MIPTV - British drama 'Capital' destined for US and beyond

Written by Daniel Kirby on 5th April 2016

The three part miniseries Capital, which is produced by Kudos for the BBC, has been licensed by Pivot in the US, Shaw in Canada and BBC Worldwide in Australia and New Zealand.  

The series stars Toby Jones and follows the intertwining lives of a group of Londoners on a single suburban street. The residents of the street receive a threatening postcard in their mail, and are forced to work together to find out who is behind the message and what it is that they want.

Jens Richter, CEO of FremantleMedia Intl. announced that “’Capital’ is a powerful, intelligent and character-driven drama created by one of the most prolific production companies in the world. These impressive deals are a testament to the series’ ability to capture modern society in a way that’s current and universally relevant to a global audience.”

The drama has been critically well-received in the UK, and the buyers will be hoping it finds success in its new international destinations.
