Dear Friends, WELCOME to the MIPTV Preview, where you can discover in-depth articles on some of the major subjects we will be discussing in Cannes. As the entertainment industry evolves, so does MIPTV. The business of buying and selling programming at an international level remains as important as ever. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new is that over the past two years we have added a clear focus on early-stage content development allowing GHOHJDWHV WR GLVFRYHU Ă&#x20AC;QDQFH DQG FRPPLVVLRQ QHZ projects. The most visible sign of this commitment was launched in 2018 with In Development â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Cannes Creative Drama Forum. This new programme, which returns in 2019 in partnership with CANNESERIES, is devoted to fast-tracking drama projects. Delegates attending In Development will have the opportunity to hear from creative leaders including the force behind such hit series as The Handmaidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tale, Empire and The L Word, Ilene Chaiken and Ash Attala, managing director, Roughcut TV, UK. After great feedback last year, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking In Development to the next level with the launch of In Development Kids â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a programme of events devoted to early stage live-action and pre-school animation for the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also introduced a service designed to support the sales process â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the MIP Buyers Exchange. This new matchmaking platform provides pre-scheduled curated meetings to supplement exhibitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agendas. If you are operating within Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s television industry or doing deals with French companies, MIPTV 2019 will be special as France is the MIPTV Country Of Honour. As a French company Reed MIDEM, supported by Television France International, is proud to promote the best of French programming, the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creativity and The French Touch to the rest of the world. As part of the busy schedule of events, top executives from leading French broadcasters, production and distribution companies will give keynote speeches on the French industry. And we hope that you will have time in Cannes to check out MIPTVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extensive conference programme which addresses the increasingly competitive and complex nature of the global industry today. When you arrive in Cannes you will see that high-end drama is still getting star billing and there will be many great shows being unveiled in the CANNESERIES festival, at our World Premiere TV Screenings and the MIPTV Market Screenings. The television content industry that comes together in Cannes is packed with inspirational leaders. In April, MIPTV will recognise four of them with its Medailles dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Honneur presentations to Mosunmola â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moâ&#x20AC;? Abudu of EbonyLife Media (Nigeria); Ilene Chaiken, writer, showrunner and producer (USA); Stephane Courbit of Banijay Group (France) and Jane Millichip of Sky Vision (UK). As you prepare for what is going to be a buzzing edition of MIPTV, I encourage you to check out the Previewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s articles which focus both on the event in Cannes and the global industry. Enjoy the read and we look forward to seeing you at MIPTV. Laurine GARAUDE Director, Television Division Reed MIDEM

UNDER the banner The French Touch, the France Country Of Honour programme of events is designed to showcase the â&#x20AC;&#x153;quality and diversity of French TV, and its producers and distributorsâ&#x20AC;?, according to TVFI director general Sarah Hemar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;MIPTV delegates should prepare to be overwhelmed!â&#x20AC;? Â´)URP DQLPDWLRQ WR Ă&#x20AC; FWLRQ IURP documentary to formats, France has champions in every genre,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But surprisingly the French have been too modest and maybe too isolated to join forces and showcase this creative quality as one to the world. France was MIPCOM Country Of Honour way back in 2004, and a lot has changed in our industrial landscape since then. This year, from conferences and panels to programme showcases, networking opportunities and screenings, The French Touch will be everywhere.â&#x20AC;? So what has changed in the past 15 years? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The same for France as for the rest of the world,â&#x20AC;? Hemar said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More screens, more diversiĂ&#x20AC; HG DXGLHQFHV DQG PRUH VHJPHQ tation. Altogether more of more!

French exports go well beyond Europe with a notable increase
in the US and Canada, up 16% last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we have very good reasons to be optimistic,â&#x20AC;? she said, but cautioned: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The market continues to get more complex, DQG WKH FRPSHWLWLRQ LV Ă&#x20AC; HUFH ZLWK other countries so we have to stay focused and work on consolidating this trend in the long term.â&#x20AC;? And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help at hand for the industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are lucky to have a number of institutions that actively support French TV exports in a number of ways,â&#x20AC;? Hemar said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;TVFI is the centrepiece for the TV professional: for 25 years it has been working alongside French distributors and producers to help accelerate their business worldwide. Our mission is to put them in the best context to be HIĂ&#x20AC; FLHQW DQG WR KHOS WKHP UHDFK as many broadcasters worldwide as possible.

