Didn't Do It (7x60'), is a factual series that exposes the untold story (and personal tragedy) of wrongful convictions, one gut-wrenching case at a time. Narrated by Chris Noth (The Good Wife, Sex and the City), I Didn't Do It looks beyond the investigations to reveal the harrowing personal stories and long-awaited redemptions of those brought down by an imperfect justice system.
Satan (feature length documentary) Satan explores the role of the Devil in the modern age. It will trace his transformation from fallen angel to demonic beast to charismatic charlatan, showing how popular culture (from Milton's Paradise Lost to The Exorcist to South Park) has influenced the public's perception of the Devil's presence on Earth. Featuring in-depth interviews with horror icons like John Carpenter, Linda Blair, Stephen King, Mike Mignola and Guillermo del Toro and musicians Bruce Dickinson, Jimmy Page, Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson.
Restaurant Takeover (26x60'), a lifestyle series with a fresh take on Food Network's popular Restaurant Makeover series, where two restaurant industry top guns help rescue a failing restaurant.
Birth of a Car (2x60'), a stylish and sophisticated, exciting new factual series that tells the stories of today's most advanced vehicles from concept to creation.
Ex-Wives of Rock (14x30'), a docu-series that chronicles the highs and lows of the glamorous lives of four L.A. women who have lead the sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll life and survived to reinvent themselves.
Love Trap (50x30'), now in its second season, this reality series gives someone a chance to tell an unsuspecting person that they have a secret crush while all caught on hidden cameras.
