April 05, 2019

Cineflix Rights, the UK’s largest independent TV content distributor, has acquired the blue-chip feature length documentary JFK Jr. & Carolyn Bessette: A Camelot Wedding (working title), from US producer Critical Content.

JFK Jr. & Carolyn Bessette: A Camelot Wedding (1×120, Critical Content for TLC US) begins with the top secret, 1996 wedding ceremony of America’s Prince Charming, John F. Kennedy Jr., to the love of his life, Carolyn Bessette. For the first time, 20 years after the couple lost their lives in a tragic plane crash, the documentary takes viewers inside their fairytale wedding with never-before-seen footage. 

The special celebrates JFK Jr. and Carolyn’s incredible love for one another, capturing intimate moments of their clandestine wedding weekend on Cumberland Island, Georgia, including an insider’s look at everything from the joyful rehearsal dinner to the magical ceremony and intimate reception. With new commentary from celebrity wedding guests, friends, and family, this remarkable documentary special offers a fresh look at the lives of one of America’s most famous, and most famously private, couples.

Richard Life, Head of Acquisitions, Cineflix Rights said: “JFK Jr. & Carolyn Bessette: A Camelot Wedding provides viewers with a unique insight into the private lives of two scions of one of the most famous dynasties of modern times. With exclusive access to previously unseen footage, together with first-hand anecdotes from friends and family, Critical Content has created exactly the type of blue-chip history show that our international buyers demand, and we’re looking forward to rolling it out globally at MIPTV 2019.”

The deal to acquire JFK Jr. & Carolyn Bessette: A Camelot Wedding (wt) was brokered by Giuliana Benvenuto, Manager, Acquisitions, North America.