She added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the years, French production has taken a growing share of the international market in every genre, from animation to documentary, formats and, of course, drama series.

ternational series festival CANNESERIES, In Development is dedicated to the development and promotion of new international productions. The forum is designed for producers, broadcasters, investors and distributors to come together on projects across all stages of development and production. It offers pitching opportunities, networking platforms and a programme of keynotes, master-classes and workshops, all of which are designed to move projects in development on to the next stage. In Development has been established to address the fact that core business activities have changed in the international market for content. More producers are looking for co-production and other sources of investment to meet growing budget constraints; distributors are increasingly entering projects at an earlier stage to address growing international demand for original content; and

RMANDO Nunez joined CBS 20 years ago as president of CBS Broadcast International. Today he oversees all domestic and international sales of CBS programming, and manages the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portfolio of international channels, including the recently acquired Network 10 in Australia. Before joining CBS, he worked in international sales for Universal, New World Television and Viacom. All of which makes him a seasoned veteran of the industry and someone who has witnessed most of the seismic changes it has gone through over the past four decades. +LV Ă&#x20AC; UVW 0,379 ZDV LQ DQG â&#x20AC;&#x153;through all the ups and downs and all the evolution thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been mostly driven by technology, and all the different business models that have evolved, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still all about the content isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? At the end of the day the business is driven by both the production of content and the purchase of content, albeit now on a global basis.â&#x20AC;? Across his 20 years at CBS Nunez said â&#x20AC;&#x153;the enormous successes that are CSI and NCIS have been important milestones. Also, the execution of our Showtime internaWLRQDO DIĂ&#x20AC; OLDWH VWUDWHJ\ ZLWK JUHDW partners that we have around the world â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like Bell, Sky, Telefonica, Canal+ and many others. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of our acquisition of Network 10 Australia, and our boutique channel business that we have in the UK in partnership with AMC. Some-
thing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been true to this business â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and really hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is the importance of the relationships and partnerships that we have with everyone around the world.â&#x20AC;? And while Nunez said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;impossibleâ&#x20AC;? to predict the global and sustained success of a franchise like CIS, the company takes the business of content creation very seriously. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We work very closely in the development process with all of our content creators, with our friends at both Showtime and our studio,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blue skies and actionâ&#x20AC;? usually work, Nunez said in the context of CBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest hits. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting now is that with the number of different platforms and types of delivery that exist around the world, â&#x20AC;&#x153;content doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always have to
appeal to a mass audienceâ&#x20AC;?. And the proliferation of new types of platform is only good news. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve produced and licensed content to a number of different broadcast and cable outlets in the US and you know, now we have 1HWĂ L[ DQG $PD]RQ DQG +XOX and others â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I think, the more the merrier. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a new thing to produce for new platforms.â&#x20AC;?
Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a new thing to produce for new rŃ˛- oulv He added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The traditional model was that you had a piece of content and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d license it to traditional platforms and its sucFHVV ZDV GHĂ&#x20AC; QHG E\ ZLQGRZLQJ that piece of content to multiple platforms over multiple seasons.
And then it becomes an important piece of your library that someone sitting in this chair 30 years from now will probably still be licensing. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that necessarily is going to change.â&#x20AC;? With the new platforms, â&#x20AC;&#x153;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to be able to exploit opportunities for a second cycle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; second windowsâ&#x20AC;?, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the new business model supports that in terms of the fact that the monetisation is greater. Again, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all good news. It just makes our world more complicated in terms of which road you go down to monetise your content.â&#x20AC;? For the future, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as one of the most recognised US brands, CBS is going to be around forever. And I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to continue to see a variety of different ways in which that brand is distributed both in the US and around the world.â&#x20AC;? As someone who has been at the top of his profession for several decades, Nunez said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an incredibly fortunate individual. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wanted to do since I was a child because I KDG WKH EHQHĂ&#x20AC; W RI ZDWFKLQJ P\ Dad doing a form of what I do now.

France is a country of creation: making movies was invented in France. And despite all the changes and challenges in our sector, television viewing in France is one of the highest in Europe, thanks to a rich and varied offer. France has authors, actors and producers whose talent is recognised throughout the world. So it seems natural to me that a creative territory like France should be honoured at the MIPTV, especially in Cannes! How is French content doing on the global marketplace? 7KH LQWHUQDWLRQDO LQĂ XHQFH RI French content has never been so strong. Much remains to be done, but 2018 is a record year for the export of French programmes.

