MIPTV DRAWS TO A CLOSE IN CANNES

Written by Daniel Kirby on 7th April 2016

This year's MipTV saw over 11,000 attendees from 100 different countries, and provided a platform for a variety of deals to be made within the TV and digital content industries. 

Several interesting drama series held their premieres at the event this year whilst others had their international rights sold and are now set to make their way to foreign shores.

Amongst those moving abroad are Kudos' 'Capital', a British series heading to Australasia and the US, and Spanish drama series 'Locked Up', a women's prison survival thriller which saw its UK rights bought by Channel 4's VOD service Walter Presents.

One series which saw its world premiere was 'Roots', a historical drama miniseries based on a 1976 novel and following the journey of a family fighting slavery, whilst drama series 'The Collection' also had a popular premiere at the event.
