The Sales Pitch for the New M&M Show
Men & Motors, the seminal TV show will be celebrating its 21st birthday next year. The show that launched the career of Richard Hammond is back with a brand new TV show and format. 2017 will see this iconic brand launch a youth orientated entertainment show with cars, games, gadgets and music targeted at an audience aged 18 to 34.
From the Director of “Big Brother”, “Love Island” and “I’m a Celeb…” the presenting team, fronted by Shane Lynch (Boyzone) and Torie Campbell (One Second in F1) will play outrageous car games, demystify the latest tech, create romance and heartache in a car dating game, whilst taking no prisoners out on the road as they test what’s 'in’ or ‘out’. If you cross “Top Gear”, “Robot Wars”, “The Gadget Show” and “Take Me Out”, you still will not have scratched the surface. Our own in-house Physicist makes Vorderman look like a dumb-ass and our version of “Four Poofs and a Piano”, ‘Bloxed Beats’ serve up the cool urban musical intros. Stunt driver Mauro Calo delivers the on and off road action, as well as pizza. With a heritage of over 3000 shows of archive content spanning the first twenty years as broadcast on Granada/ITV, this is a new entertainment show centred around its brand, cars, carnage, technology and even love, all delivered from our mobile studio rig, that will be located wherever the action is.
One Media iP Group Plc is pleased to announce it has completed the filming of a video pilot for a new Men & Motors series to be pitched to all major broadcasters both in the UK and on the international broadcast market.
The 22-minute pilot is being edited at Pinewood Studio. Filming for the pilot has taken place over the summer at well-known British locations with an exciting climax filmed at Brand Hatch. The show is hosted by Boyzone’s Shane Lynch and Mercedes’s corporate and CNBS’s FI presenter Torie Campbell. The format of the new show is targeted at ‘late teens to thirty cools’.
The new format, which will be a first for a motoring show, features music, in-car technology, car tests, a dating game, a destruction game, teen sport challenges, virtual car reality and high-octane fun. The supporting presenters feature Bloxed Beats, a ‘beat box’ singing combo, a well-known film stunt driver and our very own Phd physicist for the technical analysis on in car development and virtual gaming challenges.
The show will not go head-to-head with current motoring shows but will create a new motoring entertainment genre. Directed by Danny Tate (Big Brother) and hosted on the Monster Energy drinks mobile rig the new Men & Motors show will be in a class all of its own. Pitching to broadcasters will start in September 2016 and the format will be further pitched at MipCom in Cannes, France in October 2016 for international licensing opportunities.
Michael Infante CEO & Chairman and said:-
“We have tested the brand on YouTube and have been delighted at the level of interest in seeing the brand being re-launched. We intend to pitch to broadcast partners and will confirm a production company to deliver the show once a new broadcast platform has been established. Having been involved in the making of the pilot I am excited at the enthusiasm and energy that the newly formatted show will demonstrate. Shane & Torie and their co-hosts, have a TV broadcast chemistry and professionalism that really makes this a whole new motoring TV format. It’s a blast. We have thrown away the rulebook and rewritten the way that our intended target audience will reconnect with cars, trains, planes, boats and high-tech ‘stuff’. A boy’s toys special that girls will love. We have a horde of games and the latest in-car and gaming technology
One Media iP Group Plc is pleased to announce that it has entered into an exclusive long-term digital exploitation license agreement with HiBrow Productions TV & music.
HiBrow Productions was founded in 2008 by the London based Scottish film director Don Boyd, who gathered a wide and eclectic range of prestigious professionals from the international arts industries, the HiBrow ‘Curators’ whose remit was to create high quality arts content exclusively for its website www.hibrow.tv. The company’s experienced film-making teams have produced over 200 hours of original High Definition digital video content featuring numerous internationally acclaimed artists such as Joanna Lumley, Simon Callow, Brian Cox, Gary Kemp, Mike Leigh, Danny Boyle, Boris Johnson, Darcy Bussell, Phil Davies, Sebastian Foulkes, John Le Carre, Philip Pullman, Rupert Everett to name just a few with content spanning genres and specialties from across the arts spectrum, authors, actors, dancers choreographers, conductors, musicians, directors and designers all feature in this best of breed collection. It has enjoyed successful associations and partnerships with several major institutions including the BBC and Sky Arts. In November 2013, HiBrow was awarded a significant grant by the Arts Council England to support its 2014/16 production programme. An award that clearly recognised the significance of HiBrow’s contribution to the art world through the content it was creating.