This year you created Unify to bring together the digital activities of the TF1 group. How is the strategy working? The creation of Unify was the logical next step following our major acquisitions in the digital world since 2016. We brought together all our digital companies
(excluding OTT and Replay TV) around three businesses: publishers, brand solutions and services, and social media ecommerce. With a presence in 10 countries and more than 100 million unique visitors every month, Unify is today a major digital group built around federating content and services dedicated to female themes, cooking, health and entertainment. The creation of Unify will allow us to diversify our revenues streams with data and technology, social ecommerce and the subscription model.

What is TF1â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategy for the new TV landscape? Those who regularly announce the death of TV have not realised how much the TV media has changed, how much we have changed and how much we are alive. If there have been changes, there are more to come. What matters is the ability to adapt and to seize the opportunities. This has been our great success over the past years. We have accelerated our core broadcasting business transformation and boosted it with two new activities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Newen and Unify, which both have a great outlook. TF1 is no longer just an audiovisual group, it is now a major international media group and content creator, both on TV and digital.

In 1990 Breton created his own production company, Marathon, in association with Olivier Bremond. In 2006 after Olivier Bremondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure, Breton served as president of Marathon Group where, his hits included Babar and Saint-Tropez. He formed Federation in 2014, and launched it at MIPCOM where he announced the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut production, the political drama Marseille.

He spoke to Â&#x2020;Ń´b-m ;Â&#x2030;0Â&#x2039; ahead of his MIPTV Game _-m];uv h;Â&#x2039;mo|; ru;v;m|-ŕŚ&#x17E;om ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S SOME nine months since the broadcast platforms of Swedenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MTG broke away to become Nordic Entertainment Group â&#x20AC;&#x201D; known as the NENT Group. And since then, according to CEO Anders Jensen, the company has â&#x20AC;&#x153;come a long way in a very short timeâ&#x20AC;?. Its vision, he said, is to be the leading Nordic streaming service provider and content producer with a global appeal â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I feel that every day takes us closer to where we want to beâ&#x20AC;?. He added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a clear and well-established strategy, a striking corporate brand and a new organisation. We will soon have our own share ticker too, and will be inviting investors to join what I am FRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQW ZLOO EH D JUHDW ULGH Âľ Splitting a company in two goes against the trend of consolidation. So what was the reasoning behind it? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consolidation is based on creating more scale and synergies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; NENT Group, on the other hand, is different to the companies around us,â&#x20AC;? Jensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This split is all about focus. It gives both NENT Group and MTG an opportunity to shape the future of their respective industries, which in our case means reinforcing our position as the leading entertainment provider in the Nordic region. There are so many opportunities for both companies, and now the time is right to split.â&#x20AC;?
In less than a year NENT Group has premiered over 20 original series, close to half of which have already been sold to platforms around the world. And the target is at least 20 more every year. The group also operates both broadcast and streaming services which, Jensen said, work happily together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our platforms are complementary and enable us to reach, monetise and engage on a pan-Nordic basis. We own an ecosystem in which the various elements support our ambition to assume leadership in a fast-moving media landscape,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking at broadcast, advertising is an important part of our Ă&#x20AC;QDQFLDO PRGHO 2XU VWUDWHJ\ LV to become less exposed here by growing our subscription business â&#x20AC;&#x201D; driven by streaming â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and by getting more out of our own production companies.â&#x20AC;? Many media companies with activities in traditional linear and pay TV see streaming as a threat, or at least a challenge, but Jensen said he sees â&#x20AC;&#x153;a huge opportunity in streaming. Today, close to half of Nordic households use streaming services, with an average of 1.4 subscriptions per streaming household. A fair assessment is that the number of households with a streaming service will reach nearly 100% at some point, and the subscription service average SHU KRXVHKROG ZLOO EH VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQW-
ly higher than now. But you need to be very clear in your customer proposition to prevail.â&#x20AC;? Content creation is crucial to the mix, Jensen said, and that happens via the entities NENT Studios and DRG. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Creativity is our strategy,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practically in our DNA; just look at the way ZH ODXQFKHG RXU Ă&#x20AC;UVW VWUHDPLQJ service back in 2007 when most of us were still getting to grips ZLWK WKH Ă&#x20AC;UVW L3KRQH OHW DORQH WKH idea of watching series via the internet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our partnerships show this very clearly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for example, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a founding member of Atrium TV, ZKLFK LV WKH ZRUOGÂˇV Ă&#x20AC;UVW JOREDO commissioning club for regional OTT services. And in January, we announced a UK-based joint venture with FilmNation Entertainment to develop, produce DQG Ă&#x20AC;QDQFH SUHPLXP VFULSWHG television content for global audiences. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see us doing more of this and taking an even more active role in more parts of the value chain.â&#x20AC;?

