EDITORIAL

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. What’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€QDQFH DQG FRPPLVVLRQ QHZ projects. The most visible sign of this commitment was launched in 2018 with In Development — 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 Handmaid’s Tale, Empire and The L Word, Ilene Chaiken and Ash Attala, managing director, Roughcut TV, UK. After great feedback last year, we’re taking In Development to the next level with the launch of In Development Kids — a programme of events devoted to early stage live-action and pre-school animation for the kids’ market. We’ve also introduced a service designed to support the sales process — the MIP Buyers Exchange. This new matchmaking platform provides pre-scheduled curated meetings to supplement exhibitor’s agendas. If you are operating within France’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 country’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 MIPTV’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 d’Honneur presentations to Mosunmola “Moâ€? 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 Preview’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 “quality and diversity of French TV, and its producers and distributorsâ€?, according to TVFI director general Sarah Hemar. “MIPTV delegates should prepare to be overwhelmed!â€? ´)URPDQLPDWLRQWRĂ€FWLRQIURP documentary to formats, France has champions in every genre,â€? she said. “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€? So what has changed in the past 15 years? “The same for France as for the rest of the world,â€? Hemar said. “More screens, more diversiĂ€HGDXGLHQFHVDQGPRUHVHJPHQ tation. Altogether more of more!

In September TVFI reported imSUHVVLYH Ă€JXUHV IRU )UHQFK 79 programming in foreign markets for 2017, with a total revenue of â‚Ź325m — the country’s second-best performance in 20 years.

And there’s help at hand for the industry. “We are lucky to have a number of institutions that actively support French TV exports in a number of ways,â€?

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 company’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. +LVĂ€UVW0,379ZDVLQDQG “through all the ups and downs and all the evolution that’s been mostly driven by technology, and all the different business models that have evolved, it’s still all about the content isn’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€? Across his 20 years at CBS Nunez said “the enormous successes that are CSI and NCIS have been important milestones. Also, the execution of our Showtime internaWLRQDODIĂ€OLDWHVWUDWHJ\ZLWKJUHDW partners that we have around the world — like Bell, Sky, Telefonica, Canal+ and many others. And I’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 that’s always been true to this business — and really hasn’t changed — is the importance of the relationships and partnerships that we have with everyone around the world.� And while Nunez said it’s “impossible� to predict the global and sustained success of a franchise like CIS, the company takes the business of content creation very seriously. “We work very closely in the development process with all of our content creators, with our friends at both Showtime and our studio,� he said. “Blue skies and action� usually work, Nunez said in the context of CBS’s biggest hits. But what’s exciting now is that with the number of different platforms and types of delivery that exist around the world, “content doesn’t always have to

appeal to a mass audienceâ€?. And the proliferation of new types of platform is only good news. “We’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 — I think, the more the merrier. It’s not a new thing to produce for new platforms.â€?

It’s not a new thing to produce for new rѲ-oulv He added: “The traditional model was that you had a piece of content and you’d license it to traditional platforms and its sucFHVV ZDV GHĂ€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 don’t think that necessarily is going to change.â€? With the new platforms, “you’re not going to be able to exploit opportunities for a second cycle — second windowsâ€?, he said. “But the new business model supports that in terms of the fact that the monetisation is greater. Again, it’s all good news. It just makes our world more complicated in terms of which road you go down to monetise your content.â€? For the future, “as one of the most recognised US brands, CBS is going to be around forever. And I think you’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€? As someone who has been at the top of his profession for several decades, Nunez said: “I’m an incredibly fortunate individual. I’m doing what I’ve wanted to do since I was a child because I KDG WKH EHQHĂ€W RI  ZDWFKLQJ P\ Dad doing a form of what I do now. I had the opportunity to see how this would evolve into a global business. Back then I saw the power of the medium and it wasn’t all based on the US model.â€?

You want to wake up every morning and feel excited. ,I \RX¡UHZLOOLQJWRPDNHVDFULĂ€FHV and be on the global side of the business and have the opportunity to travel around the world, and see how content is created around the world, what we do is fascinating.

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. France has built a worldwide reputation in animation over many years, and drama and documenataries are growing in exports.

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.

