The agency will work closely with J.C. Mills, President and Head of Content at Cineflix Productions, who joined the company in 2020.

The signing comes less than a month after Gersh bolstered its nonfiction credentials after acquiring the alternative and digital departments of A3.

Cineflix is behind series such as Air Crash Investigation for National Geographic International and Smithsonian, which is now in its 24th season and American Pickers for History, which will be celebrating its 400th episode. Cineflix was also the original producer behind HGTV’s Property Brothers.

Its recent push into feature docs started with Desperate Souls, Dark City and the Midnight Cowboy, which screened at both the Venice and Telluride film festivals, and recent festival darling Summer Qamp, which premiered at TIFF.

It also produces series such as Discovery+’s Fight or Flight, and true crime event series The Torso Killer Confessions for A&E.

On the scripted side, it produces Hallmark Channel’s Undercover Holiday as well as Lifetime movies Miracle in Motor City with Motown legend Smokey Robinson and the upcoming Abducted Off the Street: The Carlesha Gaither Story.