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big believer in partnerships and alliances as a means to create scale while staying different.â&#x20AC;?

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new in 2019? Prepare for Big Brother on the beach FOUR Fresh TV sessions are taking place during MIPTV. Presented by Virginia Mouseler, CEO of Switzerland-based research agency The Wit, the sessions focus RQ HQWHUWDLQPHQW IRUPDWV Ă&#x20AC;FWLRQ and kids content. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new is the area of entertainment and game shows is that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place for small ambitions,â&#x20AC;? Mouseler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a market concentrated around a few long-running gigantic global formats, small looks beautiful. Small and smart means being simple, accessible and affordable.â&#x20AC;? She added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Easy quizzes, realistic stakes, stupid or basic challenges â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way to make a living alongside the likes of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire or Deal Or No Deal, which are coming back younger than ever.â&#x20AC;? In the kids market Mouseler observes two notable trends: â&#x20AC;&#x153;First, the SVOD players are now looking after the kids and this may have long-term consequences,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids market has
long been driven in many territories by two forces: linear public broadcasters and merchandising. Without any public service educational editorial guidelines, the content offered to kids may evolve. And who will retain the vital merchandising rights? On another level Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised by the longevity of the live-action kids game-show genre: kids still love to play.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile high-end drama wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away. Demand is high, bingeing is what we all do now. So what new content is being produced to satisfy this demand? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is interesting is the fact that now there are series for everyone, everybody, everywhere. Diversity is the key word. All niches, all tastes, all communities, all target groups, all genres,â&#x20AC;? Mouseler said. And again â&#x20AC;&#x153;two interesting trends are to be observed: one, how linear broadcasters are better serving their traditionally female core target with series centred around a new generation
of post-#metoo heroines; and how SVOD is seducing young DGXOWV ZLWK QRW RQO\ VFL Ă&#x20AC; EXW D new generation of thrillers and romantic soaps.â&#x20AC;? And the formats bubble seems unlikely to burst in the foreseeable future. The global nature of the industry means formattable content is good news both for rights owners and for broadcasters and platforms. But how is this genre staying fresh? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would rather talk now of non-scripted IPs: the whole mar-
ket, scripted and unscripted, is now centered around IP trading and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the formats business is about now, less about creating something new than exploiting something great,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So the non-scripted trend is IP with a twist: adding narrative and technical game-changing elements to singing, dancing and dating. So I see something like Big Brother on the beach as a possible trend for 2019!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ The Fresh TV programme at MIPTV: Fresh TV Formats, Tuesday, April 9 at 08.45; Fresh TV Kids, Tuesday, April 9 at 12.00; Fresh TV Fiction, Wednesday, April 10 at 12.45 (subject to change)

The SDGs aim to promote prosperity everywhere while protecting the planet. They include an end to extreme poverty, achieving gender equality, access to quality education for all, access to clean water and sanitation and addressing climate change. On September 23, 2018, the UN launched the Sustainable Development Goals Media Compact, an initiative to advance awareness of the issues that are the focus of the SDGs. It is an alliance of news and entertainment media outlets and it is committed to working with the UN to foster public discourse and spur action. The aim is to inspire media and entertainment companies around the world to leverage their resources and creative talent to advance the SDGs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Together, we commit to playing our part to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals,â&#x20AC;? Olusola Momoh, chairwoman, Channels Media Group-Nigeria, said at the launch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are an alliance of news and entertainment media and we are committing to work with the United Nations to foster public discourse and spur action on the SDGs.â&#x20AC;? She added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where necessary, we will hold governments to account for the bold promise they have made to their people and to the world.â&#x20AC;? The SDG Media Compact aims to
embrace media companies from all regions and all platforms. Participating organisations will have the opportunity to create content partnerships with the United Nations, whereby the organisation will increase its efforts to source and share high-value media content and newsworthy opportunities relating to the SDGs.
â&#x20AC;&#x153;Achieving the Goals by 2030 will require concerted actions by everyone. By telling stories, news and entertainment media have a critical role in multiplying messages and propagating new ways of behaving,â&#x20AC;?

