Saloon Media Announces
A New Production Commissioned by HISTORY® Canada, With Presales To
HISTORY UK and India Exploring Miraculous Phenomena Around The World
Saloon Media, the prolific new fact based indie production company, announced today the production of Miracles Decoded.
Miracles Decoded travels to four continents, meeting people who claim to have experienced miraculous events: a leading surgeon believes she visited heaven and has proof of the afterlife; a mechanic crushed under a car and near death sees angels who save him; a woman says a Voodoo priest lifted an evil hex and saved her life.
A series for both people of faith and die-hard skeptics, Miracles Decoded tells two sides of each story, presenting firsthand accounts of the individuals who experienced these miracles, and hearing from cultural experts and scientists who have their own explanations for the phenomena.
“Miracles Decoded examines the ways people around the world have experienced their faith throughout the ages and into the present,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media. “Saloon Media has done a phenomenal job of bringing these stories to life and creating a well-rounded series that presents different perspectives on these fascinating events.”
“Gripping, emotional and dramatic, these stories explore the fascinating relationship between science and faith. We are fortunate to have HISTORY Canada, HISTORY UK, HISTORY India and A+E Networks as partners to produce this fantastic series,” said Michael Kot, Executive Producer, Saloon Media.
“When we first saw Milagros Decodificados from HISTORY Latin America, it was clear that the topic of the series was evergreen and would have international appeal,” said Sally Habbershaw, Vice President, International Programming, Production & Operations, A+E Networks. “We are very pleased about the collaboration between HISTORY in Canada, the UK and India and Saloon Media for this English-language production.”
Commissioned by HISTORY Canada, and sold into HISTORY UK and HISTORY India, Miracles Decoded will also air on HISTORY channels worldwide. Miracles Decoded is a format of Milagros Decodificados from HISTORY in Latin America. A+E Networks is handling international distribution of the series and the format.
Miracles Decoded premieres in Canada on HISTORY in 2014.