You are speaking at MIPTV this year. What will the Cannes audience hear from you? I am very excited to share our vision of TV with everyone at 0,379$W7)ZHDUHFRQĂ€GHQW about the future of TV, a media that has no equivalent when it comes to sharing with the audience and creating social connections. We want to encourage creators to be bold. Our market is at a turning point and TF1, as a leader, wants to be a key player in the transformation of the sector. Talents who want to push bound-

What is TF1’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 — 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.

The company formed in January after Wachsberger joined forces with Lionel Uzan and Pascal Breton of studio Federation to focus on international co-productions and the development and production of premium television series for the US marketplace.

With a strong line-up of hits to his name including La La Land and The Hunger Games, Wachsberger is following the now well-trodden path from cinema to television having expressed for some time his desire to expand into other media. “After starting the original summit in 1993 and its ultimate sale to Lionsgate in 2012, I have been interested in creating content for not just the cinema but for all platforms,â€? he said. “I therefore could QRW Ă€QG D EHWWHU JURXS WR

In 1990 Breton created his own production company, Marathon, in association with Olivier Bremond. In 2006 after Olivier Bremond’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 company’s debut production, the political drama Marseille. Back then he described the company as “an industry game-changer, offering producers and showrunners unique partnership opportunities and offering programmers worldwide an unprecedented wealth of major creative talent.� Based in Paris, Los Angeles and Rome, Federation Entertainment has quickly established itself as a leading independent European studio. The creation of Picture

Perfect Federation enhances Federation’s growing business worldwide, with some 15 successful series in production in 12 countries. Federation US, meanwhile, has a slate of series for global audiences including the recently announced launch of the adaptation of The Banker’s Wife, the best-seller from Cristina Alger; Ibiza, a thriller created by Ryan Engle (Rampage) and director Jaume Collet Serra; and Peter Landesman’s American adaptation of Canal +’s number-one series Le Bureau Des Legendes (The Bureau), for which Federation is the distributor and co-producer with TOP, The Oligarchs Production.

Äź l0u-1;1oŃ´Ń´-0ou-াom-m7 tell the best stories’ Anders Jensen was appointed president & CEO of Nordic Entertainment uo†rbmrubŃ´Ć‘Ć?Ć?Ńś-[;uv;uˆbm]-v ;Š;1Â†ŕŚžÂˆ;ˆb1;ĹŠru;vb7;m|-m7 o= MTG Nordic Entertainment. He spoke to †Ѵb-m;‰0‹ ahead of his MIPTV Game _-m];uvh;‹mo|;ru;v;m|-াom IT’S SOME nine months since the broadcast platforms of Sweden’s MTG broke away to become Nordic Entertainment Group — known as the NENT Group. And since then, according to CEO Anders Jensen, the company has “come a long way in a very short timeâ€?. Its vision, he said, is to be the leading Nordic streaming service provider and content producer with a global appeal “and I feel that every day takes us closer to where we want to beâ€?. He added: “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€GHQWZLOOEHDJUHDWULGHÂľ Splitting a company in two goes against the trend of consolidation. So what was the reasoning behind it? “Consolidation is based on creating more scale and synergies — NENT Group, on the other hand, is different to the companies around us,â€? Jensen said. “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€?

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. “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€? he said. “Looking at broadcast, advertising is an important part of our Ă€QDQFLDO PRGHO 2XU VWUDWHJ\ LV to become less exposed here by growing our subscription business — driven by streaming — and by getting more out of our own production companies.â€? 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 “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 SHUKRXVHKROGZLOOEHVLJQLĂ€FDQW-

ly higher than now. But you need to be very clear in your customer proposition to prevail.â€? Content creation is crucial to the mix, Jensen said, and that happens via the entities NENT Studios and DRG. “Creativity is our strategy,â€? he said. “It’s practically in our DNA; just look at the way ZH ODXQFKHG RXU Ă€UVW VWUHDPLQJ service back in 2007 when most of us were still getting to grips ZLWKWKHĂ€UVWL3KRQHOHWDORQHWKH idea of watching series via the internet. “Our partnerships show this very clearly — for example, we’re a founding member of Atrium TV, ZKLFK LV WKH ZRUOG¡V Ă€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€QDQFH SUHPLXP VFULSWHG television content for global audiences. You’ll see us doing more of this and taking an even more active role in more parts of the value chain.â€?