The series has been commissioned for ITV by head of drama Polly Hill. Set at the turn of the 19th century in Delhi, the drama follows the fortunes of the residents of Beecham House, a mansion surrounded by acres of exotic woods and pristine lawns. Handsome former soldier, John Beecham, has acquired the house to start a new life for his family and a business as a trader. Written by Gurinder Chadha, Paul Mayeda Berges (Viceroyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House), Shahrukh Husain (In Custody) and Victor Levin (Mad Men), the six-part series shot in India towards the end of last year. Caroline Levy is series producer and FremantleMedia International is global distributor for the series.
Tom Bateman (Vanity Fair, Jekyll And Hyde) takes the role of John Beecham. Wealthy and distinguished, he has witnessed profiteering and exploitation during his time with the East India Company and has resolved to be fairer in the way he conducts his business as a trader and is determined to escape his previous life. He arrives at the house with a child named August and two Indian nursemaids, Chanchal (Shriya Pilgaonkar) and Maya (Trupti Khamkar) and there is speculation that he may be the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father. One of the Indian nursemaids, the beautiful Chanchal, is overly protective and particularly fond of the child. Could she be Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lover and the mother of August? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beecham House is a passion project that is driven by my commitment to telling diverse, emotionally engaging stories for mainstream international audiences,â&#x20AC;? Chadha said. Though set over 100 years ago,
Chadha said that period drama can be entertaining while being â&#x20AC;&#x153;ambitious and relevant to key issues of todayâ&#x20AC;?. The original characters, played by a â&#x20AC;&#x153;vibrant cast of British and Indian actors, will appeal to global audiences hungry to see stories from a unique point of view,â&#x20AC;? she added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up with Raj dramas like Jewel In The Crown, The Far Pavilions and A Passage To India. Beecham House is my chance to tell those stories from a British-Asian perspective.â&#x20AC;? The ensemble cast includes Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey), Gregory Fitoussi (Mr. Selfridge, Spiral), Adil Ray (Citizen Khan, Ackley Bridge), Pallavi Sharda (Lion), and Marc Warren (Safe, Hustle). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tom Bateman is perfect casting as John Beecham and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled Lesley Nicol, Adil Ray, Pallavi Sharda, Marc Warren and Gregory Fitoussi have agreed to play such key roles,â&#x20AC;? ITVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gurinder brings a fresh take to period drama, but at its heart are wonderful characters and a compelling story that will make this a treat in the ITV schedule next year.â&#x20AC;? Bend It TV, founded by Chadha, recently joined forces with Fremantle to create diverse scripted and non-scripted TV content. The company currently has commissions for returning premium drama series with ITV Drama, BBC Drama and Sky Atlantic.

N RECENT years, there has been plenty of discussion about the growing appeal of non-English language drama to audiences around the world. But running in parallel with this has been another creative trend â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the emergence of big-budget multi-language series. It started with a few isolated examples of multi-language dramas, with Lilyhammer, The Bridge, Occupied and The Last Panthers among the pioneers. %XW WKHQ FDPH 1HWĂ L[ÂˇV FULWLcally acclaimed Narcos, which
seems to have opened the Ă RRGJDWHV Vanessa Shapiro, president of worldwide television distribution and co-production at Gaumont Television, who is distributing Narcos to international buyers, says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Narcos is a great H[DPSOH RI 79ÂˇV VKLIW WRZDUGV organic, authentic storytelling. A US character might speak to a Colombian character in English but, when the two groups speak among themselves, they speak in English and Spanish UHVSHFWLYHO\ ZKLFK UHĂ HFWV KRZ it works in real life.â&#x20AC;?
Of course, the implication of this is that a large percentage of the show needs to be subtitled or dubbed. But that is not a major impediment to exportability, Shapiro says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many countries are used to dubbing and subtitling so, for them, there is no issue with multi-language series. The big shift is that English-language markets are more receptive than they used to be. I think the Narcos audience would rather see Pablo Escobar speak Spanish than accented English.â&#x20AC;?