The deal with One Media will ensure this relatively unexposed and unexploited content will now be made available to larger audiences via its digital audio and video routes to market which include YouTube, Amazon and its 600 digital stores such as iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and Google Play. Exact release plans are still to be announced but along side broadcast opportunities, fans can look forward to exploring ‘The HiBrow Music Sessions’ and ‘The HiBrow Spokenword Collections’ on consumer sites.
Michael Infante commenting on the deal said, “The HiBrow catalogue is a varied collection of content ranging from the Edinburgh Festival, the Quadrophenia Reunion to large orchestral works both classical and light. It features 'close up' interviews with the great and the good of the Art World, to leading composers in music and authors of great literary works. It gets behind the scenes of fashion and broadcast, making this collection the most amazing insight to the 'Arts' available today. Contemporary in his approach, Don Boyd has been the architect to an amazing evolving catalogue of film that drills down deeply under the surface of the Arts. Establishing a market for these masterpieces is both a privilege and an honour.”
Don Boyd, HiBrow's Artistic Director, commented: “One Media’s talented team are proving that intelligent exploitation and marketing of digital content via the internet can broaden audiences and provide revenues in a very competitive arena dominated by vast conglomerates with massive resources. I am delighted to be working with kindred spirits who share my passionate belief that there are significant audiences for arts programming globally. I am confident that One Media will help HiBrow reach out to fans globally as HiBrow contines on its quest to serve a public hungry for previously inaccessible high quality cultural experiences.”
Michael Infante, Chairman and CEO, commented: "The half year point is a barometer for companies for the climate ahead. Our long-term view is that of a continued repositioning of the Group's content in the changing digital marketplace and one of fresh initiatives that bring new areas of monetisation to the Company. Our year-end report of 31st October 2015 detailed our repositioning program as we weather the shift in the digital stores (eg. iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and Deezer) changing pattern of exploitation and monetisation of music, from the downloading model to that of streaming. In addition, we manage the digital stores changes in content and genres in which many of them wish to specialise. Six months on, I believe that the seismic change will most affect us this year and into the beginning of the next year. What market intelligence does tell us is that ourcore business (like the rest of the music industries) is set to reach a hiatus, with recovery expected to commence in Q1 2017. We continue to have confidence in our market approach and our new music and video and technical related initiatives are well positioned to regain our mission of 'IP' exploitation, growth and continued profit."

In September last year One Media announced that the Federal Court in Nashville Tennessee had issued a judgment for the sum of $781,846.32 USD (seven hundred & eighty one thousand, eight hundred and forty six dollars and 32 cents) (which includes costs of $9,928.82 USD) in favour of One Media iP Ltd against the HHO entities and Henry Hadaway personally for the wilful infringement of 1,466 (one thousand four hundred and sixty six) recordings from the Point Classics catalogue owned exclusively by One Media iP Ltd.
Having explored its legal options with regards to enforcing the award made by the Federal Court in Nashville Tennessee, One Media is pleased to update that it was informed by the Criminal Investigator's office of the United States Marshal of the Southern District of New York that it has successfully intercepted $44,585.94 of income due to Hadaway by its New York-based distributor from its on-going digital music exploitation within the United States. The Company is aware that Hadaway is now attempting to re-litigate the aforementioned judgment in Nashville Tennessee.
Michael Infante Chairman & CEO commented, "The Hadaway defendants have had ample time to defend this matter. They were served in accordance with the Hague Convention and a judgment against them was obtained in the State of Tennessee in accordance with US Law. They have had over two years in which to make legal representations in this case. They chose not to engage in the proceedings. Eight months have now passed since the ruling and the Group has been successful in its first collection of monies. One Media will robustly defend this attempt to undermine the judgment. In the meantime the United States Marshals Service will continue to enforce further collections of monies to satisfy this judgment."
