Reed MIDEM has confirmed the line-up for this year’s MIPDrama, the annual premium drama showcase offering international buyers an exclusive first-look at a curated selection of the most anticipated series in production around the world.
The sixth edition of this unique event is open to all registered buyers and will take place online on Friday 9 April 2021 (12.30 CEST).
This happens just ahead of Digital MIPTV Week which this year runs exclusively online from 12-16 April. The showcase will then be available on Digital MIPTV’s catch up service until 16 April.
MIPDrama will be hosted by French actress, comedian and singer Joséphine Draï, recently starring in French Netflix hit Plan Coeur, who will introduce 10-minute long exclusive previews of 12 upcoming series, each selected for their writing and production values, originality, and their worldwide appeal.
After the screenings, participating buyers will be invited to vote for their “Coup de Cœur”, with the winner being revealed online on Friday 16 April.
The selection has been made with the support of the MIPDrama Buyers Advisory Board, comprised of leading global industry executives with extensive experience in acquisitions, co-productions, and international business development.
According to Sarah Wright, Director of Sky Cinema & Acquisitions, Sky UK, “After the terrible, tumultuous year that was 2020, it is really uplifting to see such a strong list for MIPDrama’s Official Selection this year. From a fabulous new take on a classic Queen to a mysterious dive beneath the surface of a picturesque British seaside town, via ethical dilemmas, raucous dramedy, thrilling investigations and so much more, there is a dazzling array of programming on offer this year.”