But as long as there is a legitimate reason to use a particular language, any combination can work, says Atar Dekel, head of global original drama at Keshet International. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a crime thriller called Diamonds, which is set in Antwerp and produced in Flemish and English. And we are developing French/Hebrew series A Long Night In Paris. There are also German/ Hebrew and Polish/Hebrew projects in the works, as well as The Summer Of 2014, a production for HBO in English, Hebrew and Arabic.â&#x20AC;?

This openness to multi-language drama is evident across the industry. Moritz Polter, executive producer of international TV series at Bavaria Fiction, points to Das Boot, co-produced by Bavaria Fiction, Sonar Entertainment and Sky Deutschland, whose cast was around 70% German, 20% French and 10% English. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The crew on the U-boat spoke predominately German, but the resistance storyline on land in La Rochelle was a mix of German, French and English.â&#x20AC;? Polter adds that, in Bavaria FicWLRQÂˇV FXOWXUH FODVK GUDPHG\

Like Dekel, Torrance believes that the quality of the story is more important than the language: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strong storytelling and good production values will always resonate with global audiences regardless of the language mix or national origin.â&#x20AC;? However, she says there is a challenge for channels in dubbing markets: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a channel decides to dub everything into their language, then it becomes no different from any other acquired foreign-language series.

Fremantle, for example, has been facilitating projects between UK-based indie 87 Films, with which it has a creative partnership, and its own companies across Europe. 87 Films co-founders Dudi Appleton and Jim Keeble are working with Wildside in Italy

The result, Appleton says, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;authentic drama that breaks through borders of culture, language and placeâ&#x20AC;?. Most multilingual dramas tend to be based around two languages, but Oliver Berben, member of the executive board at Constantin Film and executive producer of mini-series 7KH 0DVWHU %XWFKHUÂˇV 6LQJLQJ &OXE VD\V Â´, ZRXOGQÂˇW VD\ WKHUHÂˇV DQ RSWLPXP QXPEHU RI languages, because it depends on the way they work together. ,Q 7KH 0DVWHU %XWFKHUÂˇV 6LQJing Club, three languages are spoken: German, English and some Lakota.

One thing about which Berben is very clear is that languages should not be shoehorned into a series for the purposes of a territorial deal: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever someone tries to include different countries or languages only in order to sell it to those countries, it fails.â&#x20AC;? While there is a logic to non-English content creators mingling languages â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps combining their own culture with the universality of English â&#x20AC;&#x201D; English-language players are also getting into this game. The BBC used multiple languages in SULPHWLPH VHULHV 0F0DĂ&#x20AC;D UHcently renewed for season two.

HE GENERAL consensus in kids’ TV is that animation is more exportable than live action, primarily because it is easier to localise. When you also take into account the fact that animation tends to have longer shelf-life — live-action casts get older — and that it lends itself to licensing and merchandising, it is easy to see why this is where the lion’s share

of kids’ investment goes. Yet children’s live action is in pretty good shape right now. Aside from being a scheduling stalwart for Disney, Nickelodeon and Europe’s well-resourced public broadcasters, kids’ comedy and drama have both become VWDSOHV RQ 1HWÁL[ DQG $PD]RQ in recent years. Cottonwood Media CEO David Michel says the appeal of his company’s hit show, Find
FEATURE: CHILDRENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S LIVE ACTION Me In Paris, has surprised even him. The English-language time-travelling fantasy adventure is set against the backdrop of the Paris Opera House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are starting on our third series, which is great when you consider that each season has 26 episodes,â&#x20AC;? Michel says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the show has sold well in most parts of the world.â&#x20AC;? Aside from launch partners France TV and ZDF/ZDF Enterprises, Find Me In Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; buyers have included Disney France/Italy, Nickelodeon UK, NBCUniversal US and ABC Australia. Part of the tween showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success, Michel says, is down to its premium production values and Â´DPD]LQJ ZULWLQJÂľ %XW KH DOVR believes Find Me In Paris has Ă&#x20AC;OOHG DQ XQWDSSHG JDS LQ WKH market: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pay-TV channels tend to focus on comedy and the SVOD platform shows are often not available for channels
to buy. Pubcasters like CBBC in the UK make great shows, but they tend to be the kind of socially realistic shows that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t travel so well. So all of that left a void in the market when Find Me In Paris arrived.â&#x20AC;? This is not to say it was an easy show to pull off: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t many players in the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market that can make an expensive show like this happen. So we were fortunate to have ZDF Enterprises involved, because they have experience working with Australian producer Jonathan Shiff on this kind of show.â&#x20AC;? The big question for Cottonwood is how it keeps up the momentum. Michel says season three of Find Me In Paris is a key juncture for the show â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the point at which it will become clear if it has to come to a natural end or if new characters can take it forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition, we
are developing an English-language book-based property,â&#x20AC;? he adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we have partnered with Canada-based producer 6DUDK +DDV] >7KH 1H[W 6WHS@ on developing shows for North America.â&#x20AC;? So is Find Me In Paris a one-off or it is part of a broader trend in favour of kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; live action? Michael Goldsmith, vice-president of original production at DHX Media, is upbeat suggesting that â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been a better time to make TV shows in this genre. There are more buyers and there just seems to be a bigger appetite for different kinds of kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; live action right now.â&#x20AC;?