MIPTV PREVIEW • 26 • March 2019

In his Game Changers keynote, Jensen will explain how NENT Group’s partnerships and co-operation “show that inclusivity can build something unique. I’m a big believer in partnerships and alliances as a means to create scale while staying different.â€? He added: “I’ll share some of our stories — the Nordic original productions that are going global. I’ll also reveal what we think consumers and customers really want from entertainment providers. And I’ll explain why, in an industry that’s changing so fast, working in new ways can bring out the best in each other.â€?

What’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 RQHQWHUWDLQPHQWIRUPDWVĂ€FWLRQ and kids content. “What’s new is the area of entertainment and game shows is that there’s a place for small ambitions,â€? Mouseler said. “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€? She added: “Easy quizzes, realistic stakes, stupid or basic challenges — that’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€? In the kids market Mouseler observes two notable trends: “First, the SVOD players are now looking after the kids and this may have long-term consequences,â€? she said. “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 I’m surprised by the longevity of the live-action kids game-show genre: kids still love to play.� Meanwhile high-end drama won’t go away. Demand is high, bingeing is what we all do now. So what new content is being produced to satisfy this demand? “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,� Mouseler said. And again “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 DGXOWVZLWKQRWRQO\VFLĂ€EXWD new generation of thrillers and romantic soaps.â€? 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? “I would rather talk now of non-scripted IPs: the whole mar-

ket, scripted and unscripted, is now centered around IP trading and that’s what the formats business is about now, less about creating something new than exploiting something great,â€? she said. “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€? • 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.

â&#x20AC;˘ Beecham House will be presented as a MIPTV World Premiere TV Screening in association with CANNESERIES on Sunday, April 7 at 19.00 in the Grand Auditorium Tom Bateman as John Beecham

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[¡V 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[DPSOHRI 79¡VVKLIWWRZDUGV 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\ZKLFKUHĂ HFWVKRZ 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;?

This openness to multi-language drama is evident across the industry.

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. But they might try and preserve the distinctions by dubbing some elements and subtitling others.â&#x20AC;?

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 %XWFKHU¡V 6LQJLQJ &OXE VD\V ´, ZRXOGQ¡W VD\ WKHUH¡VDQRSWLPXPQXPEHURI  languages, because it depends on the way they work together. ,Q 7KH 0DVWHU %XWFKHU¡V 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

Aside from being a scheduling stalwart for Disney, Nickelodeon and Europe’s well-resourced public broadcasters, kids’ comedy and drama have both become VWDSOHVRQ1HWÁL[DQG$PD]RQ in recent years.

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.

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

Hahn is heading to MIPTV with a slate that includes Cousins For Life, The Bureau Of Magical Things and TV movie Bixler High Private Eye, along with existing hits Hunter Street, Henry Danger, I Am Frankie and The Thundermans. Notwithstanding Hahnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emphasis on genre neutrality, she says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of live actionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest strengths is that you can get it to market faster than animation and work with it in real time, making it more UHĂ HFWLYH RI  FXUUHQW WUHQGV and developments.

Considering the massive disruption caused by the OTT streaming services and other SVOD operators, such services are inevitable.

Here, top-level data analysts share the industry trends they have observed from tech-powered research… Frederic Vaulpre, vicepresident, Eurodata TV Worldwide (France)

“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 tradiWLRQDO797KDWZDVDQHZH[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-

Additionally, with Nielsen Advanced Advertising innovations in ACR [automatic content recognition] technology and analytics, we’re making TV content even more measurable and targetable, moving from a one-to-many to a one-to-one medium. “Nielsen ACR technology, which is currently in millions of smart TVs, is the backbone for more personalised, targeted advertising on linear TV.

Additionally, they will begin to be able to differentiate the noise from the data that can actually provide consistent and on-going benchmarks from which to understand not only what content consumers want, but also how to promote it across the various platforms available to them.”

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The market for video content is increasingly global, amplified by social-media marketing and word-of-mouth, and this is competing with local broadcaster efforts.

Going viral on social media is the clip of two iconic Warner Bros. cartoon characters, Wile E Coyote and the Road Runner, chasing each other at whirlwind speed in a real-life car park. The AR experience, which could be seen by anyone passing by with the appropriate smartphone app, was created by New Yorkbased AR developer Abhishek Singh using Apple ARKit software development tool and SLAM (simultaneous localisation and mapping), which is used to enable robots to know where they are located.

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.