That has just been renewed for a second season, ZKLOH WKH Ă&#x20AC; UVW VHDVRQ ZDV OL FHQVHG WR 1HWĂ L[ Âľ In addition, DHX also seeks to draw inspiration from adult series â&#x20AC;&#x153;that might be reimagined for the tween audience,â&#x20AC;? Goldsmith says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bajillionaires is our look at entrepreneur kids and has the feel of a kid-appropriate Silicon Valley. A
lot of what you see in the adult bingeing space can provide creative clues.â&#x20AC;? If there is a trend, Goldsmith says, it is earlier engagement with buyers: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have our pasVLRQ SURMHFWV %XW LWÂˇV GLIĂ&#x20AC; FXOW when you take a great project or script out to the market and no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interested.

ics of creating kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; live action for the global market can seem daunting, Brain Power Studio founder and executive producer Beth Stevenson points out that the same is true of animation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can spend four years investing in an animation VHULHV RQO\ WR Ă&#x20AC; QG WKH PDUNHW isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Live action has the advantage of quicker turnaround.â&#x20AC;?

reer creating kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; live action, says a clear plus point for tween drama is that it can encourage co-viewing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you get the story and characters right, then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hit a cross-generational family audience,â&#x20AC;? she adds.

Stevenson says. Echoing trends in adult drama, Stevenson does not rule out the possibility that some of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singles might form the basis of ongoing TV series: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are talking to buyers about a few ideas. The great thing about producing TV movies is that they can act as back-door pilots for returnable franchises.â&#x20AC;? While a lot of the export activity in kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; live action is English-language â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ABC Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nowhere Boys is another well-travelled series â&#x20AC;&#x201D; there are signs that the genre, like adult scripted, is opening up to the prospect of non-English series. Nicola Andrews, senior sales and commercial director, kids, at Keshet International (KI), says her companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hebrew-language childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dramas, including Spell Keepers and The Hood, have been selling well in their original form. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a bit sceptical

Andrews says one factor in KIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favour is that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Israeli kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shows tend to be a bit edgier than most of the content you see for tweens and young teens.

While KI is enjoying success at the edgy, older end of the spectrum, there is also evidence that scripted shows can work for pre-schoolers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an audience traditionally regarded as too young to follow plots and character development over multiple episodes.

“Time-shifted viewing, when fans watch at a time that suits them, is becoming the norm,” Vaulpre says, citing eight-part thriller Killing Eve, which the BBC transmitted on terrestrial, online and on-demand in the UK last year. “For the average amount of time spent time-shifting TV programmes, the UK is among the highest, along with the US, Belgium and Canada. When you look at the weight of live viewing for Killing Eve, it was not strong. But it was pre-broadcast online, so episode eight was on digital, not tradiWLRQDO 79 7KDW ZDV D QHZ H[SHrience, but it was very successful because it generated eight million viewers in total, compared to 5.6 million on live TV alone. This taught the broadcaster that there is a completely new way of viewing TV. In the end, there was a larger audience.”
Avril Blondelot, content insight director, Eurodata TV Worldwide (France) “Broadcasters have so much content, they want to keep up with trends,” Blondelot says, adding that understanding the viewing numbers alone is no longer enough. “That is why we joined forces with our sub-

Then, a new phenomenon emerged about a year ago: the transmission of Latin American telenovelas followed by magazine-style shows that had presenters and zealous fans discussing the plots in their local languages. Those offshoots turned out to be ratings sensations.
